Native Sons' "Producers" collection：
Siegel/ Lansky/ Hughes
火鶴飯店(Flamingo Las Vegas)是拉斯維加斯第一間五星級旅館，由芝加哥黑手黨大老巴格斯席格爾(Bugsy Siegel)及合夥人梅爾蘭斯基(Meyer Lansky) 共同創立，而他們正是讓內華達這個鳥不生蛋的沙漠地帶蛻變為奢華賭城的重要推手，卻也壟斷所有金流及資源。直到1960 年代末，億萬富翁豪爾修斯(Howard Hughes)買下大部分拉斯維加斯的旅館及電視台的所有權，間接促成賭場合法化運動之後，拉斯維加斯才真正從黑道勢力間解放。
Native Sons“Producers”系列以Siegel, Lansky以及Hughes三款複合材質鏡框帶出拉斯維加斯華麗外貌之外的真實故事，運用質感紮實、顏色醇厚的Takiron醋酸纖維板料及高質感鈦金屬手工打磨製成，大器而簡約的框型更是魅力所在之處。
Las Vegas, the city which became so famous for its connection to crime figures was actually a small town in the middle of nowhere with only a few gas stations before 1940s. It was until mafia Meyer Lansky and Bugsy Siegel found out the potential of Las Vegas and launched “The Flamingos”- the first mob-influenced casino resort of Las Vegas that it earned the title of Sin City, but also became a mafia’s subsidiary with illegal money poured in. The falls of the Mafia was in the 1960s, when reclusive billionaire business magnate and aviator Howard Hughes, managed to finagle a change in Nevada law that forbade corporations to buy interests in hotels, casinos and resorts to make Las Vegas free from the mob again.
Native Sons Eyewear’s “Lansky”, “Siegel”, and “Hughes”, was inspired by the dynamic history of Las Vegas. The combination of Takiron acetate and lightweight titanium metal brought out a vivid, contrasting look, which ensures a daring yet practical style.
