After two harassment claims by customers due to store employee and NYC police treatment following their purchases at BARNEYS produced a series of meetings on how to move forward, including the store CEO, Al Sharpton, NAACP, and Jay Z, a slew of new store policies, announcements by Hova, and the debut of a new series of caps by Jay Z and Just Don are out to help calm the media firestorm. It’s been a tight balancing act for Jay Z who has built his popularity by connecting with the youth in New York’s poorer neighborhoods while simultaneously building a line with one of the most luxurious department stores. In an attempt to solidify the relationship with both parties and move forward in a positive way, a new council has been created to help deal with issues of racial profiling, a 75% increase in the funds donated to the Sean Carter Foundation from the proceeds of the sales has been ordered, and the release of a series of strapback caps have arrived. Built with suede and snakeskin, these caps are just as lux as they sound, arriving with a python brim in white, red, or black with gold buckles at the back. In other words, a worthy addition to an extensive collection for the co-branded holiday line-up. Available now at Barney’s stores and online.
