I'm officially embarassed by the extent to which I was looking forward to seeing Yoko Ono's "Fashions for Men" Opening Ceremony collaboration, because it's up online and it's well … no one's ever going to wear this outside ever, I'm pretty sure / Ireallyhope.
As we learned together last week, the collection was created from a series of sketches Yoko gave John Lennon as a wedding present in 1969. “I was inspired to create ‘Fashions for Men’ amazed at how my man was looking so great," she told WWD. "I felt it was a pity if we could not make clothes emphasizing his very sexy bod." Well, Lennon may be long gone, but the sketches have finally been realized, hypothetically giving today's young men the chance to show off their sexy bods. Ew except ew. I still can't get over the phrase "sexy bod" and also you have a lot of personality to pull off those crotch-handprint pants. Or that male brassiere. Um, godspeed to anyone that dares try. I beam my love your way.
The collection ranges from $55 for Printed Kneepads to $145 for a Neon Pink Mesh Shirt to $750 for the Open-Toe Thigh High Boots.
