It was not until 2000 that Hartford creator Yves Chareton introduced full collections of ready-to-wear to the fashion world; collections that were characterized by quality fabrics, rich colors and authenticity. Continually interested in how traditional fashion can be reinvented into something modern and stylish, Hartford became an under-the-radar label that was as hip as it was hush-hush. Offering the modern gent stylish, but never overly trend-driven pieces, the Hartford aesthetic can be best summed up as French-chic-meets-American-cool. When you're packing for a stylish break away, don't forget your Hartford beachwear. These exuberant, poolside essentials are all you'll need to cut a colorful dash in the sunshine.
