Bricks & Pieces - 'Pop Art Lego Fashion'

This is absolutely nuts - Ricky and Dee Jackson, known as The Twins, have become big names having set a trend by designing "boutique accessories made out of lego blocks". These include hand made belt buckles and brooches that go for around $50+ and have been worn by the likes of Kanye West, Rihanna and Marc Jacobs fashion models.

These crazy kids seem to be doing pretty well, selling wholesale orders to boutiques within the US and Europe. Since their innovative Lego 'inventions' they have moved on to high price, branded Starter Jackets - duffle bags, made out of jackets and a pair of straps:

The Twins are apparently developing Tyvek shirts and ties as well as bullet proof duffle bags, which are simply prerequisite to a trendy lifestyle.

Here are The Twins in person:

It's very odd, and that's a good thing.
