Hammond Chess Set by Ralph Lauren Hammond Chess Set by Ralph Lauren

While the combination of rain and Mondays is less than awe-inspiring, a gloomy afternoon is the perfect excuse for a lengthy game of chess. If this all sounds a little snoozy to you, then behold the ultra-sleek creation that is the $2,000 Hammond chess set by Ralph Lauren. Luxe leather, blackened nickel and a glittering case make the boardgame appear downright snazzy, no?

Between Kate's goth getup and McQueen's skull umbrella, maybe we're feeling a bit morbid today on this dreary Monday. Next up? DSquared2's gray V-neck, seemingly simple from the front but cut into a creepy skeleton in the back. This isn't the first time the boys have dabbled in bones---remember these spinal cord platforms? THE DETAILS: DSquared2 V-neck embroidery tee, $520, www.luisaviaroma.com

Between the new Hermes ad and this McQueen umbrella, we at Chic are embracing the Sherlock Holmes vibe with open arms. In sleek silver and black, the shiny skull handle is reminiscent of walking canes used by fine gentlemen on Savile Row before the turn of the century. Whether it's a stroll in Hyde Park or Central Park, this umbrella will do a bloody good job of keeping you dry from summer showers and fall floods. THE DETAILS: Barneys, $495

Kate Moss for i-D Kate Moss for i-D

The terrifying prospect of shattered ankles is enough to keep Chic out of Daphne Guinness-esque footwear (Repettos suit us just fine, merci), but Kate Moss shows no fear in this i-D spread, shot by Nick Knight. They may not be the same pair that toppled Naomi back in the day, but the woman behind the torturous pair of shoes is the same: Dame Vivienne Westwood. Why does Viv detest our feet so? And why do we keep loving it? Click through for more of the dominatrix-y spread---Miss Moss may be working it, but the star of the show is definitely those shoes.

Ridin' the Murcielago

Hip-hop artist T-Pain crooned to millions around the world about "ridin' the Murcielago." And now, permit-toting teens can learn about the luxury car too with a mini Swarovski-excrusted version of the Lamborghini, created by Maisto. This takes model cars to a whole new level, featuring an exact replica of the Lamborghini Murciélago LP640 bejeweled with more than 7,000 Swarovski crystals. Recommended for ages 14 and over, we foresee this being a decorative play-toy for the office more than a model car the kids will play with. Zoom zoom. THE DETAILS: $2,338, www.harrods.com

Ready, set, shop: Derek Lam's Fall 2010 collection is now available at dereklam.com. The Western-inspired collection---you didn't know you needed a black cowboy hat until now, did you?---was shot by Sølve Sundsbø under creative director Doug Lloyd and fronted by Maryna Linchuk. (The Belarusian beauty may be more familiar with Minsk than the old west, but we think she pulls off country with aplomb, n'est-ce pas?) Want to hear Lam talk about his love for John Wayne and Clint Eastwood---and see Linchuk frolic around in her leathers? The brand has also launched a behind the scenes video of the campaign, which you can peruse here.
