Rucuss staffMay 26, 2016
Rihanna teamed up with Dior to launch a series of sunglasses.
RiRi t showed off a few of her sunnies on Instagram. Per WWD, the sunglasses are priced at $840, and will be available at Dior’s various locations in June. In a statement, Dior’s chief executive officer Sidney Toledano said, “We are very pleased to partner for the second time with Rihanna. She is an artist, an entertainer, an entrepreneur, a philanthropist, and a style icon for today’s generation.”
Rihanna designed one futuristic frame that will be available in six colors: silver, pink, blue, green and red, plus a 24-karat gold-plated edition for $1,950. The “Rihanna” collection will be sold exclusively at Dior stores starting in June.
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.
