Opening Ceremony Honors René Magritte With New Collection

Paying homage to one of Sweden’s most iconic surreal artists, Opening Ceremony teams up with the estate of René Magritte for a new collaborative collection. OC did Magritte justice on this one top to bottom, which is evident in the accompanying lookbook.

Magritte is best known for challenging the perception of reality through his paintings. He would obscure his subjects’ faces by covering them with a cloth. His strange stylistic approach is attributed to an early traumatic event, in which Magritte witnessed his mother being pulled out of a river by police after drowning herself. When the police retrieved the body, her dress was covering her face. Hence, Opening Ceremony chose to omit their models’ faces in each photo.

As for the collection, Opening Ceremony used a number of the artist’s most famous works emblazoned on a series of men’s and women’s tops, pants, outerwear, Vans sneakers, and even Manolo Blahnik heels. Any given item might run your pockets, but fashion is art, bro, get with it.

The Opening Ceremony x Magritte Collection is available now, in-store and online at OC.
