New York fashion retailer Open Ceremony has made some serious noise with its high profile collaborations - Opening Ceremony x Chloe Sevigny, Opening Ceremony x The Muppets, but its latest collabo finds them creating with a clothing line with Rene Magritte, the surreal artist who died in 1976.
The line, simly named Opening Ceremony & Magritte, features pieces featuring some of the artists most iconic paintings. Opening Ceremony takes on a different country to highlight every year, and 2014 is Belgium, which is perfectly fitting considering the surreal artist, Margitte, was Belgian.
Opening Ceremony stated on their blog:
“The range takes twelve of Magritte’s iconic paintings and translates them directly into fashion; it continues the poetic and humorous nature of the artist’s original work, and continues a theme that Magritte was most interested in: extreme juxtapositions between combinations of objects, and the ordinary versus the abstract.”
