The collection of clothing and accessories chosen by the rapper and retailer is meant to “bring together the art, the fashion, the industry … the very energy New York was built on.”
We’ll give Jay credit for donating 100% of sales to his charity, the Shawn Carter Foundation, but the items he has curated would look simply ridiculous on 99% of the general population.
And before you buy those leather jogging shorts, $US1,000 T-shirt, or that vinyl tie, just remember — “Due to the exclusivity of these limited edition items, all sales are final. No returns or exchanges.”
Now, let’s take a look at what Jay Z wants you to be wearing this holiday season.
Welcome to “A New York Holiday”!
Need a leather “mixed exotics” baseball cap? It will only set you back $US875.
How about $US675 plain black sunglasses?
Or this $US750 Balmain T-SHIRT that looks like it came from Michael Jackson’s garage sale?
What about this Balmain T-shirt could possibly cost $US995?
Uh oh, $2,590 LEATHER BOXING SHORTS? Embroidered with gold cross things?? Were these Kanye’s idea?
A $US560 vinyl coated tie — just what Dad always wanted!
Everyone needs a $US1,275 fleece hoodie, right? Those leather cutouts are totally worth it.
$150 perfumed with Jay Z’s name on it? Only worth it if the scent attracts your very own Beyoncé.
And everyone needs a $US695 cashmere ski mask that makes you look like a bank robber.
But Jay Z did get Beyoncé to try it on …
As well as this $US2,295 Moncler leather sleeve puffer varsity jacket. And nothing says love like a $US12,500 New York City Ring.
We didn’t even show you all of the crazy items currently for sale on the Barneys website. To see Jay Z’s full collection, click here >
