Glimpsed through a pair of KBL eyeglasses are the first signs of spring - wanderlust, outdoor games, and garden party intrigue: 

Tugging on a Ferragamo scarf in surprise, the player moves geometric Bakelite earrings in the park, the backgammon pieces none other than Chanel pearl-encircled & Hermes navy leather clip ons. 

Further into the park stands a sun worshiper. Poised with tennis racket in mid-serve, Prism cat eye sunglasses shield the player from the real opponent - opulent rays.

Hermes, no fashion dilettante, crafts a trench coat to suit tortoise framed spectacles, a fit compliment for an angular face.

Delirious with spring fever, it becomes a brief fantasy to move into an Upper East Side apartment overlooking the melting Central Park ice skating rink. 

But then, when would one run in metallic flats to a garden party across a Soho tennis court?
