Chic Checkers
Do the mile-long walk from parking, the colossal lines at check-in, and removing your shoes at security get you down? Let this handsome portable checkers set from Gucci restore your faith in the glamour of travel. Crafted from the finest butter-soft, chocolate leather, the roll-up board comes with 24 pieces forged of light- and dark-brown leather, each embossed with the interlocking G that makes them distinctively Gucci. Plus, it all fits into a Guccissima leather tube bag for easy packing and carrying. “This exquisite checkers set is the kind of thing every family should have,” says Michael Schwartz, chef and owner of Michael’s Genuine Food & Drink and Harry’s Pizzeria. “You know, for those cold nights when you’re curled up next to the fire for game night.” Handcrafted by its skilled leather artisans, this Gucci set is a grown-up and sophisticated travel companion, as well as a perfect addition to an evening at home with family, friends, and any other worthy and skilled opponents.
