Yoko Ono, Opening Cermeony Launch Fashion Line For Naughty Boys

Artist/musician/activist Yoko Ono’s new menswear line for Opening Ceremony is supposedly inspired by John Lennon, but we’re getting more of a Jake Shears vibe. The capsule collection includes tank tops with nipple cutouts, assless pants and a jock strap with an LED light on it.

It’s based on sketches Ono did on her wedding day in 1969, intended as designs for clothing that celebrated her rocker husband’s “hot bod.”

Well, it was the ’60s—scrawny, hairy guys were in.

“I was… amazed at how my man was looking so great,” recalled Ono, 79. “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.”

One lucky go-go boy is going to have a very merry Christmas.

    I’d wear those boots. I’m 67, what da ya think? Works?

  • Mark Jenkins

    Proving once again that she has NO TALENT for anything!

  • Spike

    With a Jake Spears vibe? WTF is that supposed to mean. What an insult to Jake Spears! This stuff is junk, Yoko should go back to screaming in a mic and calling it music.

    @Mark Jenkins: Thank you. Like much of Yoko Ono’s “output,” this latest incarnation proves yet again that you can successfully hawk even the emptiest and most grotesque bastardizations of art if you’ll only get people to refer to you as a “conceptual artist.”

    I would say the empress has no clothes, but is appears here they are.

    I would actually wear those pants for fun…. but I would only buy it if I was shopping and I saw it at the moment.

    Hilarious. Saw this on Buzzfeed and almost died laughing! Most people who would buy this stuff would get it home and then realize there is nowhere they would go where it is appropriate. Maybe on a gay cruise, but that’s about it.

    Love it!

    I am SO torn by this one… on one hand, the models are so cute, I’d look at them no matter what they were wearing.

    However, #4 “Chestnuts: a painful, embarrassing condition” OMG LMFAOBBQ!!!!!!!!!!!

    As usual, Loco Yoko has deliberately created the most ridiculous, hysterical, attention-grabbing spectacle, and feeds ecstatically on the attention; all of it negative. I can just picture her disturbingly expressionless face now, eyes like pigeons, and mouth squeezed shut like a little anus.
