RiRi has joined forces with the luxury French label for the second time to design a new futuristic eyewear collection simply called Rihanna, which was inspired by LeVar Burton’s character Geordi La Forge from Star Trek: The Next Generation.
Rihanna has collaborated on an exclusive sunglasses line with Dior, and the collection will be debuting in early June.
As part of her brand ambassadorship with Dior, the “Anti” singer collaborated with the french fashion house to create a line of futuristic frames.
According to WWD, the new “Rihanna” sunglasses collection will only be available in Dior stores. One style of shades will be offered in six different mirrored, metallic colors, from a cobalt blue to a steely silver. The styles will retail for $840 and an exclusive 24-karat, gold-plated deluxe pair will be available for $1,950.
“We are very pleased to partner for the second time with Rihanna,” Dior chief executive officer Sidney Toledano told WWD (the first official collaboration being a campaign and short film for Dior titled “Secret Garden IV.”) “She is an artist, an entertainer, an entrepreneur, a philanthropist, and a style icon for today’s generation,” Toledano stated.
Rihanna’s eyewear collaboration with Dior follows on the heels of her footwear collection designed in collaboration with Manolo Blahnik — “Denim Desserts” — which debuted last month in May. The singer also launched her Fenty Puma by Rihanna collection for FW16 at New York Fashion Week in February.
The megastar took to Instagram to tease her new sunglasses collection and recently posted this image below to her account:
