Rihanna And Dior’s Sunglasses Collaboration – Singer Rihanna has launched a line of futuristic-looking sunglasses in collaboration with Dior.
The fashion house announced the collaboration on Tuesday, with Riri releasing a personally-designed frame that will come in silver, pink, blue, green and red. The glasses would sell for $840 (N294,000) for one. There is also a 24-karat gold-plated edition which will be sold for $1950 (N652,500).
“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,” Rihanna said about drawing inspiration for the glasses from Star Trek character Geordi La Forge.
Riri added: “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 are very pleased to partner for the second time with Rihanna,” Dior CEO Sidney Toledano said. “She is an artist, an entertainer, an entrepreneur, a philanthropist and a style icon for today’s generation.” Check the shades out below!
