Looks like Drake is not the only thing that Canada gave to hip-hop.
The days of iced out custom chains in rap music seem to have reached their height with Lil Jon and plateaued with Kanye West. Now the real concentration is on the acquisition of vintage one-of-a-kind designer pieces from high-end brands such as Versace, Gucci, Hermes and Chanel.
Montreal is the one stop shop for all the aforementioned with The Vintage Frames Company, the world’s leading purveyors of ‘Vintage Sunglasses and Vintage Chains.’
The company is headed by a man with immutable style named Corey Shapiro, who has draped everyone from Rihanna to Rick Ross, 2 Chainz, Ryan Leslie and most recently, Chris Brown on the cover of XXL, in vintage jewels.
Take a look at the behind the scenes video of the official vintage jeweler to hip-hop in the video below, and the next time you hear 2 Chainz rap about his four bracelets, Corey Shapiro and Vintage Chains should be the first two names that come to mind!
