A recent interview over at The Brilliance features the trendsetting brotherly duo of Dee & Ricky. Known for their penchant for Lego-based broaches and belts among other items, the twins offer some quick-fire candid answers to some casual questions. Some of the most memorable answers include how the Lego movement came about and their latest addition to their living room.
TB! > Last thing you bought purely for styling your living room?
D! > Didn’t buy anything, I stole one of those Andre x Belvedere portraits from the Bowery hotel when they had that huge party, On another note, where can I get a bottle of that stuff? That stuff was tasty had me sitting silly.
TB! > Let’s talk about the LEGO accessory takeover. More importantly tell us about when the light bulb went off in your head.
