CULTURE | Jay Z Partners with Barneys New York

  Barneys New York is partnering with hip hop icon Jay Z to create its annual holiday collection.  Dubbed 
 "A New York Holiday" this collaboration will have Jay Z working with designers to create special-edition merchandise.    

  Last year's theme was all about Disney and the year before it was Lady Gaga.  This time around Jay Z worked with several designers including Lanvin, Balenciaga, Balmain, Rick Owens and Proenza Schouler to create special edition items.  The pieces are high-end designer items ranging in price from $70 up to $33, 900.  You find everything from a leather backpack from Balenciaga to a cashmere blanket by Elder Statesman, a Barney's T-shirt and a Shawn Carter by Hublot watch with alligator straps.  Twenty-five percent of sales will go to Jay Z's Shawn Carter Scholarship Foundation.  
  "A New York Holiday" will be available online and in-store at Barney's starting November 20, 2013.
