Expect a very, very hip spin on the holidays this seson at Barney's. The legendary style store is teaming up with multi-millionaire and hip hop mogul, Shawn Corey Carter, better known as Jay-Z
, to create a new collaborative collection, "A New York Holiday." Jay-Z will work with fashion designers, Lanvin, Balenciaga, Proenza Schouler
, Balmain, and The Elder Statesmen on the collection.
Jay-Z has infused his own style into the collection as he worked alongside the designers to create custom pieces that have quintessential qualities that speak to New York. "We decided that we wanted our holiday to center around New York City
, but not New York in the literal sense — New York as the creative and cultural epicenter of the world. We wanted to capture the energy, its stories, the art, the fashion, its people," said Mark Lee, chief executive officer of Barneys
told Women's Wear Daily.
