Barneys New York is giving us something to look forward to this holiday season. The luxury department store has teamed up with Jay Z to a holiday gallery space. Jay Z worked with Balmain, Balenciaga, Proenza Schouler, Lanvin, Rick Owens, Moncler, and many other big name designers to develop products for the collection, “A New York Holiday.” He chose a theme of black, white, gold, and silver which compares to his own personal minimalist style. And the Balenciaga leather backpack has Jay Z written all over it. Some of the other pieces include a sleek raincoat with gold buttons by Stutterheim, a Shawn Carter by Hublot alligator strapped watch, and an 18-karat-gold double ring with chain-lock detail by Hoorsenbuhs. Since the holidays are all about giving, it’s not a surprise that Jay Z is using this collaboration to give back. Jay Z has decided to give twenty-five percent of sales from the collection will go to his charity, the Shawn Carter Scholarship Foundation. The collection features pieces that start at $70 and some jewelry pieces reach up to $33,000. Jay Z’s collection will be revealed in stores on November 20th.
