Chrome Hearts was founded in 1988 by Richard Stark and John Bowman and produces their products in Hollywood, Los Angeles. They’re known for their accessories, jewellery and clothing, particularly their logo hoodies. Chrome Hearts began in a small garage in Los Angeles selling leather jackets, inspired by Stark and Bowman’s love of motorbikes. In 1996, Chrome Hearts opened its first boutique in Manhattan. The brand has collaborated with Yves Saint Laurent, The Rolling Stones and Comme des Garcons to create exclusive ranges of products.
