Rihanna is like the gift that keeps on giving, especially in the fashion industry. As many of you know, Rihanna was the first Black woman to become an ambassador for Christian Dior but now she’s being crowned as the first brand ambassador to design a project for the luxury brand company because she’s coming out with her very own Dior shades!
As part of her ambassadorship, Riri has been given the opportunity to team up with CD to introduce a new ‘futuristic’ sunglasses line which is simply being named “Rihanna”.
According to WWD, Rihanna got her inspiration for the sunglasses La Forge a character from Star Trek. She states, “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.”
The flat top style sunglasses will come in a variation of cute colors and a pricey price tag. For instance, the pink, silver, blue, green, and red shades all have a price point of $840. While her 24k gold plated glasses will sell at a whopping $1950!!!
Dior’s eyewear designer Mathieu Jamin also commented on the Rihanna collaboration. “She chose all the materials,” Jamin said to WWD. “We had a lot of different samples with different effect of metals. She chose all the lenses and took time to match all the colors together to see if it was right on her face. It was really important to her.” This will also be Jamin first time taking on a project with a celebrity.
Word is RiRi’s shades are set to be exclusively be sold at Dior stores in early June, which is great because summer is right around the corner! #Roommates, will you be copping a pair of these trendy glasses? Lets chat below!
