Jay Z For Barneys Holiday Collection

That's right! Jay Z is collaborating with Barneys for their 2013 holiday collection "A New York Holiday."How fitting?!
One of our favorite retailers, Barneys, and of course one of our favorite businessmen, Jay Z, will be bringing you swag from the Empire State this holiday season. These two forces have joined together to bring you limited edition items from designers such as Lanvin, Balenciaga, Balmain, Rick Owens and Proenza Schouler

Jay Z spoke with Women's Wear Daily about this project: 

"With this project, Barneys New York and I were able to take the slickness, energy and innovation of New York City and translate that into quality, timeless pieces. Everything that encompasses ‘A New York Holiday’ — the items chosen, the amazing designers that participated, the windows, the design of the BNY SCC(Barneys New York Sean Corey Carter) Gallery — represents a perfect example of a unique and groundbreaking collaboration that I hope demonstrates how inspiring New York has been to me.”

The collection is said to include items such as leather backpacks, an alligator-strap watch, a cotton t shirts, and a cashmere blanket. The collection will be released online and in stores beginning November 20, 2013 and will be available until January 3, 2014. Twenty five percent of the sales from the collection will go to Jay's Sean Carter Scholarship Foundation


Be on the lookout for items that will be available for preorder!
