Rihanna is back at it again, collaborating with another fashion power house. And this time it’s Dior.
Resident bad gal’ Riri first announced back in March of this year about her collab with none other than Manolo Blahnik on a heel collection. Now it seems as though all Rihanna does is work, work, work, work, work because she has partnered with Dior on a line of futuristic, reflective sunglasses that are inspired by Star Trek: Next Generations‘ Lieutenant Geordi La Forge’s visor, a piece of technology that allowes him to see, because without it he’s unfortunately blind.
Fashion and Star Trek are coming together. My two worlds are colliding. I won’t lie. I think I’ve died and gone to Heaven.
The sunglasses will be available in six colours and will range at approximately $840. But before your brace out your pocket book, there will be a 24-karat gold-plated pair ranging at $1,950. #NBD. The collab will simply be called “Rihanna”, and the brand ambassador couldn’t be more excited. She sat down with WWD to discuss the new line, “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. We picked materials and colors that same day, and after that it was a matter of weeks before I saw the first prototype.”
June can’t come fast enough!
