Model: Old Skool and Slip-On “René Magritte” pack
Key Features: Both models feature Belgian artist René Magritte’s paintings from the early 20th century as an all-over graphic. The Old Skool is emblazoned with the painting ‘Memory of a Journey (Souvenir de Voyage)’ across its upper, which features a masked apple. The Slip-On features ‘The Lovers (Les Amants)’ from 1928, another painting that deals with themes related to masks, disguises, and what lies beyond visible surfaces.
Release Date: October 6
Buy: Opening Ceremony
Editor’s Notes: Opening Ceremony has teamed up with Vans once again, this time commemorating the Belgian master René Magritte’s works from the early 20th century. The Opening Ceremony x Vans “René Magritte” pack comprises an Old Skool and a Slip-On, both of whose uppers are emblazoned with one of Magritte's paintings.
“René Magritte transports us to a time when we question reality and I believe we are living in one of those moments.” says Opening Ceremony’s Humberto Leon. “It is through art that we are able to ask the question of things not seeming like what they appear and I think its a powerful point to make as a question to society.”
The pack drops at Opening Ceremony on October 6.
