About Morpheus Sunglasses
Named after the Greek god of dreams, Morpheus is the formidable captain of the Nebuchadnezzar in "The Matrix" franchise. Portrayed with style and gravitas by Laurence Fishburne in the movie series, he wears a long leather duster and mirrored Morpheus sunglasses. Called pince-nez glasses, French for "pinch the nose," these mysterious sunglasses take confidence to wear. Lacking a temple and earpiece, these vintage sunglasses feature a hard bridge that molds to fit your nose. A pair of spring-loaded clips with tiny silicone pads keeps these lightweight sunglasses in place. These comfortable modern, yet retro sunglasses are similar in form to the pince-nez eyewear sported by President Theodore Roosevelt and Russian author Anton Chekhov. The pair worn by Morpheus feature mirrored lenses, adding to the character's mysterious nature. Blinde Sunglasses designed and made the original custom sunglasses worn by Fishburne in the films. You can browse the continually changing listings on eBay for a pair Morpheus sunglasses with black, rose, or smoke-colored lenses. Look for scratch-resistant polycarbonate lenses that have UVA and UVB protection.
