An iconic, family-owned brand. A status symbol. A fleeting trend. Whatever you personally consider Chrome Hearts, there is no denying how much momentum is behind the Los Angeles-based operation in recent years.
What you may not realize is, Chrome Hearts is far from a newcomer to the fashion world. The brand has been crafting silver accessories and premium leather goods since the '80s. It’s picked up its fair share of fans along the way, too—Rick Owens, Rei Kawakubo, Virgil Abloh, and Nigo to name a few. And that's just in the style realm. These days, Chrome Hearts is on the radar of countless individuals, whether it’s being rapped about by Lil Uzi Vert or worn in the tunnel by young NBA stars like Shai Gilgeous-Alexander.
But like we said, Chrome Hearts didn't sprout up from out of nowhere. The brand has CFDA awards. It’s been outfitting legendary musicians, designers, athletes, and more for over 30 years. So, we wanted to offer a look at notable supporters of the brand from across its lengthy history, some more obscure than others. Take a look at the Chrome Hearts fits from over the years that we decided to highlight, below.
