Jay Z collaborates with Barneys
Jay Z is bringing his fashion sense to Barneys this holiday season.
The hip-hop mogul is collaborating with the swanky department store on a limited-edition holiday collection of pieces co-created by himself and top designers such as Balenciaga, Balmain, Lanvin and Proenza Schouler, Barneys announced Wednesday.
The collection draws its inspiration from New York City — Jay’s hometown — and sticks to a color palette of black, white, silver and gold.
Some pieces to look out for include a blanket from The Elder Statesman, a black leather backpack by Balenciaga and a gold double ring by Hoorsenbuhs. Prices have not been confirmed.
The collection is available Nov. 20 in a massive third-floor space at Barneys. Twenty-five percent of sales go toward the rapper’s Shawn Carter Foundation.
Two years ago, Barneys did a similar collaboration with Lady Gaga.
