Initially introduced in Japan in 2002, Crooks Castles relaunched domestically in the U.S. once designer Dennis Calvero decided to relocate to New York from California. Crooks & Castles was created to reveal the lifestyles and the modes of operation of the robber barons...for example the Vanderbilts, Rockerfellers, Carnegies and the modern day billionaires like Bill Gates. The concept was easy. "Crooks", criminals, pimps, hustlers, and thieves, and "Castles" the goal. Aesthetically, C&C is no stranger to taking (stealing) familiar icons and giving them their own twist. Often times taking high fashion most sought after logos and crafting them to fit Crooks & Castles.
-Cant Stop The Crooks!
