Yoko Ono Launches Bizarre Fashion Line

Inspired by John Lennon, the clothes aim to draw attention to certain parts of the body - and not in a subtle way.

Yoko Ono Launches Bizarre Fashion Line
61
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.

    Ok? Why are we finding out about Yoko's fashion line on a guitar website? On top of that I doubt much people care about this especially when the clothing looks that stupid.

    It's not just a guitar website, this is music news. And as Yoko is a musici- Actually maybe you have a point...

    Why are we hearing anything about Yoko anyway, let alone her weirdly homoerotic clothing that no one would ever wear even as a joke? It's not like she's important to....well, anyone.

    I'm not a yoko ono hater, She had some good tunes on double fantasy and a couple more of john lennons songs were about her and were really good.

    Seriously! A more relevant article would have been "John Lennon does barrel-rolls in grave upon learning Yoko Oh(fortheloveofgod)No released a fashion line." He would later go on to write "Imagine there's no Yoko"....I mean at least he WAS an actual guitarist....

    Thanks, Ultimate Guitar. News articles like this are exactly why I visit the site. I can rest easy knowing that if I want to know what's going on in the fashion industry, UG is just a few clicks away. Might as well change the name to "Ultimate Fashion". What are guitars anyway???

    1: Why must there be a hand on the crotch on two of the trousers? 2: Number three is a man - why does he need to cover his nipples with what looks to be like kitchen magnets attached to a short piece of cloth? 3: Why is number 4 wearing foglights? 4: How ****ing high was Yoko when she made this? 5 (biggest question): Why is a article about some widows new fasion line, on a website dedicated to MUSIC , in a section called MUSIC NEWS ?

    Note of Yokos imagination, all but one concentrates on the crotch, she is trying to tell us something "She, in a very simple manner, wanted to celebrate the body parts of John that she felt were exciting to her" Uhhh...

    Oh no, Yoko Ono is doing something that seems weird to a lot of people. STOP THE PRESSES, THIS HAS NEVER HAPPENED BEFORE!

    Looks ridiculous, hell knowing today's society, if people are stupid enough to think drainpipe-fit chinos and giant v neck shirts hanging so low that your nipples hang out is a good look, then this will probably catch on

    One of two - Either down voters did not get that you were trolling or two it just wasn't that funny... Probably the later...

    One of two - Either you are really stupid and don't know the term is "latter", or you're really stupid...Probably both...
