Yoko Ono raises eyebrows with risque menswear collection

Yoko Ono has launched a new menswear collection for trendy New York design label, Opening Ceremony.

The collection is dedicated to her late husband, ex-Beatle member John Lennon, based on a series of sketches Ono gave to Lennon as a wedding gift in 1969.

But the suggestive designs for men has raised some eyebrows.

Some items feature see-through mesh tops and pants with cut-outs at the thighs.

Also featuring prominently in the collection are pants with handprints on the crotch area, and a "butt hoodie" - a regular hoodie with an outline shape of its namesake printed on the front, CBS news reported.

"I was inspired to create Fashions For Men, amazed at how my man was looking so great. I felt it was a pity if we could not make clothes emphasising his very sexy bod," Ono, 79, said in a statement.

"So, I made this whole series with love for his hot bod, and gave it to him as a wedding present."

According to reports, the collection ranges from $25 for a poster to $200 for a jock strap or $750 for boots, and there will only be 52 made of each piece.

Would you wear Yoko Ono's latest collection for men?
