Achievement

2019 has been yet another successful year for power couple Richard and Laurie Lynn Stark, the co-founders of the highly coveted brand Chrome Hearts. Aside from two exceptional eyewear collections for SS19 and FW19, the label famously designed a collection of branded gym equipment for New York Fashion Week as well as an Art Basel-exclusive capsule. Its pop-up store became the residency for Virgil Abloh’s Louis Vuitton SS19 collection, offering exclusive Off-White™ x Chrome Hearts items. Rounding the year off was the brand’s collaboration with Maxfield LA for the latter’s 50th anniversary celebration, resulting in the creation of the notorious toilet plunger.
