Per WWD, Ono and Opening Ceremony are collaborating on an eighteen-piece collection of men’s clothes, including a “lightbulb bra,” to be in stores next week, priced from $75 to $750. The designs were culled from Ono’s 1969 sketchbook for John Lennon, called Fashions for Men, which she “was inspired to create … 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 … 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.” We can only imagine. Sadly, as WWD points out, some pieces won’t be produced, like “underwear fashioned from a rigid mask.”
