While the glasses depicted in the pin and badge art are certainly a sweet choice for those who enjoy retro style, perhaps you’d prefer a more modern example? Though The Matrix was released in 1999, the fashion still seems modern by today’s standards — and the striking sunglasses worn by the character Trinity have a unique shape while still meeting the “cat-eye” criteria. As they are black in color and give off a more insectoid appearance, they can be considered a unisex alternative to the typical cat-eye pair. Curious about how these glasses were made? According to Fashionista.com, costume designer Kym Barrett first drew up the designs of each character’s signature pair. Then glasses designer Richard Walker made each pair according to her specifications by hand. To ensure that these custom lenses would be a perfect fit, head molds of each glasses-wearing actor were made, and then cast in plaster! The process may seem extravagant, but there’s no denying that the extra effort definitely paid off! Where else have you seen such sensational sunglasses?
You’ll be able to capture the 20/20 Vision specials on other players’ munzees as well as your own for the remainder of the year!
