Visiting RVS Eyewear in Instanbul

Both Jasmin and I have a special love for RVS eyewear. Avant-garde design and amazing colour combinations at its best. In addition, all colour combinations are unique. Forget about mass production and boring product catalogues, from RSV you get a truly unique piece of art.

Visiting Vidal’s studio/showroom

I had the chance to meet Vidal, the founder and creative soul behind RVS eyewear. Vidal, who was born in New York but moved back to Istanbul together with his parents when he was a kid, is now based in Istanbul from where he runs his business. He invited me to his studio/showroom in the heart of the city to show me some of the novelties.

It all started with vintage frames

Vidal started off selling vintage eyewear. It wasn’t until years later he decided to create his own collection, which started with a few show pieces made out of left over acetate that he managed to get manufactured. When the pieces were done, Vidal asked Selima in New York to showcase his collection in the store, on a “sell or return” agreement. Luckily for Vidal the Selima shop turned out to be the perfect place for his collection – it sold out, which made it possible for him to continue his creative work.

Metal frames from RVS

Latest from RVS eyewear is the new metal collection, containing thinner frames but with the same playful shapes and colours as we’ve seen on his acetate collections before. Two fabulous shades featured below.

Keep up the good job, Vidal!
