Hartford's F/W 2013 line is inspired by, "the 1940’s. The collection mixes rich materials with sportswear that is strongly influenced by a unique blend of military and preppy."


Designer Yves Chareton began with a vision to recreate the 40’s and 50’s vintage shirts like the ones he found in flea markets in Porte de Clignancourt in Paris in the late 60’s-­ubiquitous button­downs in faded plaids or bright oxford, westerns in raw denim and work shirts in chambray.  In 2000, persuaded by customers and press, Yves created his own universe by launching full collections, which all shared the same philosophy upon which Hartford was built - reinventing traditional fashion into something modern and stylish. Today, the Hartford label is synonymous with quality fabrics, rich colors, and above all, with authenticity.
