How to Buy Rare and Authentic Chrome Hearts

What is Chrome Hearts?

Chrome Hearts was established in 1988 as the brainchild of Richard Stark. Stark made a living selling leather goods but felt unsatisfied by the biker fashion at the time. He then met John Bowman, who had experience in leather production, and Leonard Kamhaut, who could make jewelry. The trio formed a business and started creating and selling biker fashion.

They first had their big break when they received work creating costumes for the movie “Chopper Chicks in Zombietown” and word about the brand soon spread. The brand’s name Chrome Hearts was taken from the original working title of the movie. Since then, Chrome Hearts has gone on to win fashion awards and has expanded into making caps, eyewear, furniture, and much more, and has gained high profile celebrity fans such as Rihanna.
