Kate Hudson Collaborates with Chrome Hearts
ROCK HUDSON: Kate Hudson is designing — or, rather, collaborating on — a line of jewelry for Chrome Hearts. The line, called CH + KH, is a joint effort between Hudson and her longtime friend Laurie Lynn Stark, who co-owns Chrome Hearts with her husband, Richard Stark. It’s Hudson’s first design venture and Chrome Hearts’s first time partnering with an actress (the company has worked with Rick Owens, Comme des Garçons, A Bathing Ape, Barbie and Chanel in the past), and the line is inspired by their various vacations together. The collection, which includes 18- and 22-karat gold bohemian pieces set with white diamonds, fresh water pearls and aquamarine, green tourmaline, peridot and citrine gemstones, is a one-off for now. It launches in late summer in select Chrome Hearts stores.
