World famous mega-brand Chrome Hearts and Off-White have teamed up with READYMADE in an incredible triple name collaboration. Hosokawa created a backpack with the kind of uncompromising quality that READYMADE is known for, and the piece was customized by Richard Stark himself in Chrome Hearts signature rock n roll style. Topping the collaboration piece was Off-White designer Virgil Abloh, who did an in-store live event in which he hand-painted his brand’s trademark stripes on the backpacks straps. Created as a one-of-a-kind piece for Miami store Alchemist, this ultra-rare piece was displayed during Art Basel 2015. READYMADE and CHROME HEARTS also debuted an additional bag, with two more expected to be released shortly.
