After appearing in Dior’s ad campaign last year, Rihanna is now working on another project with the brand again. This time, she’s designing a collection of sunglasses for Dior.

This may be her first time designing with Dior, but Rihanna is hardly a rookie designer; she has previously teamed up with Manolo Blahnik, Stance Socks and Puma. It’s no wonder then, that Rihanna was very involved in creating the sunglasses with Dior’s eyewear designer Mathieu Jamin. It is said that she picked the materials and colors herself, making sure that the finished products will fit her inspiration: La Forge, a fictional character from “Star Trek.”

The collection, which is simply called Rihanna, will be sold at Dior stores and the brand’s website. Besides silver, pink, blue, green and red, the sunglasses will also come in pure (aka 24-karat) gold.

Besides designing the sunglasses, Rihanna, apparently, is promoting them herself. Or, as she mentioned in the caption that accompanies one of her Instagram posts, “Reppin da PHUCK out yo own sh*t!!!”

Rihanna was also shot by photographer Jean-Baptiste Mondin modeling the sunglasses in a series of images that was posted by WWD.
