Not the most usual story out there: Identical twin sisters with a penchant for Michael Jackson hightail it out of Minneapolis and make for New York, where their handmade, studded eyewear makes fans of bling-loving celebs from Ashanti to Kelly Osbourne. Not the most usual story, but 20-year-old twins Coco and Breezy aren’t the most usual girls out there, either—according to their bio, they were “originally constructed on a planet called Earth.” Usual or not, it was on said planet that the duo caught the eye of Selima Salaun, who invited the sisters to customize 20 pieces for her shops. (The collab-loving Salaun has already worked with J.Crew, Proenza Schouler, Tim Hamilton, and more.) The result is a heavy-metal spin on Selima’s best-selling Onassis frame, inspired by the Greek tycoon Aristotle Onassis and his trademark specs. (We think he’d be into the tricked-out version—there was a man who could appreciate a generous hand with gold.) Twenty unique pairs are available now at Selima Optique stores now, provided you get there before Ashanti’s stylist does.
