Fashions for Men: 1969-2012 is a collection from Yoko Ono x Open Ceremony that focuses on and emphasizes the delectable parts of the male physique. Inspired by appealing bodies of attractive men (more specifically John Lennon’s hot bod), Yoko Ono created a multitude of pieces with kitschy details.

These pieces are bold, in-your-face garments that are going to get more than a few stares. Vinyl hand prints are sewn onto the crotches of the bottoms, causing many wandering eyes to drift to the lower section of the male anatomy. There are also playful hands that appear on the rear. Pants are cut out by the knees, or the upper thigh. Yoko Ono's collection includes bright pink mesh shirts and hoodies with cheeky chest designs.

The ideas for the Yoko Ono x Open Ceremony collection originally came from hand-drawn illustrations that Ono made specifically to show John Lennon in 1969.
