For the upcoming holiday season, Jay Z teamed up with Barneys New York on a collection titled “A New York Holiday.” For the collaboration, the New York rapper worked with renowned designers and brands to create a collection of limited-edition products that represent the American city as the creative and cultural epicenter of the world.
The collection includes a black leather backpack from Balenciaga, a black square-print scarf from Balmain, a hoodie from Rick Owens, a tailored jacket from Lanvin, a black leather duffel with faux crocodile trim from Proenza Schouler, and an 18-karat-gold double ring from Hoorsenbuhs. Keeping the coloring options rather muted, Jay Z conceived the entire range within a white, black, silver and gold color scheme.
The exclusive designs will be on sale November 20 through January 3 at Barneys flagship stores in New York, Beverly Hills, San Francisco, Boston and Chicago, alongside the shop’s webstore. A limited quantity of pieces will be available for pre-order prior to the November 20 launch at the webstore. 25% of all sales from the project will go toward the Shawn Carter Scholarship Foundation.
