Billionaire Boys Club is a brand that is more than continuing to hold its own in today’s fashion world. Just see its most recent tracksuit-heavy Pre-Spring 2017 collection if you have any doubts to that claim. But it had to start somewhere, and co-founders Pharrell and NIGO have shared this story on the latest episode of Pharrell’s Beats 1 radio show.

For the latest episode of OTHERtone, Pharrell took things all the way to Tokyo for a sit-down interview with NIGO. It was during this conversation that they revealed the basis of their friendship came courtesy of the BAPE designer’s low-key obsession with Pharrell’s style, leading them to meet in their mutual jeweler’s store.

Watch them discuss their first meeting in the clip below, or head to Apple Music to watch the full episode.
