Yoko Ono, the nearly octogenarian widow of Beatle John Lennon artist, musician, and activist is now launching a fashion brand based on hand-drawn illustrations presented to Lennon by Ono on the occasion of their wedding in 1969.
Teaming up with uber-chic New York fashion emporium Opening Ceremony, Ono is launching “Fashions For Men: 1969-2012,” a 52-piece collection of unisex apparel, footwear and accessories “The line is available exclusively at Opening Ceremony and a limited run of T-shirts, sweatshirts, and posters featuring her artwork are also available.
The line is expectedly edgy, with one of the most provocative designed as a "hand" wool suit, featuring a white handprint over the crotch of a pair of black trousers. As ArtDaily reports, “Bare shoulders peek out of paper-thin tight-fitting knit tops in pink or black. Tank tops and shirts are also provocative, with peekaboo holes.”
"I was inspired to create 'Fashions for Men', amazed at how my man was looking so great. I felt it was a pity if we could not make clothes emphasizing his very sexy bod," Ono said in a statement.
