The inspiration behind French brand Hartford was born in New York City in 1979. Yves Chareton landed there with the idea of recreating vintage shirts from the 50s similar to ones he could find in a Parisian flea market back in the day. The brand was an instant success synonymous with quality fabrics, rich colours and authenticity. In 2000, Hartford launched a womens line sharing the same enduring philosophy on which the label was built - inspired by reinventing classic styles to become more contemporary.
