BOOM! Those guys at Opening Ceremony have dropped another collaboration on us and it can’t get more iconic than living legend Yoko Ono producing a menswear collection inspired by John Lennon’s ‘hot bod’ can it? The answer is no, obviously! Yoko recently revealed to Vogue that she always travels with a room full of clothes and the lady clearly knows her fabrics.

The collection, Fashions for Men: 1969-2012, is based on a compilation of hand-drawn illustrations presented to John Lennon by Yoko on the occasion of their wedding. Forty-three years later, OC and Yoko have worked together to bring a select group of these drawings to life, creating unisex apparel, footwear, and accessories in exclusive editions of only 52 pieces, as well as a limited run of sweatshirts, and posters featuring ONO’s artwork.

Due to land in the US on November 27th and then in London in early December, Yoko will be at OC’s Howard Street store on the 27th. Conceptual art has never been so bang on trend.

The Duffy Diaries

27.03.2012 | Art , Blog , Fashion | BY:

From portraits to reportage and award-winning advertisements to Pirelli calendars, the images of Brian Duffy are an iconic documentation of decades past. Now the Proud Chelsea gallery is making a tribute to the photography legend, who passed away in 2010, by displaying a rare collection of his signed prints.

Starting his career in the Fifties as a freelance photographer for Harper’s Bazaar, Duffy went on to photograph the likes of Jean Shrimpton, John Lennon and David Bowie, most memorably for the cover of his Aladdin Sane album.

Duffy, alongside David Bailey and Terence Donovan – nicknamed the Terrible Trio by British press – innovated the style of documentary fashion photography by capturing the zeitgeist of Swinging London in the Sixties.

After making the decision to abandon still photography, the English photographer and film producer famously attempted to burn all of his negatives in 1979. Fortunately, a few priceless artifacts remain, making this exhibition both a poignant photographic homage and an unmissable visual experience.

Duffy: The Lost Portraits is on display until May 13 at Proud Chelsea, 161 King”s Road  London SW3 5XP.
