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.

A fashion fave for luxe sunglasses, Linda Farrow is a must-have for the summer, or all year round for when you’re rocking the FROW. Established in the Seventies, the brand was worn by the likes of Yoko Ono and gave her that signature look. Now, 40 years on it is Tracy and Simon Jablon that are at the helm of Linda Farrow and it’s better than ever. In recent years they have collaborated with the tiptop designers including Raf Simons, Dries Van Noten, Alexander Wang, The Row and Agent Provocateur, and are available in top tier stores globally.
