Describe yourself in 3 words?

Diverse, Inquisitive, Thoughtful

What does jewellery mean to you?

To us, it's a timeless piece to be cherished for year's to come and when the time is right, pass it down to my family members generation after generation. It's a connection and a very symbolic way of expressing ones self.

What is the best thing about being a twin?

You can be two places at the same time, but also knowing that you will never be alone, we can share anything and everything and nothing will change.

When it comes to work, do you prefer shoots being booked together or individually?

Almost all of the shoots we've done in the past have been together because the clients are looking for that in us, in a sense it's easier to work in this field because we know that we can be at ease and be able to freely express ourselves. We've always want to be this way.

Being born & raised in LA, what’s your favourite thing about the city?

Our people, our culture, and last but definitely not the least, our food.

What started your love for the car culture & keeps that love strong to this day?

Our parents would take us to see car cruise/shows on weekends. We'd never seen anything like it before, the time & creativity that people put into their cars was like no other craftsmanship. Coming from a diverse group of people, everyone would always be outside on LA summer and it would always feel like we were one big family. It's something that people take pride in and share with the world, now this scene is globally known and people want to share what they have to showcase.

For anyone coming to visit LA, what top 3 places would you recommend to visit & why?

The beaches, the parks & local neighbourhoods. It's a way to see the lifestyle of LA natives.

Best place to eat in your area?

Honestly there's too many to choose. But if it comes down to it, Mariscos all day everyday.

What are your goals for the next 5 years?

To show our parents that this life god gave us is very different from what they were given. It's a real blessing and don't take this for granted. I would love to do a major campaign with my parents and for them to see themselves on billboards, ads, etc. That would be pretty amazing.

If you could visit any country, where would you go & why?

Definitely Japan, they know how to live a very civil life and man do they know how to open peoples point of view.

What was your favourite product from the shoot?

Definitely the bracelets!! But in all honesty we love every item.

What influences your style & how has this transformed you into who you are today?

We would say it's from where we come from and how we live. As twins we were always dressing the same, but once we found our own identities and started having our own beliefs, our style developed on it's own and we just rolled with it. That's how people identify us.
