Yoko Ono Designs John Lennon Tribute Led Jockstrap
Yoko Ono has designed a new fashion range inspired by her late husband John Lennon. The collection for Opening Ceremony features designs based on a collection of "Fashions For Men" drawings she exchanged with the former Beatle as a wedding gift in 1969, NME reports. The sketches showed men's clothes that, In Ono's words, "emphasiz[ed] his very sexy bod". The 18-piece collection features an LED jockstrap, trousers with a hand stitched over the crotch, a pair of boots with a handy receptacle for holding incense in and a jumper with strategically placed nipple holes. Prices for the items start at $75 (£46) to $750 (£460). Paperback books containing Ono's sketches will also be on sale for $30 (£18) each. Other items designed for Lennon, including "underwear fashioned from a rigid mask" and "pants attached to a long lion's tail in the rear" sadly failed to make it into the collection. Yoko Ono is set to curate next years' Meltdown Festival at London's Southbank Centre which takes place from June 14-23. The music and arts event has previously been headed by David Bowie, Patti Smith and Jarvis Cocker. The artist recently thanked Paul McCartney for saying she that she didn't split up The Beatles. Ono has long been held responsible for the demise of the Fab Four, and thanked McCartney for finally putting the issue to rest, calling him a "brave man" after he said the group was already breaking up before she got together with Lennon.
