Move over Kurt Cobain, the sunglass realm has its eye (pun intended) on another pop cultural reference this season. We've already listed how The Matrix is influencing current fashion trends, but none seem to be more prevalent than those squinty-eyed facial ornaments donned by the film's hard-as-nails cast. During our time in Tbilisi a few months back, we noticed just how obsessed our stylish Eastern friends were with the futuristic style; but now that the SS18 European fashion week circuit is done and dusted, the frames have proven to be a must-have accessory for an even larger fashionista brigade.

Be them color-tinted, reflective or all-black, here are 10 Matrix-inspired sunglasses to help you dodge those harmful UV rays in style this season.
