Rihanna said Star Trek‘s visor-wearing lieutenant, Geordi La Forge,was her source of inspiration.

“I’ve always been obsessed with his eyewear, and when I got to Dior and saw all the materials I could play with, it all just came together,” Rihanna said. “”The process was pretty seamless. I spent a day at Dior with their eyewear design team. I started by looking through all the archives to see what they’ve done in the past, then got acquainted with all the new materials. I literally sat there and drew and drew until I was happy with the design, and the team illustrated it for me right then and there.”

The “Rihanna” sunglasses collection marks the Barbadian pop star’s second collaboration with Dior.
