Tommy O’Gora and Shinsuke Takizawa had already enjoyed success before creating the label Native Sons. O’Gora was at the origins of Dita, which produces eyewear under its own name and also for labels such as Thom Browne, and Takizawa started the brand Neighborhood. Their handmade glasses are inspired by well-known designs, revisited with an original twist. Exclusively at colette.
