Jay Z Curates Barneys Holiday Collection
By The Fashion Bomb Staff

Confirming rumors made in July, Barneys has announced their holiday collection collaborator this year will be Jay Z. Jigga, with the help of several luxury and indie labels, has created a range of holiday products under the fitting title, “A New York Holiday.”


The retailer and the rapper tapped names like Balenciaga, Rick Owens, Alexander Wang, Acne, Lanvin, and more to build a mens-focused offering with a sprinkling of gender neutral and home products. Still, it sounds like there will be several items ladies might want to snap up for themselves; Proenza Schouler designed their very first mens bag for the collection, and Balenciaga contributed a rather appealing boxy leather backpack. From Greg Chait of The Elder Statesman we get a ski mask and a colorblocked cashmere blanket, which sounds just about right for optimal snuggling. One of the most expensive items on tap is a yellow gold Hublot watch with black alligator straps and a deployment buckle for $33,900.


Jay is obviously thrilled about the collaboration: “With this project, Barneys New York and I were able to take the slickness, energy and innovation of New York City and translate that into quality, timeless pieces,” he told WWD. “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.”

“A New York Holiday” is set to drop November 20th, and will be available until January 3rd. A few items will be up for preorder prior to launch. As they have in the past, Barneys set up a little shop-in-shop to house the items, dubbed  “BNY SCC Gallery” (that’s Barney’s New York, Sean Corey Carter Gallery to you!) Barneys and Jigga will fête the unveiling with an event for the Shawn Carter Scholarship Foundation.


You can find the collection at Barneys flagships in New York, Boston, Chicago Beverly Hills, San Francisco, and at

  2. miss medusa says:

    the epitome of a sell-out!!!!!!!!!

  3. Carebear says:

    How is he a sell-out? @Miss Medusa….
    The hate is so real. Anyway, big-ups to Jigga, keep making money and keeping the haters mad!!!

  4. JayMilz says:

    @Miss Medusa thumbs up he is a sell out!

  5. special zebra says:

    whatever. he is laughing all the way to the bank.

  6. Maya says:

    How is he a sellout? I’d truly like to know. No one goes into rapping to be poor or not advance. Jay-Z is a mogul and this just seems like another feather in his mogul hat. If he is indeed a sellout I think it happen waaaaaaay before this collaboration with Barneys – like when he stopped selling drugs to be A RAPPER or more recently on Watch the Throne all he did was flaunt his wealth, same with MCHG. I’m not mad at his hustle, at all. Get it Jigga!! Everybody else gets to do it – why not him? He can rap about Tom Ford and curate a collection with Rick Owens. BOSS.

  7. A says:

    Was he a sell out when he started roca fella clothing?

  8. Sasha says:

    How is being a smart businessman a sellout?? People can say some unnecessary shit sometimes…smh.

  9. mel says:

    a sellout….i’m confused. How is he a sellout. I would LOVE to have a collection or a collaboration with Barney’s. That is aserious accomplishment. What is wrong with you guys? SMH

  10. miss medusa says:

    first off, everything he does is short term. he aint got a business that would last to give to his daughter and her progeny like them white folk! and he’s not a sell-out for the Barney’s thing…i just think he’s a sell-out! how bout investing in better education for melanin-rich children! starting his own universities and building businesses to employ “black” college graduates! him and Oprah can suck an egg! SELL-OUTS!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!

  11. Miss j says:

    Hmmm I guess somebody needs to do better research on jayz cause he does have a college foundation the Shawn and Gloria carter foundation . Jayz is no SELL OUT he is doing his thing period indeed keep getting paid and haters keeps hating

  12. Mel says:

    S/o to Hov for expanding his bank. How about we ask Jay Z to start businesses that employs people in general. Oh wait, he did, Roc Nation, Rocawear, Roc Nation Sports, etc… but I’m sleep though.

  13. Tia says:

    ^^^YES YOU ARE!

    He is indeed a sell out! CAPECHE

  14. Hana says:

    He the ish let him be.

  15. Red says:

    let that man be great… & stay employed. this man’s complete body of work, prophesized every business venture; starting w/ 1995′s “in my lifetime.” selling out insinuates contradicting ones beliefs &/or way of life, for a more fincially, politically, spiritually, etc., lucrative way of life. there’s been contradiction in his hustle. hustling is not subjective; it’s colorblind, & morally self endulgent. aside from the rush; a drug dealer, rapper, buisness man’s motivation is money from all sources.

    sidenote: never lose sight that, “brooklyn keeps on taking it.”


  16. Red says:

    correction: there’s been ‘no contradiction’ in his hustle…

  17. Crklynking says:

    Jayz won’t give me a job whaaa, jayz won’t raise my kids boohoo, jayz and Oprah refuse to be my savior, get over yourself. Jayz owes no one but his who chooses. You love the ghetto jayz, the drug dealing and hustling jayz but the mogul jayz is a sellout? Crabs in a barrel

  18. Kyle says:

    I don’t know the Man.. But, some of you should live so long.. To be considered A Sell-Out.. What, he was lucky to have the Opportunity to have gotten out of The Marcy..

    You wouldn’t be happy, unless HE CONTINUED to live in the Projects and Sold Drugs.. That’s why Black people will never have anything, because you are so quick to be jealous and Hateful to someone, who saw an opportunity and he took it..

    Sell Out, My Ass, he and his wife work had.. If you weren’t so jealous and had some aspirations. You wouldn’t be throwing shade..

    You may not like them, but, if your not just a Hater.. You have to respect the hustle..

  19. Socialecircle says:


    Yes!!!!! Very well put. And that side note. On point!!!
    Shout out to hov!!!!

  20. Socialecircle says:

    Quit the crying complaining. Boo hoo’s already!!!!

    - already home
