What:
A tribute to John Lennon in the form of ultra limited edition cashmere sweaters emblazoned with either John Lennon’s 1971 self-portrait (which also hangs in the collection of New York’s MoMA) or the original handwritten lyrics to Imagine. Only 100 of the 2-ply cashmere sweaters will be made, and each comes in a specially created box engraved with the singer’s signature.

Who:
Yoko Ono is the driving force behind this homage to John Lennon, and called on her friend Patrick Lifshitz, the founder of Paris-based Hobbs cashmere.

Why:
To commemorate the 30th anniversary of John Lennon’s death, “the day the music died”. “Yoko said she would like John’s art to be recognized. He was not just a singer, he was also an artist. John had lots of skills,” says Lifshitz. “This is really a tribute to John.”

When:
On sale now until the 100 pieces of each design sell out.
