Just days after Kanye West told Zane Lowe that what he really wants to do is design water bottles and high-end clothing, Jay Z has announced that he's teaming up with luxury department store Barneys to produce a holiday collection. Dubbed "A New York Holiday," the collection will be feature mix of limited-edition products that Jay has worked on with fashion world friends like Balenciaga, Stutterheim, Rick Owens, Lanvin, Balmain and Proenza Schouler, ranging from a leather backpack to an alligator-strap watch to the Proenza's first ever men's bag. The collection will go on sale November 20th, with prices starting at $70 and climbing to $33,900. 25% of proceeds will benefit the Shawn Carter Scholarship Foundation.
