Clerestory embodies the need for versatility, form & function – the collection is designed for wherever everyday life may take you.

Based on the need for shorts that suit a multi-faceted lifestyle, a market often overlooked by the increasingly sports-tech focus of surf and streetwear (more about function than fit), the collection approaches an appetite for movement, mixed with our passion for the worlds of art, food, fashion and design.

Aligning with former Stüssy head designer, Nick Bower, Clerestory stands behind a collection of shorts that suit our love for living life to the fullest (from surfing + cycling to hiking + motorbike riding).

Behind the brand are founders James & Arabella; James is an Australian-born fashion photographer, and Arabella is a graphic designer from London, both sharing a love for art, fashion, design, and travel.

We hope you enjoy the shorts as much as we do.
