Hi Everybody,

Seen this cute interview of Chess World No. 1 Magnus Carlsen with Teen Vogue?

Carlsen says he loves casual clothing and G-Star has designed special items just for him so that he feels comfortable while playing chess.

Carlsen also says he loves Real Madrid, playing computer games and hanging around with friends. He says he loves chess because it's the "ultimate intellectual sport, a fighting game from which you never get bored".

Now, who wouldn't support that statement!

As regards his fashion world experience, Carlsen says he never thought about it till he was approached by G-Star.

He also said that he loved the red carpet experience at the New York Fashion Week. How cool.

Just in case you missed our post on how Carlsen beat the world in the G-Star RAW chess challenge, here is the link.
