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.

They include cutout tops, eyelet tanks, lion-tailed trousers, incense-spouting boots and a wild array of other quirky apparel and accessories.
