RVSA – fashion from Vienna

Dear Shaded Viewers,

RVSA is a new menswear collection created by two Vienna based designers, Anna and Rainer. I met them at the festival d’Hyeres several years ago when Anna Aichinger presented a woman’s collection. I had also been on her jury in Vienna. She was a student of Raf Simons.


Anna took all of the photographs of the RVSA collection


When I was in Vienna a few months ago I was very impressed by Rainer’s knowledge about the life and work of Pierre Cardin. I had been walking by the museum where PC was holding an exhibition and Rainer was on the steps and invited me in for a grand tour. It was excellent.

Later, Diane
