Even if you don’t live in the Empire State, you can still look like you stepped off the streets of NYC. Barneys New York, the well known department store, has teamed up with Shawn “Jay Z” Carter to release a new collaboration called “A New York Holiday.” The collection will be sold for a limited time at Barneys flagship stores nationwide, as well as online, from November 3 until January 3.
The line will include pieces from popular high-end brands, like Rick Owens, Balmain, and Moncler, who all worked with the artist on custom pieces. Like most of the stuff Carter creates (music, contemporary art, etc.), these items don’t disappoint – the leather backpack and alligator-strap watch will most definitely be on our holiday wish lists this year. The key word being wish, since they’re bound to sell out in no time.
While some items will retail at an affordable $70, the price range is little crazy, with the highest priced piece going for a whopping $33,900. As you empty out your pockets for a part of fashion history, it’ll help to know that your hard-earned pennies aren’t just going toward a diamond-encrusted Rolex for Blue Ivy. Jay Z’s Shawn Carter Scholarship Foundation, which will be celebrating its tenth anniversary this year, will receive 25% of all sales.
