Rihanna X Dior: Rihanna Releases a Futuristic Sunglass Collection with Dior
Rihanna has had quite the year and it looks like things are only beginning to heat up as she announces her latest design project, a sleek new sunglass collection with Parisian fashion house, Dior. Amidst a hugely popular collaboration with Puma and the debut on her first full Fenty Puma by Rihanna Collection during New York Fashion week in February, everyone’s favorite bad girl is quickly making a name for herself as a serious power player in the business of fashion.
Dior has been a Rihanna fan for quite some time, casting the influential songstress in its ongoing “Secret Garden Series” and officially making her the first black face to front a Dior campaign. Affection seems to have quickly turned into infatuation, however, as RiRi is becoming the first brand ambassador to be granted her own signature collection.
The collection aptly named “Rihanna”, is minimal, sleek, and futuristic. If it brings up memories of “Star Trek” (but much cooler of course), you’re not far off track. The starlet revealed that her inspiration for the collection came from the film series, specifically the character “La Forge”. “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,” she said.
Wondering where you can get your hands on the Dior x Rihanna Sunglass Collection and exactly how much it’ll cost you? The good news is that we have the answers, and well, the bad news, you can decide on that you’re self. The Dior “Rihanna” collection will be sold exclusively at Dior stores at a purchase price of $840. In terms of options, the launch will include one frame available in 6 different color ways (silver, pink, blue, green and red styles), along with a blinged out deluxe 24-karat gold version which will set you back a couple of hundred more at $1,950.
