Yoko Ono x Opening Ceremony Men's Collection: WTF?

The "Fashions for Men: 1969-2012" YOKO ONO and Opening Ceremony limited-edition collection was released this week and features some really avant-garde (aka zany) street wear items for dudes.

According to the OC press release, the line is based on a collection of hand-drawn illustrations that Yoko presented to John Lennon on the occasion of their wedding. 43 years later, Yoko and OC have worked together to bring her nipple-and-butt-loving sketches to life. 

 This collection is definitely breaking some dressing/social mores as for the most part it's always been socially acceptable for women to wear more sexually-suggestive and revealing clothing, and not so much for the boys. With the details in this men's collection like the hard-not-to-miss crotch-grab print, or the mesh cutout pants that peeps one's buttcrack and then some, or even the lightbulb tube bra that accentuates the nipples, Yoko and OC are now letting men to dress like a slut or a gay prostitute that walks the streets in Miami's Wynwood art district.

The collection is now available at OC US stores and online at "Fashions for Men: 1969-2012" will be available at the Tokyo store (Shibuya Seibu Movida) on December 9, 2012, and the London store on November 30, 2012. 

Items from the collection (which also includes footwear, a book w/ CD and posters) range from $25-$750.
