Opening Ceremony and Birkenstock Store Unite For Two Art-Inspired Boston Clogs

U.S. retailer Opening Ceremony has linked up with Birkenstock for two-piece Boston Clog capsule that pays homage to the works of Belgian surrealist artist René Magritte.

Renowned for his influence on pop art, minimalist art, and conceptual art, Magritte’s ability to depict ordinary objects in unusual contexts were both thought-provoking and ahead of its time. The Empire of Lights (1954) and The False Mirror (1929) were two of his most famous works, and take centre stage of this collaborative release.

“Partnering again with the Magritte Foundation to rework the Birkenstock Boston clogs is a testament to our commitment to supporting the arts,” said Carol Lim and Humberto Leon of Opening Ceremony 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.”

The Opening Ceremony x Birkenstock Boston Clogs are available to buy now from Birkenstock and Opening Ceremony’s U.S. stores, retailing at $180 USD.
