Oh, Yoko! Ono’s fashion line gropes for Lennon
NEW YORK (AP) - You remember that Beatles classic “I Wanna Hold Your Hand”? Turns out Yoko Ono had other things in mind.
The collection of menswear for Opening Ceremony is based on a series of drawings she sketched as a gift for Lennon for their wedding day in 1969. Ono said she the illustrations were designs for clothing and accessories to celebrate Lennon’s “hot bod.”
Also in the collection are a “butt hoodie” with an outline drawing suggesting its name, pants with cutouts at the behind, a jock strap with an LED light and a transparent chest plaque with bells and a leather neck strap.
“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. “So, I made this whole series with love for his hot bod, and gave it to him as a wedding present.”
Opening Ceremony hosted a book signing at its SoHo store for Ono for a book that contained the illustrations, and that led to the collaboration to bring them to life. The limited-edition capsule collection, “Fashions for Men: 1969-2002,” launched on Tuesday.
“As huge, longtime fans of Yoko’s art, we have great respect for her artistic vision, aesthetics, and intellect,” said Humberto Leon, co-founder and creative director of Opening Ceremony.
Prices run from $25 for a poster to $200 for a jock strap or $750 for boots with an incense holder or open toes.
