- INTRODUCING: Clu
- WHO: Korean duo Seung Lee and Jin Lee have shaken up the basic tee
- CELEB FANS: Keira Knightley, Reese Witherspoon, Jennifer Garner and more
They met in their native Korea and moved to L.A. “to reinvent the ordinary tee,” says Jin Lee of his and business partner Seung Lee’s (no relation) decision to start Clu in 2004. Stars like Jessica Simpson, Mandy Moore, Natalie Portman and ordinary citizens are snapping up their ultrasoft tops that are, says Jin, “sophisticated and feminine,” with a bit of “creative edginess.” Already, Clu has become a Hollywood fave. Seung, while grateful for the attention, is “not too familiar with the celebs here, so I have to ask Jin who they are!”
