Superstar singer Rihanna collaborated with Dior on a sunglasses collection to be sold exclusively at Dior stores in June.

The name of the collection is called “Rihanna” and the frame that you see in the cover picture is available in 6 different colors: Silver, pink, blue, green and red that will cost $840, as well as 24kt gold plated deluxe version that will cost $1,950 dollars.

Rihanna told WWD in an interview that the collection was inspired by  La Forge from “Star Trek”.

She also said: “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”.

About the design process she 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. We picked materials and colors that same day, and after that it was a matter of weeks before I saw the first prototype”.

It sounds like she had a lot of designing this collection. We look forward to seeing more pictures of it and other future collaborations from the Bajan beauty.
