Leather is undeniably a timeless staple. While this edgy piece remains relevant, the legacy of 1999 sci-fi film, The Matrix, has also withstood time and is considered a classic, as it has cemented the dominatrix semblance in culture and fashion. Now, in a more modern look for the season, glossed leather is all the rage with designers like Saint Laurent, Chanel, and Miu Miu filling the runways with striking shiny pieces. The time-honored, Wachowski-directed film is somewhat a foreshadowing of the future and 18 years later, glossy leather (a.k.a vinyl) is taking over the streetwear scene.
Here are some Matrix-inspired pieces you can incorporate into your wardrobe:
Topshop Clear Vinyl Trench Coat
Self-Portrait Maroon Patent Zip Trousers
Mango Vinyl Bomber
Bershka Faux Vinyl Biker Jacket
Kenzo Ruched Vinyl Skirt (available online on Farfetch)
