Lego as Accessories!

As a Dane I’m very proud that Lego is cool again! I’m even more excited that it has reached the height of fashion. Lego as accessories can be seen everywhere from the streets to the runways.

The guys that pioneered the lego as accessories idea and made the pieces for the Marc by Marc Jacobs runway show (as seen above) are Dee and Ricky Jackson, two 21 year old twin brothers from Staten Island, New York. Their lego accessories have been worn by stars such as M.I.A., Rihanna and Kanye West. They even made that flashing heart badge that Kanye wore in his performance at the MTV Awards last year. I’m very excited for these guys, I see big things ahead for them.

I love their downtown hip-hop style! If you’re gonna do, do it well!

Lego as accessories definitely has massive crossover potential into shoes, see Balenciaga’s lego shoes below.

But I think there is less crossover potential for Lego into food…

Lego sushi anyone?

Looks like I’m going to take my old Lego kit out storage and go a little crazy with the superglue! Thanks for the inspiration Dee and Ricky. You can check out their website here.
