Women’s Wear Daily reports the star has partnered with fashion brand Opening Ceremony to create a limited-edition line of 18 styles, called Yoko Ono Fashions For Men 1969-2012, that will launch at the retailer’s stores by the end of the month.

Ono says the collection was inspired by a collection of drawings that she sketched of Lennon and his “hot bod” as a gift for him for their wedding, which took place in 1969.

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.”

Is she kidding?  Does anyone really ever take her seriously?  Most don't.  What a joke!

Calling these clothes ugly and impractical would be meaningless.... she doesn't care obviously

I doubt very seriously that John Lennon would have ever worn anything like these "designs". Especially in this day and age, when he would be in his 70's.  So if she designed these for someone's "hot bod", it sure wasn't his. Nor, imo, would any man that I can think of look particularly hot in them.

This woman has seriously flipped her lid.  She is crazier now than she was before.  This is the stupidist "fashion" line out there.

I would never want to wear something that hideous.

On the other hand, those cut-out pants would allow you to freely RIP one whenever you felt the urge.

C'mon people...really? who is going to wear this stuff? And somehow I don't know that it would make John fall in love with her even more...???!!! She designed this series in 1969 and now it is out? Seems like someone is trying to be relevant.

Adore Yoko and have never disliked anything she's ever done, until I saw these. The cut out bum, is a giggle, but sorry......don't think this clothing line will do well.

    Fall shopping, decoded: How to get the most from every budget

    Smart fall shopping can’t be boiled down to some set-in-stone lineup of items. It’s much more about how you play with what you’ve got rather than just racking up a bunch of new stuff; sometimes your bank account’s balance simply won’t allow for a full-on wardrobe refresh. That’s when it’s important to know what’s worth it—and what isn’t.

    Cool collective: Fall’s best products

    Beauty editors are routinely asked to name three essentials they couldn’t live without on a desert island. So here’s our list: water, matches, protein bars. As much as we depend on beauty products, they’re not exactly essential to survival. These luxurious fragrances, nail polishes, and tools are no exception. They’re the anti-basics—hardly your medicine-cabinet staples. They won’t shrink pores or obliterate frizz, but they will make you weak with desire. And that’s a refreshing change of pace. Beyond just looking and feeling great, each of these cool new things appeals to our sense of style. How’s that for an SOS?

    12 iconic beauties who make the case for the cat eye

    Like red lipstick, cat eyes owe their timeless appeal to their spectacular, style-defining range that can, depending on application, telegraph Old Hollywood glamour, graphic minimalism, or counter-culture punk—what else do Siouxsie Sioux and Brigitte Bardot have in common? It’s impossible to think of Marilyn Monroe without those heavy-lidded bedroom eyes or Amy Winehouse sans her subversive, exaggerated swipe. A mere sweep of eye pencil transformed Anna Karina from a fresh-faced teenager into a French New Wave style icon, and Sophia Loren’s wide-eyed gaze has been forever etched into our collective memory with a frame of perfectly delineated black powder liner. Today, Alexa Chung gives the look a modern ease with a signature liquid swoosh that feels right whether she’s heading to brunch, the airport, or the red carpet. Here’s a look at the best feline eyes of all time. We feel certain that Choupette would approve.
