Yoko Ono is collaborating with Opening Ceremony to add fashion to the list of things she has no business doing. Ono's new menswear line is based on how hunky she thought John Lennon was, and the designs—pants with a handprint on the crotch, black jockstraps, pink mesh tops with cutouts around the nipples—pay unnecessary attention to the male naughty bits. "I felt it was a pity if we could not make clothes emphasizing his very sexy bod," Ono said of her late husband and inspiration. And it's true, there just aren't enough designer clothes for skinny white men. What's really being emphasized here is that Opening Ceremony has clearly never seen or heard any of Yoko's previous work, because if they had, they would have known better than to let her design anything.
