Breaking news: starting today, you can buy clothes that Yoko Ono designed for John Lennon in 1969, at your local Opening Ceremony (and it all just landed online too).
That’s right, Yoko Ono and Opening Ceremony have collaborated on an 18-piece men’s collection that features stuff like “a jersey pullover with eyelets cut out over the nipple region” accompanied by a “lightbulb bra” (yes, this is all “menswear”). It’s a match made in high-fashion heaven—of some alternate universe where Zoolander’s Mugatu runs a sex dungeon/bed-in and breakfast that only plays songs credited to John Ono Lennon on loop. We’re not even sure if the Rick Owens crowd can get on board with this stuff, but if there’s anyone who can pull off the oddball conceptual art gambit, it’s Yoko.
The Opening Ceremony Band breakup watch begins now.
A few of Yoko’s sketches for the collection (which will also be made into a book)…
