After embodying the Christian Dior woman in the Secret Garden IV ad campaign, the house of Dior and Rihanna are writing a new page in their shared story: the star has designed a pair of sunglasses with pure lines and futuristic accents in a range of metalized colors. Named simply ‘Rihanna’, the sunglasses will arrive in Dior stores in June.
The soon-to-be-released ‘Rihanna’ sunglasses features only one style with a reflective frame and mirrored lenses and will also available in six different colors. The pink, blue, green, red and silver styles will be available in the market for $840. However, the 24-karat gold-plated style will retail for $1,950.
Rihanna’s inspiration for the Dior sunglasses project was the “Star Trek” character Georgi La Forge. The singer has always been obsessed with the said character’s eyewear and states that the whole idea just came together after she saw all the materials available during a visit at Dior.
The collection reflects a star who plays as much with fashion as she does music, composing a new vision of woman with each new album. This collaboration marks the fusion of Rihanna’s personal sense of style with the creativity of the Dior spirit.
