Yoko Ono once gained notoriety for her experimental films that obsessively studied the butt, so when Opening Ceremony announced its menswear collaboration with Ono, we had a feeling the resulting line was going to kick some gluteus maximus. And boy were we right. Upon perusing the just-released collection, it's clear that the artist/icon/being-from-another-universe's predilection for the rear really takes center stage.



Based on a book of line drawings she gave John Lennon for their wedding, "Fashions for Men" envisions a bunch of curious, tush-focused garments. Call us conservative, but pants with cut-out butts or bright, contrasting hands on the crotch might not make the most practical of purchases - but then again, those wearing Ono's light-up man-bras probably don't have practicality on the mind. But the point is this: The project came from a conceptual sketch originating from a conceptual artist based on a very specific concept - so naturally the real-world renderings feel, well, a little out there. Even though we don't know many guys who would be excited about a butt hoodie or a chest-piece made out of plexiglass that encourages wearers to "Ring For Their Mommy Piece," the idea that a sketchbook shared between Yoko and John has been brought to life - by none other than Opening Ceremony - is charming...electric nipples and all.
