\\ FENDI F/W 2018

Super skinny, futuristic Matrix-inspired sunglasses have got to be Instagram's favourite eyewear this summer.
Seen on the runway at Prada, Balenciaga and Alexander Wang, micro-sunglasses have since been endorsed by some of fashion's favourite doyennes.
The 90’s trend has been gaining in popularity for the past year, with both metal and acetate frames with microsize shapes or cat-eyed, like the ones we are seeing on it girls like Bella Hadid, Hailey Baldwin, and the Hamlin sisters. Be they colour-tinted, reflective or all-black, here are the best Matrix-inspired sunglasses to help dodge those harmful UV rays in style this season. The look pairs with colourful nail vinyls, extravagant ‘Star Trek’ sneakers or - on the other hand - with the Fendi look that break with tradition with a contemporary appeal.
