Yoko Ono: abstract artist, obtuse celebrity, Beatles wife, woman who claims to have “so much love because the whole world hated me”. She’s not really known for subtlety, is she?
Neither is the eccentric fashion/retail brand Opening Ceremony, which recently debuted a line of menswear designed by none other than Ms. Ono herself. Is it every bit as weird as you’d imagine? Oh yeah. The two might just be a perfect pair!
The line, creatively titled “Yoko Ono’s Fashions for Men 1969-2012″, consists of a bunch of…let’s say eccentric coats, shirts, kneepads, open-toe thigh high boots (for men, mind you) and the “lightbulb bra” pictured at left. We can’t claim to be fashion experts, but we wonder: What are the handprints all about, other than Ono’s unceasing desire to grab crotches? We don’t even know what to say about the “butt hoodie“…
This is all more than a little ridiculous, and Ono’s explanation doesn’t really clear things up.
