CBInterview1Where are you from?
We grew up in the suburbs of Minneapolis, Minnesota, but have lived in New York for the last 4 years.

What brought you to New York?
Growing up we always had a dream to move to NYC, and we did it. We quit our jobs, sold our car, and moved to NYC with nothing but faith, passion, and an idea to start an eyewear company.  The fast-paced, inspiring big city is what brought us to New York. There’s no better place to live your all-American dream.

Who are your favorite designers?
Coco: Jean Charles de Castlebajac & Linda Farrow
Breezy: Alexander Wang

Whose style do you admire?
We aren’t just saying this because they are twins…but Mary-Kate and Ashley! We love their fashion sense and how they carry themselves.

Career highlight (so far):
Coco: When we travel out of the country, we’ve seen people walking around in our sunglasses! It’s one thing seeing someone in our state but traveling overseas and seeing people wearing our product was the best feeling!
Breezy: When we first started our eyewear company, within one month we had already had celebrities Kelly Osbourne, Ashanti and Nicki Minaj wearing our sunglasses. CBInterview2My sister C: is my best friend // B: completes me
