Yoko Ono, the widow of musician and Beatles icon John Lennon, has embarked on a new career after 79 years of making her mark in art, music, filmmaking and publishing. Ono has entered the world of fashion by launching a menswear collection. She decided to turn her 1969 sketches titled “Fashions for Men,” which had been a wedding gift to Lennon, into a book and collection with retail partner Opening Ceremony . The drawings, loosely annotated in the book, were inspired by Lennon’s “hot bod,” according to Ono. They include cutout tops, eyelet tanks, lion-tailed trousers, incense-spouting boots and a wild array of other quirky apparel and accessories.
When asked how male styles have evolved since the late 1960s, Ono told Style.com : “Men’s fashion has not changed that much. That’s why I wanted to say with my designs, ‘Hey, loosen up, guys!’ I think they will have a lot of fun wearing these clothes I visualized in 1969.”
The eccentric line will debut in Opening Ceremony stores in New York and Los Angeles on Nov. 27. Prices range from $25 for posters to $750 for incense boots.
