February 26, 2017
Name: Coco & Breezy
Title: Entrepreneurs, Musicians + DJs
Coco & Breezy are twin sisters, and together they co-founded the Coco and Breezy eyewear company in 2009. Their brand is influenced by music, art and fashion. and they view their brand as an opportunity for cultural innovation, collaboration and as a driver of conversation.
Music is a big part of their lives, and DJ-ing provides the sisters a platform for this type of expression. Coco & Breezy are thrilled to be bringing their sounds to the Open Market Indoor Block Party + Fundraiser on March 9!
What do you love about Meatpacking?
The Meatpacking is a staple in our collective memory starting from when we first moved to NYC. We moved out here in 2009 and used to attend a lot of events. We met a large portion of our base network of people during our days of going out and above in Meatpacking.
If you had 15 minutes, how would you spend it in the neighborhood?
Honestly, if we have 15 mins or a few hours we always love going to the High Line. During the winter days or summer night, that is our go-to place to chill, hang out and people watch.
What should we expect from you, music-wise, at Open Market?
We are going to take everyone on a journey while mixing different genres of music. We are going to bring a lot of high energy vibes with our music and music choices. Be prepared to dance while you eat and shop, you won’t be able to help it!
Working any cool projects that you want to share with us?
We currently have eyewear collaboration collections with Jolly Rancher and Twizzlers that is available in stores and online. Recnetly, we launched our CB by Coco and Breezy line with Six02, which is our lower price point collection and we just collaborated with Urbanista on headphones, which of course we will be wearing at Open Market during our set. Coming up, we are excited to launch our optical collection soon – you’d be surprised how many people have never had their eyes checked and we want to change that! Lastly, our company will also be looking to grow our direct-to-consumer experience.
Outside of your music, what are you into, how do you spend free time?
We really love cooking. It’s always a fun form of expression to find new ways of making clean, healthy and vegetarian dishes. It makes us feel good when we cook for other people and see them enjoy our food.
