Style Spotted: Fashion Twins of CBS
From being featured in EUROMAN to turning heads at Dalgas Have, twins Noel and Samuel Aiwerioghene, definitely know how to bring their A-game when it comes to being fashion forward. Often referred to as ‘The Fashion Twins of CBS’, they are renowned for their enviably impressive Instagram page and their own clothing brand – AKINS. So naturally, we had to know more.
1. Who or what is your main source of inspiration?
We have many sources of inspiration, but we get inspired the most when we are out travelling. It is great to see things that you don’t get to see on an everyday basis, because it helps develop a new outlook on life and to become inspired by what you perceive . When we are out travelling we love to just sit at a café in the city and watch people while taking in the surroundings. For us, that is the best way to get a feel for the city.
2. Have you always had this interest for fashion?
We have not always been interested in fashion – our passion for clothes only really started a few years back. We have always loved to mix clothes and accessories in order to create interesting and different outfits. We don’t think it was the idea of fashion that we loved back then, but we have always loved clothes. Our interest for fashion really sparked back when we lived in London. The city opened our eyes. In London people explore more with their style. Being surrounded by people experimenting their own looks inspired us to work with our own, and that has definitely contributed to our creativity today. Besides that, we were involved with London Fashion week, where we got in contact with people from the fashion industry – Having that network really geared up our interest.
3. How would you describe your style?
Our style can be described as a combination of modern and classic gentleman. Additionally, we are inspired by the stylish and more simplistic Scandinavian approach to fashion.
4. You’ve just started a brand called AKINS… Tell us a bit about the brand?
AKINS is a Danish fashion brand we created. For a long time we’ve had a dream about starting something of our own. A few months ago this finally became a reality. At present our portfolio consists of handmade hats in Copenhagen with our focus being placed on producing high quality goods and excellent craftsmanship. In the near future, we plan to expand the collection, which will then include a wide collection of both men’s and women’s wear.
5. What are you favorite places to hang around in Copenhagen?
There are a lot of nice places to hang out during the summer in Copenhagen, but we especially enjoy going to Papirøen (Paper Island) on Sundays. There is a street food market that offers a great variety of different foods, and the atmosphere there is great.
