In 1969, YOKO ONO presented John Lennon with a series of sketches as a wedding gift. The illustrations were designs for clothing and accessories intended to celebrate John's "hot bod." As ONO explains, “I was inspired to create 'Fashion for Men,' [because I was] 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.” This season, 48 years after John and ONO's wedding, ONO and Opening Ceremony have worked together to bring her sketches to life!
Today, the collection launches exclusively at Opening Ceremony. The limited-edition clothing styles run from peekaboo pants with handprint patches and sheer behinds, to hot pink blazers with mesh sleeves and tanks with nipple cutouts. To accessorize the latter, ONO has even dreamed up a flashing LED bra. Playful interactive elements define the accessories collection, which also includes leather belts with working chrome bells, and knee-high boots with pockets. Each piece is part of a limited run of only 52 and is available only at OC.
We couldn't be more excited to have worked with YOKO ONO to make her designs a reality, and if you're in New York tonight, come join us
