Belgian surrealist painter, René Magritte, sought to make “everyday objects shriek aloud.”
The weird and wonderful world of Magritte is coming to Opening Ceremony stores in May 2014 with a limited edition ready-to-wear collection alongside three footwear collaborations with brands Birkenstock, Vans, and Manolo Blahnik.
Magritte’s iconic painting Shéhérazade is featured in the form of a dress, top and pearl-embroidered bomber jacket. Other of his famous paintings in the collection include The Lovers, featured on an open-toe Birkenstock and The King’s Museum on a classic Vans lace-up sneaker. Manolo Blahnik has designed an exclusive stiletto that will feature the painting The Blow to the Heart. Check out an exciting sneak peek from today’s press preview at Opening Ceremony London!
