It's hard to believe BFFs Renata Wright (the singer-songwriter known as Dragun) and Idris Weekly (the recording artist who goes by the name IkeZero) don't waste time planning their outfits. The roommates from Saint Louis say coordinating is too contrived. Complementing each other is just "something that happens," Wright says. The pair's grungy-warrior look mixes camo, footwear with a metallic sheen, and an upper layer that adds a pop of primary color. Their sartorial influences are varied: the costume design of the Hunger Games films, characters from the Mortal Kombat video game series (namely Raiden and Kung Lao), Run-D.M.C., fashion from feudal Japan, and even extreme sports. How do all those things come together? Follow them on Instagram at @ikezero and @teacupdragun to find out.
