Dee & Ricky, ‘Velcro Teddy Bear’, 2015, CMA: Benefit Auction 2017

Dee & Ricky
Twin brothers Dee & Ricky learned how to sew from their grandmother at age 15, and have been creating streetwear-inspired sewn and embroidered works ever since. Playful and nostalgic, their pop art accessories and clothing riff off, and invert, recognizable icons and images from visual culture, such as legos, dominos, and chess sets. Dee & Ricky's designs have been worn by Questlove, Kanye West, Rihanna, Beyoncé Knowles, and Kid Cudi. They have pursued collaborations with brands such as Joy Rich, Casio (G-Shock), Marc Jacobs, Converse, and Pony.
