You’ll have an Empire State of Mind this holiday season while shopping the collaborative line between Jay Z x Barney’s dubbed “A New York Holiday” collection. The iconic musician is collaborating with many top designers in an exclusive launch in product over the holidays (On sale Nov 20th thru Jan 3rd). Of course the participating labels are only the best, including: Lanvin, Balenciaga, Balmain, Proenza Schouler, Rick Owens and Moncler to name a few. What we love is that 25% of the sales from the collaboration go towards Jay Z’s passion project the Shawn Carter Scholarship Foundation.
“With this project, Barney's 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 Mr. Carter. “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.”
