Clu is a Los Angeles based brand founded in 2004. The name is derived from the French word clou which means nail, a simple and graphic object. Its concept began with a reinterpretation of the t-shirt, a symbol of the American style that represents freedom and youth. Clu offers soft, sculptural, often reconstructed looks with everyday versatility and timeless chic. It is currently sold in over 200 prestigious stores worldwide. Most recently Clu was honored as the 2010 recipient of the Samsung Fashion and Design Fund.
