Rihanna has named La Forge from "Star Trek" as the inspiration behind the frame, saying "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," with Dior's eyewear designer Mathieu Jamin adding that the Rihanna frames are "really strong and something we don't have in the collection, so it's unique."


The "Rihanna" sunglass collection will launch early June and be sold exclusively at Dior stores.
