Opening Ceremony Collaborates With Dead Surrealist Painter On Latest Collection

Opening Ceremony Collaborates With Dead Surrealist Painter On Latest Collection

New York fashion retailer Opening Ceremony has had a lot of high profile collaborations with its in-house brand. There has been Opening Ceremony x Chloe Sevigny, Opening Ceremony x The Muppets, but there latest collaboration sees them create with a clothing line with René Magritte, the Surrealist artist who died in 1967.

The line, called Opening Ceremony & Magritte, features clothing with prints from some of the artist’s most iconic paintings. Each year, Opening Ceremony highlights a different country – 2014 is the year of Belgium, so the collection is a fitting one as the Surrealist master was Belgian. Opening Ceremony explains 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.
