chrome hearts online store sale

chrome hearts chrome hearts, youve heard us talk at length about our userbase. We believe that we have one of the most active communities—online or otherwise—dedicated to all walks of fashion. While we’re committed to serving our users the best the industry has to offer, we also know that our community is filled with plenty of fans and collectors who have impressive archives of their own. Such is the case for Garrett Murray. Murray, currently a student here in New York City, happens to be quietly sitting on a small stockpile of rare Chrome Hearts clothing. The Los Angeles-based brand, known mostly for its rock 'n' roll-inspired silver jewelry (with forays into gold, diamonds, eyewear, furniture and incense) also hosts a fairly formidable apparel business. While the clothing, aesthetically speaking, rarely strays from the brand’s blend of punk, biker and gothic influences, it serves as an alternative way to experience the 30-year-old label. Given that the brand has always been fashion adjacent (collaborations with Rick Owens and Comme des Garçons, along with cosigns from the likes of Virgil Abloh and Bella Hadid spring to mind) it can still feel like its own brand of gear doesn’t get the shine it so rightfully deserves. It’s fitting then, that Murray’s own stock—consisting almost exclusively of T-shirts—show the brand’s ability to turn the relatively simple cotton canvas into an outlet that’s just as relevant to the larger Chrome Hearts story. Read our conversation with Murray below, and shop his archive of rare Chrome Hearts tees and more. Tell us a little about yourself. Where are you from, and where are you living now? What are you doing here in NYC? I was born and raised in Miami, FL. I was living in Tallahassee for the past year-and-a-half studying at Florida State University. I was getting really bored of the way things were there and felt like I needed to be in an environment that was more creatively stimulating. I moved to East Village about three months ago and started studying at FIT. Why FIT? What do you study and why? I did a summer program a while back and felt like it was the right fit. Right now, I’m studying business management. Eventually I’m going to have a business of my own and I think it’s essential to understand how a business works. I considered studying fashion design but I feel like a lot of that can be picked up as you go. So let’s get down to business. What’s your connection to Chrome Hearts? Why are you into the brand? My family has really played a role in my interest in fashion. Going back four generations, I’ve been exposed to many aspects of the industry at a young age. My brother was given the dagger pendant for his birthday when he was 13, I was about 11. That was my earliest memory of learning about the brand. Over the years, as I became more interested in fashion I started to learn more about its history. I think they have developed a very strong image and managed to blend elegance with that biker-rockstar aesthetic. That’s what really has set it apart in my opinion. Chrome Hearts is a jewelry brand first and foremost, but they obviously do apparel as well. In your opinion, how are the two connected; what about the aesthetics of the jewelry crosses over to influence the graphics on the clothing? It’s pretty clear to see the influence the jewelry plays into it clothing. Much of the graphics are jewelry designs first and then translated into a graphic form that parallels with their image and aesthetic. The chrome hearts lettering and font are also a big part of its clothing. Your collection here is clearly clothing-centric. Do you also collect Chrome Hearts jewelry? If so, which collection is more robust? If no, then what’s held you back from collecting the jewelry? I have a few pieces of its jewelry. I like having diversity with my clothing and jewelry, so I try not to oversaturate with just Chrome Hearts. Also, the majority of the Chrome Hearts clothing I have collected over the years is not my size so I really only have a few of its clothing pieces in my personal wardrobe. Big names like Virgil Abloh and Bella Hadid have been wearing and working with Chrome Hearts as of late, exposing it to a wider audience. Do you think this is a positive thing? Why or why not? I think it’s definitely a positive thing. The pace as to which things come and go is as fast as it’s ever been and staying relevant is vital to many brands that have been around for a good amount of time. Collaborating with Virgil and Bella has definitely exposed the brand to a wider audience. It’s managed to evolve with the times while staying true to its identity and image which is a struggle for many brands right now. There’s a few rare pieces you’ve managed to acquire for this sale. How did you find these garments—any interesting “digging” stories from the hunt? I won’t go into much detail but I have been lucky enough to build relationships with people who have collected Chrome Hearts for years. A couple pieces I managed to find on Craigslist and eBay. A few family friends are close with people that are very connected to the Chrome Hearts company. So, for the most part, that is how I acquired the majority of these pieces. Not to ask the obvious, but out of curiosity, what prompted you to sell your robust collection of Chrome Hearts clothing here on Grailed? I think Grailed was the perfect platform to release this collection. I really think what you all are doing has changed the way we shop for highly sought-after, archive pieces. You’ve built a community and culture with great content and understand the impact of social media and how that has affected the way we shop for clothes. Is there a piece from Chrome Hearts (jewelry or clothing) that you’re currently on the lookout for? For me, there isn’t really a specific piece of jewelry or clothing I’m on the lookout for. Recently, I’ve been shown some of the brand’s vintage furniture. A lot of it is pretty rare to find on the open market, so I’m being patient and waiting for the right piece to come up for the right price. If you had to pick, what are the three most impressive, interesting and/or valuable pieces you’ve included in this sale? I would have to say the Maxfield collab tee, the Bape collab, and the short sleeve purple/gold colorway tee. I have never seen that color for sale. Also, the neon green Hong Kong Prince’s Building is a pretty rare piece. I have seen it for sale in a few basic colors like white, black and grey, but never in that neon green. What’s on the horizon for you, both as a fashion collector and in your personal pursuits? Well, part of the reason I’m doing this drop is to invest in one of my personal projects that I’m working on. I’m in the early stages of planning out some ideas for a concept I’ve had for about a year now. It’s called ALWAYS 4AM. It’s gonna be a creative content company centered around many different aspects of the culture, from music to art/design, as well as fashion. I really think they all influence each other so I want to integrate all aspects into the brand and really create an image that people find new and fresh, not something that everyone has seen before.
