Fall 2017 Trend #3: Patent Agent

Proenza Schouler | Saint Laurent | Bottega Veneta


No, those models are not dressed in Matrix cosplay, although that’s a tough case to argue with many runways featuring what seem to be selections from Trinity’s secret, high-fashion wardrobe. Hmmm…possible premise for a fourth Matrix film? (This is where I lost Lani.)

This fall, you’ll find more than just patent shoes. Prepare for coats, skirts, dresses, etc. made from the shiny stuff. Not sure where to start with this trend? Maybe the sample outfits below can help you out.

Happy Shopping!
