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.
