The Vinyl Trend Is Back And It’s Reminding Us Of ‘The Matrix’


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. The street style crowd has been embracing the vinyl trend in Paris and Milan Fashion Week, and even stars in the likes of Bella Hadid and Kim Kardashian couldn’t get enough of it too. Here are some Matrix-inspired pieces you can incorporate into your wardrobe: Trench Coat

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)
