The 79-year-old artist and widow of John Lennon debuted her new menswear line for Opening Ceremony this week, and we've gotta admit... we can't imagine a weirder array of clothes for dudes.
Yoko Ono Fashions For Men 1969-2012 was based on a collection of drawings titled “Fashions for Men” that Ono sketched as a gift for Lennon for their 1969 wedding. Yoko says it was inspired by his rockin' bod:
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. So, I made this whole series with love for his hot bod and gave it to him as a wedding present. You can imagine how he went wild and fell in love with me even more.
Well, then, feel free to picture the pale Beatles singer sporting some of Yoko's sartorial imaginings, like a $200 LED jockstrap and this $400 transparent chest plaque reading "“RING FOR YOUR MOMMY PIECE y.o. 69-12." The pricing ranges from $75 to $750 and the clothes will debut at Opening Ceremony stores on November 30, but you can browse it online here.
If the flamboyant-shop-class accessories didn't seem bizarre enough, Women's Wear Daily reports that some of Ono's most outlandish pieces didn't even make it into the collection, including "underwear fashioned from a rigid mask" and an outfit "comprised of just pants attached to a long lion’s tail in the rear."
Luckily, there's plenty of mesh and art project miscellany still on sale. Does your dude need some ventilated ass trousers, a shirt made of Big Bird's tights or a sweatshirt with
balls, allegedly, a "butt" on it?
