Twinning in the Eyewear World
Twin sisters Corianna and Brianna stepped into the eyewear game in 2009 and became an instant hit. From humble beginnings in Minnesota to fashion shows and runways in Paris, Coco and Breezy have embedded themselves in both the fashion and entertainment worlds.
They designed (the late) Prince's iconic Third Eye Sunglasses
Prince shared his hometown of Minnesota with Coco and Breezy, and wanted to work with the duo for some time before finally sitting down and collaborating on a design. His request? "I would love for you guys to make us some glasses with three lenses. Can you have them ASAP?" The shades were first featured on SNL, and with that, Coco and Breezy became a demand in the eyewear fashion industry.
They are DJs, dancers, designers, and artists
In addition to designing for Prince, they also danced on stage for one of his performances. Their love for music extends into other pastimes as well, and we personally had the pleasure of seeing them in action during Vision Expo West's 2017 exhibition. They've also joined line ups with artists such as Travi$ Scott and 2 Chainz.
They began designing glasses out of necessity
While they didn't have the most traditional childhood, wearing sunglasses at a young age helped give them the confidence they now exude so effortlessly. Handmade in their bedrooms first in Minnesota then in New York, they wore them proudly in public, but it wasn't until they were offered money from passersby for the shades right off the twins' face that Coco and Breezy entertained the idea of starting their own brand at just 19 years of age.
