If you were out and about in NYC around Summer 07, you probably started seeing these two young fashionistas twins. They had a different look going on and what stood out were their lego accessories they wore along with bow tie, button down, shorts and high socks–not what you picture when you think of 20 year old kids from Staten Island back then. The ‘Twins’ big break came when their Lego belt buckle made it into a Marc Jacobs show. After that they became downtown staples dubbed The Fashion Twins. Pretty soon after that, their lego heart-shaped brooches, belt buckles and cigarettes were selling at Colette in Paris, Kid Robot in NY and being sported by Kanye West, Beyonce, MIA and of course Okayplayer founder ?uestlove.
