Shawn Cory Carter, better known as Jay Z, has partnered with Barneys New York to create a new collection entitled, “A New York Holiday”. The limited edition pieces, which have been designed by Jay z, Balenciaga, Lanvin, Balmain, and a few others, includes watches, a humidor, a men’s raincoat, and a number of other pieces, which have all been designed in a palette of black, white, gold, and silver.
Barneys New York flagship store will have a massive window display, as well as an “immersive gallery space” that will be located on the third floor of the store. A major plus that’s coming from this collaboration is the fact that a quarter of all sales will be going to the Shawn Carter Foundation, an organization started by Jay Z that provides low-income students cover college cost.
The collection and display window will be revealed on November 20.
