Chucho's motto Esta marca es para ti (This brand is for you) tells the story. It was created by Mexico City native Molly Robbins, along with its 'sister brand, Palomita , to embody the essence of the Latino lifestyle while providing a platform for individual style. She has secured exclusive rights to use trademarks and vintage art from an array of Latino companies, including tire manufacturers, cement companies, beverages, confections, and iconic characters and artistically incorporates them into the Chucho brand. By featuring designs that highlight these popular Hispanic images, Robbins hopes to create a brand that balances a modern and fresh look with the nostaligia of Latino pride. The Chucho lifestyle is about the young man who enjoys casual clothing and lives with an adventurous spirit.
