Opening Ceremony x Birkenstock's Clogs Are a Surrealist Work of Art

Featuring two iconic works by René Magritte.

Birkenstock has joined forces with Opening Ceremony to celebrate the Surrealist works of the iconic artist, 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.”

Priced at $180 USD a pair, the René Magritte Boston clogs are now available at Birkenstock and Opening Ceremony‘s stores in the U.S. only.
