The Opening Ceremony x René Magritte collection is one that's equally as exciting for those who love fashion, as well as those who love art. The Opening Ceremony and Magritte collection not only revives works of art by the Belgian surrealist painter, but it makes it completely wearable too.

The looks for men and women include a range of shirts, dresses, skirts and trousers that embody some of Magritte's most well-known work, like 'Sheherazade,' 'The Beautiful Relations' and 'The King's Museum.' Staying true to the style of the paintings, the lookbook adopts a similar presentation, completely covering up faces with items like veils, as a reference to Magritte's 'The Lovers,' in addition to a number of other odd props and poses. The collection is set for release in May, but as of now, the garments can be pre-ordered online. Stats for Surrealist Painting Revival Fashion Trending: Older & Buzzing
