These tiny sunglasses have made a huge fashion comeback
While we won’t be bending over backwards to avoid darting bullets, we will definitely start embracing the resurgence of the Matrix sunglasses trend that can be traced back to the 90s.
The name of the trend originated from the mind-boggling blockbuster film The Matrix, where characters Neo, Trinity, and Morpheus paired their uniforms of floor-grazing trench coats and combat boots with itsy-bitsy sunglasses.
Fast-forward to 2017, fashion house Balenciaga is said to be behind the return of this viral eyewear trend when the brand was the first to send down models touting the Matrix sunglasses during its Fall 2017 show. And like a forest fire, the trend swiftly caught on where the biggest and most-followed stars like the Hadid sisters, Kendall Jenner and Rihana, began to dress like a scene straight from a Matrix reboot.
Tiny, futuristic and usually angular, the Matrix sunglasses are so small that the function of shielding your eyes from harmful sun rays is defeated. But nevermind that. Just as long you look cool, we’re set.
