Opening Ceremony x Birkenstock's Clogs Are a Surrealist Work of Art
Featuring two iconic works by René Magritte.
The Belgian name was known for his thought-provoking works that play around with perceptions of reality. Two artworks in particular — The Empire of Lights (1954) and The False Mirror (1929) — have been applied onto Birkenstock’s Boston clog.
The team-up is captured through a campaign inspired by Magritte’s signature Surrealist style. “Partnering again with the Magritte Foundation to rework the Birkenstock Boston clogs is a testament to our commitment to supporting the arts,” Opening Ceremony’s Carol Lim and Humberto Leon shared in a statement. “As long-time admirers of René Magritte’s surrealist works, we couldn’t be more excited about reinterpreting L’Empire des Lumières and Le Faux Miroir for Birkenstock.”
