9. Crooks & Castles
This powerhouse label has drilled a no-holds-barred business and design affront on the entire industry since its inception in 2002. They came out swinging at the onset of the all-over-print craze with their "Chains" hoodies and Medusa tees and never relented, digging in deeper with their cut-n-sew, and twisting the knife when it came to footwear. Their marble-laden retail fronts heighten the expensive taste of the brand, further complemented by embellished accessories, top-grade materials, and fashion-forward design. Can't Stop the Crooks.
