    Description

    Keanu Reeves "Neo" signature Cassock fighting coat from The Matrix: Reloaded and The Matrix: Revolutions. (Warner Bros., 2003) Original floor-length black signature character cassock fighting coat. Constructed of tight waffle-weave wool blend fabric with long sleeves, standing collar, self button closure running from floor to neck with 3-snap collar closure. Interior lined in black satin. Hem is designed at a bias to allow the back to be more voluminous for movement and cape-like flow in action scenes. Costume designer Kym Barrett created this costume for heavy use in the 2nd and 3rd installments of the blockbuster Sci-Fi franchise. As the "Neo" character had grown in confidence and power, she envisioned the costume representing a more "ecclesiastical feeling with a Zen/Chinese feeling mixed in as well". The costume was created in 3 or 4 different fabrics that would look good under many circumstances and elements from being saturated in fight sequences in rain to acrobatic flying in the air. All the fabrics were made to look identical so the audience wouldn't discern the differences. Jacket features open under arm sections, often found in dancer's costumes, to facilitate the widest range of motion for the actor. This particular version of the coat is attributed as a "fighting coat" designed to move elegantly in action sequences. Retaining the internal "Artistic Costumes" bias label typed, "Fighting Cassock, Keanu Reeves, 2/3". Exhibiting only minor production wear, some very slight balling and thread pulls. In very fine condition.
