(NEW YORK) Yoko Ono is joining forces with Opening Ceremony to create a limited edition menswear collection inspired by a series of men's fashion, sportswear, footwear, and tailoring sketches drawn for her late husband, John Lennon, in honor of their 1969 wedding. According to Ono, the sketches, titled 'Fashions for Men,' were inspired by Lennon's "hot bod". The collection features trousers, hoodies, and leather boots, and will launch next week in Opening Ceremony's U.S., London, and Tokyo stores. In addition to clothing, Ono's O.C. line will be accompanied by a book featuring Ono's drawings as well as posters.
The Japanese artist, author, peace activist, and designer, sometimes referred to as "The Fifth Beatle," recently paired up with Swarovski for a capsule collection in August. Also on Ono's 2012 roster of endeavors? Musically speaking, "Talking to the Universe" became Ono's seventh consecutive number-one hit on the Billboard Hot Dance Club Songs chart; in the art world, she showed "To the Light" across the pond at the Serpentine Gallery as part of the London 2012 Festival; Ono also received a "Lifetime Achievement" award from the Dublin Biennial in June.
