Yoko Ono has launched a menswear line on Tuesday, which she says was inspired by John Lennon’s “hot bod.”
The unconventional line, which features see through cut-out tops, pants with a big handprint on the crotch area and even a bra for men, is available in Opening Ceremony stores in New York, Los Angeles, London and soon Tokyo.
In 1969, Ono said she sketched drawings of the clothes for her late husband on their wedding day. Since then, the drawings were turned into the book Fashions for Men and now the line, USA Today reports.
“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,” she told Women’s Wear Daily.
“So, I made this whole series with love for his hot bod and gave it to him as a wedding present. You can imagine how he went wild and fell in love with me even more.”
There will be 18 styles in the collection, which will launch next week.
