Shoes, earrings, sunglasses: In fashion, the best things come in pairs. Not convinced? Meet CoCo and Breezy, the identical twins setting their sights on eyewear immortality.
Growing up as outsiders in a Minnesota suburb, they began designing sunglasses out of necessity – not to block the scant Midwestern sun, but the gaze of small-town haters. They’ve since taken their talents to Brooklyn, graduating from Myspace renown to Instagram stardom along the way. With shades adorned by Beyond, Rihanna, and Nicki Minaj, it’s safe to say they traded up.
The two sisters, whose real names are Corianna and Brianna, do everything together, so when we interviewed them, it was only natural that they spoke as one.
