Move this to the top of your budding holiday wishlist: Jay Z has teamed up with more than six top fashion houses for a collaboration entitled "A New York Holiday" at luxury retailer Barneys. You'll be able to shop the extravagant collection right here in Boston, and though most pieces are an ode to the Big Apple, we can't hate on this one like the Yankees. One of the blockbuster items is a Proenza Schouler-designed bag—the label's first ever men's bag.
Other heavy hitters with a hand in the line are Balenciaga, Balmain, Lanvin, Rick Owens, and Moncler. Pieces range from a $70 cotton Barneys tee to a $33,900 Shawn Carter by Hublot watch featuring alligator straps, with many styles geared towards men and several intended for unisex wear. The collab will be available on November 20, with 25% of all sales going to the Shawn Carter Scholarship Foundation.
