Yoko Ono Launches Bizarre Fashion Line
Yoko Ono has launched a brand new fashion line, possibly proving she's as good at design as she is at music.

Inspired by John Lennon (or rather, parts of his anatomy), Ono began sketching out her fashion ideas in 1969 - but it took a meeting with Humberto Leon in 2009 to bring the line to life.

Leon said: "She, in a very simple manner, wanted to celebrate the body parts of John that she felt were exciting to her. So yes, they are elements that people could be shier about, but I feel like that's kind of the beauty of it.

"It's very bold, it's trying to show the things that are slightly more intimate, some more than others. We really wanted to play around with that. In so many ways these are expressions of her as a conceptual artist and there's a reality as well as an art side that I really appreciate."

You'll have to act fast if you want any items from the line. As you can tell by the images below, these designs will be in high demand, but only 52 of each have been produced. Prices for the products below range from $145 to $595.
