Jay-Z wants to help you ring in the upcoming holiday season by teaming up with Barney’s New York to offer up a new Winter 2013 Collection for all to enjoy. Dubbed “A New York Holiday,” the rapper works with a series of top designers and brands to create a range of limited-edition products within a collection that represents the Big Apple for the diverse, creative, and flashy city that it is. Comprised of a black leather bag from Balenciaga, a Balmain black square-print scarf, a Rick Owens hoodie, a tailored Lanvin jacket, and a black leather duffel from Proenza Schouler with a slick faux crocodile trim, the collection brings out the best from all players involved, but the highlight of the release has to be the 18-karat-gold double ring fashioned with the team from Hoorsenbuhs. And, if you need another reason to cop, 25% of all profits will go to the Shawn Carter Scholarship Foundation, which is in keeping with the holiday spirit. The collection will launch on November 20 at the Barney’s Madison Avenue location, but if you can’t make it there a limited number of pieces will be available for purchase online.
Release Date: November 20, 2013 (Wednesday)
