Who are the ATL Twins?
Earlier in the week when we cogitated about Cara and her onesies, we wondered if she was zipping up into the flesh of the ATL twins. You may have noticed these identical twins infiltrating your Instagram feed this Fashion Week clad in matching outfits, bizzare hairdos and sets of gold teeth, or you may not. So the first question on today’s agenda should be: Who are they??
And why are they casually hanging with Justin Bieber? Why are they flashing their matching teeth alongside A$AP Rocky? With Rihanna at the Opening Ceremony show? James Franco? (Though Franco makes a bit of sense, because they played identical twin drug dealers in Harmony Korine’s Spring Breakers which could account for why they appear familiar.)
The twosome gained traction in 2011 after an interview with Vice went viral which reveals the nitty-gritty of their eccentric lifestyle.
Their names are Sidney and Thurman Sewell. They party HARD and share everything, and by everything I mean a a high rise in Atlanta, a Range Rover, a bed, a cellphone, and allegedly all women they sleep with. The longest they have been apart for is 6 hours when one of them went to jail for a DUI, and they claim to be “one person in two different bodies.” They are pretty much the closest thing to siamese twins without being literally conjoined.
Oh. And they have matching day jobs as paralegals and wear suits and kind of resemble Will Arnett.
Weird? Yep. But Fashion loves a bizarre freaky weirdo, or two for that matter.
They have a few collaborations in the pipeline, some with brands and a new project with Harmony Korrine for HBO. What do you think is next? Do they have any place in fashion? Are you intrigued? Fascinated? Repulsed? TELL US.
