Opening Ceremony Introduces Vans To Artist Réné Margritte

Opening Ceremony’s Humberto Leon and Carol Lim have outdone themselves with their latest collaboration with famed skate shoe brand Vans. Titled the “Year of Belgium,” the line celebrates Belgian artist Réné Magritte’s work by featuring his surrealist images on the classic canvas shoes.

The surreal shoe collection will use 5 of Magritte’s most recognized paintings — Shéhérazade, Blow to the Heart, The Ladder of Fire, A Beautiful Relationship, and The King’s Museum — on the face of the sneakers serving as a retrospective for Magritte’s renowned talent.
