The story is about Beth, a young woman chess prodigy portrayed by Anya Taylor-Joy, whose journey takes her across the world, overcoming stereotypes and, along the way, wearing the most amazing statement clothing – to such an extent that other characters comment on her ever-evolving wardrobe. Watching the series was stunning. Anya is perfect in every moment and the pieces she wears are, well, unbelievably amazing. The coats, cardigans, earth colours, the greens, dresses, accessories, everything is classy and so chic, a really nice fashion moment that we will remember for a long time.
Looking to designers like Pierre Cardin, style icons like Françoise Hardy, and the distinctive silhouettes of Andy Warhol’s ‘60s ‘The Factory’ – especially Edie Sedgwick, Gabriele Binder, the Costume Designer of Netflix’s The Queen’s Gambit, has incorporated current trends in a stylized manner. All costumes, barring the final coat, were created from Gabriele’s vision in her workshop for The Queen’s Gambit.
The vision of Gabriele Binder is such that The Brooklyn Museum has included it an upcoming exhibit. The exhibit which can be viewed virtually, will showcase memorable looks from the Netflix Limited Series, The Queen’s Gambit and the upcoming Season 4 of The Crown with related items from Brooklyn Museum’s permanent collection.
Anya is like a Japanese anime character made real; her beauty is otherworldly and has global appeal. There is no doubt she’s going to be a massive star. And her bold sense of style is ever more eye-catching than her fictional alter ego.
