Rihanna has designed a unique, and very expensive, line of designer sunglasses for Dior and fans are raving about the collection.
The collection of shades, called Rihanna, will be sold exclusively in Dior stores in June and come in the shads silver, pink, blue, green, and red. They will retail for $840. The 24-karat gold version will retail for $1, 950.
Sidney Toledano, CEO for Dior, told WWD, “We are very pleased to partner for the second time with Rihanna. She is an artist, an entertainer, an entrepreneur, a philanthropist, and a style icon for today’s generation.”
Rihanna also spoke on the design process of the collection saying, “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.”
