Jay Z Launching Holiday Collection At Barneys New York
Jay Z already has plenty of cake, but, why not get more? Hov plans on raising even more chips before the year is out with the launch of a limited edition clothing and apparel collection at luxury department store Barneys New York. The collection will feature collaborations with Lanvin, Balenciaga, Balmain, Proenza Schouler, Rick Owens and Moncler. According to Hov, every piece was made with his hometown New York City in mind. “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,” said Jay about the collab. “Everything that encompasses ‘A New York Holiday’—the items chosen, the amazing designers that participated, the windows, the design of the BNY SCC Gallery—represents a perfect example of a unique and groundbreaking collaboration that I hope demonstrates how inspiring New York has been to me.” You can catch the threads from November 20th through January 2, 2014. Twenty-five percent of the proceeds will go to the Shawn Carter Scholarship Foundation.
