Brand: Chrome Hearts
Season: NYFW 2019
Key Pieces: While the leather and leopard-print boxing robe is sure to turn heads in the gym, it’s the exercise bike, complete with an inbuilt crucifix, that stands out most in this extravagant gym collection.
Editor’s Notes: To celebrate New York Fashion Week, renowned Los Angeles-based jewelry label Chrome Hearts has put together a wild, workout-themed installation within its Washington Street NYC flagship. However, it’s not your average home gym situation; in fact it’s more accurately a work of art.
From small details like the Chrome Hearts monogram which appears on workout clothes, skipping ropes, and dumbbells, to boxing robes constructed from luxurious leather and silk – the installation is an exercise in opulence. The materiality of the pieces are so sumptuous that you would be hard pressed to find a gym junkie game enough to utilize the leather punching bags, or sweat on the leather workout-bench.
You can see it for yourself during New York Fashion Week at the Chrome Hearts flagship store at 755 Washington St, New York, NY.
