About the designer
Family-run operation Chrome Hearts was established in 1988 by Richard Stark, whose search for the perfect biker jacket led him to create one himself. Starting out from a garage in Los Angeles, the motorbike enthusiast crafted leather jackets and trousers with the help of his friend John Bowman. Laurie Lynn Stark started off being one of the label’s first customers, ordering a range of leather swimsuits, and ended up being Richard’s partner in both business and life.
It wasn’t until 2002 that the label expanded its clothing and accessories range with a bespoke eyewear collection. A sense of rebellious freshness was fused with unrivalled craftsmanship, leading to pristine opticals. As a favourite to many celebrities, the laser-engraved pairs are constructed from meticulous metals and exotic materials, often finished with sterling silver detailing that is own to the label’s ultra-luxe DNA.
