Japanese singer Yoko Ono has teamed up with Opening Ceremony to create "Fashions for Men 1969-2012," a provocative and high-priced men’s clothing line that will be sure to grab everyone’s attention.

Fashions for Men 1969-2012 is a limited 34-piece collection inspired by a book of hand drawings that Yoko Ono gave to her husband John Lennon for their wedding. The cheeky collection includes everything from pants with mesh buttocks cutouts, jackets with cutouts and trousers with hands printed on the groin. There’s even a jock strap with an LED light!

Ono told the New York Times she loved the way her late husband looked in clothes. Most of the pieces in Fashions for Men 1969-2012 emphasize the ‘good bits’ such as the nipples, buttocks and crotch.  Her line is meant to make men look good but also to allow women to enjoy the sexuality of men. 

Implications - There is a high demand for clothing lines designed by celebrities, as well as for unusual clothing. People are always looking to not just look good but to stand out from others. Fashion designers can collaborate with celebrities to create new lines of clothing based on any iconic costumes worn by their stars. Stats for Cutout and Mesh Apparel Trending: Older & Chilly
