Vice's video channel VBS TV just debuted League of Two, a new Web series about creative duos. First up: Andy Spade and Anthony Sperduti, the team behind design agency Partners & Spade, which operates out of a strange and wonderful Noho boutique. (Early in the clip, Spade says he knew he was on the right track with the shop when a customer said "I really love your store. It's a store, isn't it?")

After the jump, watch Spade and Sperduti explain their friendship and their design aesthetic, which often seem to be based on the same thing: A shared love of pranks. The clip suggests yet again that nobody in the fashion or design world is ever having quite as much fun as these guys.
