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!
I just came back to Reno from the desert and the Burning man festival – wow, what an amazing adventure! One entire week in the desert, experiencing the most unbelievable things with the worlds greatest people. I will most definitely go back next year again!
As a true eyewear geek I thought it was an awesome idea to wear a complete eyewear-inspired outfit one day, enjoy!

Who wouldn’t like to be a Barbie?
I’m going trough the pictures from the festival right now and I’m so pumped to share them all with you soon. I have plenty of crazy outfit pictures of myself, friends and random peeps I passed by during the week. So expect tons of crazy “On The Street” post, Burning man style ; ). Stay tuned!

Meet the new release from RVS: Celine.
Inspired by the shape of a butterfly, with colors reflecting the natural colors of a butterfly’s wings in the sun. No wonder the color combination looks so much alive! This is RVS first frame completely dedicated to female and I must say I’m very exited about what’s next to come. Great job!
The frames will be presented at Silmo this year and available in store SS13.
