The Best Matrix-Inspired Celebrity Fashion
October 7, 2017
It’s been 18 years since the 1999 release of the first Matrix, the start of a franchise that not only became a cultural phenomenon, but also a fashion-industry favorite. The early 2000s saw celebrities modeling themselves after characters like Neo, Trinity, and Morpheus in their signature long coats, shiny black leather, and small-framed sunglasses.
Since fashion is a cyclical beast, the influence of The Matrix has resurfaced, appearing on a number of today’s young and famous, many of whom were just in the single digits when the first film was released. Still, their interpretations of the sci-fi franchise are enough to make wearing a patent-leather trench coat cool again.
