In the wake of a racial profiling scandal at Barneys New York, a lot of discussion has been going on around the new collaboration between the department store and rapper Jay Z, specifically whether or not the collaborative collection should actually release. In the meantime, Barneys has put new policies into place and has created a special council “specifically convened to deal with the issue of racial profiling.” Furthermore rather than only putting 25% of the sale of the Jay Z x Barney’s New York collection into the Shawn Carter Foundation, 100% of the proceeds of the sale will be donated.
This weekend the Jay Z x Just Don caps from the collection have released. The caps feature suede or leather uppers with tonal star embroideries and of course a python brim and matching back strap. Exclusive to Barneys, you can shop the caps now here for $695 USD.
