Clu is derived from the French word "clou," which means nail - a simple and graphic object, a concept symbolic of the line itself. The Clu t-shirt is elaborately constructed, tissue-thin and unbelievably soft. Design partners, Seung Lee and Jin Lee, founded the collection in 2004. The two are not related but share a common thread and friendship that began while working at a fashion house in Korea where they were both born and raised. The two joined creative forces and moved to Los Angeles combining their vision and unique talents to start their own collection that was rich and poetic. Clu is couture for the t-shirt.
