Rihanna has added another fashion achievement to her name with a new Dior sunglasses collection.
The multi-awarded singer’s recent fashion collaboration with Dior has resulted to a new sunglasses collection, WWD reported. Rihanna, who also serves as the brand’s ambassador, has recently designed a line of futuristic looking sunglasses. The collection has been named “Rihanna” and features only one style with a reflective frame and mirrored lenses.
The soon-to-be-released “Rihanna” Dior sunglasses 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.
In a Dior statement, it has been revealed that Rihanna’s inspiration for the Dior sunglasses project was the “Star Trek” character Georgi La Forge, as stated in the same report. The singer explained that she has “always been obsessed” with the said character’s eyewear. The “Work” crooner even commented that the whole idea “just came together” after she saw all the materials available during a visit at Dior.
Rihanna also described the design process as “pretty seamless.” It appears that the creative part of the process was completed in just one day. Rihanna stated that she kept on drawing various designs until she came up with something that she was happy with. “The [Dior] 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,” the singer shared.
The songwriter and fashion designer has also shared some snaps of the Dior sunglasses on her social media account. She recently uploaded the silver version of the Dior sunglasses on Instagram. She captioned the image, “When you reppin da PH--- out yo own s---!!!”
Meanwhile, the Barbadian musician’s latest line of Puma creepers will mark the singer’s third line of sneakers for the said brand. Similar with her previous two Puma sneaker collections, the “Diamonds” crooner’s latest line is also expected to sell out quickly, as stated in report posted on Vanity Fair.
Rihanna’s new Puma creepers will be released to the market on Thursday while the singer’s new Dior sunglasses line will be available in Dior stores in early June.
