Laurent and Larry Nicolas Bourgeois, professionally known as Les Twins, are French dancers, producers, models, and designers. 

 

Often referred to by their respective nicknames, “Lil Beast” and “Ca Blaze”, they are recognized internationally for their talent in new style hip-hop dancing. 

The Twins partnered with Hennessy to showcase the unique creation of Hennessy with the use of dance.

Over the course of a three-day virtual reality tour, Guardian were proud guests of Maison Hennessy and also gained insight on how Les Twins have worked together over the years. 

Les Twins had a chat with the Guardian Life team over Zoom, and here’s what they said regarding the collaboration.

Tell us a bit more about your creative process and what inspires your choreography?

It’s not choreography, it’s freestyle. We feel the music, and translate this into our dance moves. We think of our moves on the spot because it is all in the moment for us. In fact if we were to try them again now, it would be different.

What are some of the values you believe you share with Hennessy?

We believe that just like Hennessy, we are the best at what we do. A brand like Hennessy wants creativity, passion, spirit, and values that we also have. We have worked with many brands in the past, but Hennessy stands out for us in terms of this, it was an easy choice to work with them because of this.

What does Hennessy Very Special mean to you?

Hennessy is a premium lifestyle. Hennessy is Very Special, this collaboration is Very Special, Les Twins is Very Special.

You produced an original piece of music for this collaboration. Tell us why, and what the inspiration was behind it.

We had to do an original piece for Hennessy, it’s Hennessy. What we did was inspired by perfect movement. It takes you out of your comfort zone. The song is like a little movie; it is like a motivation, and we made it specially for this project.

Talk us through your personal dance styles, and what inspired the fashion capsule you came up with for this collaboration.

We both have quite different styles. Larry is more like fire, and me like water, but matched into one capsule. The history of Hennessy inspired us, and the style of the bottle was also important for us. My brother and I are not the same, but we match together perfectly; and that is also what Hennessy is, a mix of fire, coal, water and other ingredients matching together to become what it is.

The Hennessy V.S 2021 Limited Edition by Les Twins is now available in leading stores nationwide.
