If you’re a fan of classic early aughts Disney shows, Riverdale, or mead, you’re probably familiar with the Sprouse twins, Cole and Dylan. The two played the devious Martin twins on Disney’s The Suite Life of Zack and Cody and since then have always seemed to be somewhere in pop culture, but separately. Now, J Brand is bringing them back together (for the public, anyways).
They’re combining their non-acting talents for J Brand’s spring campaign. Dylan has become a model and Cole’s now a photographer who not only takes photos of people trying to surreptitiously take photos of him (check out @camera_duels) but also has editorials for Elle and Vogue. Dylan told the Cut that working with Cole came naturally as they’re “pretty synced up by now.”
“I’ve been watching Cole do photography since he was really discovering his style so I was amazed after all this time to discover that he’s very professional and put together on a shoot (despite doing the cartoon photographer yes darling bullshit),” Dylan said.
The resulting editorial, which launched today, has a classic Americana vibe — a bit James Dean and a bit John Wayne. The women’s clothes are inspired by “1970s Sissy Spacek meets the villain in 1999’s cult film Cruel Intentions,” according to the brand. That translates to monochrome looks in white, black, and baby blue, plus Canadian tuxedos for all genders.
If you just can’t get enough of the twins, don’t fret. Cole is still on Riverdale (heard of it?) and Dylan has four, yes, four, movies coming up. In the mean time, see the editorial below.
