Speaking of the collaboration, Rihanna says the process was pretty seamless and that the design ws inspired by La Forge from Star Trek,
"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."

Dior also expressed their pleasure and how happy they were about the collaboration. The CEO Sidney Toledano in his statement said "We are very pleased to partner for the second time with Rihanna," {referring to the Secret Garden IV campaign for the house which she starred in last year.} "She is an artist, an entertainer, an entrepreneur, a philanthropist, and a style icon for today's generation."
