Barneys New York has teamed up with the rapper Shawn “Jay Z” Carter for a holiday gallery space. Ja Z worked with top designers Balmain, Balenciaga, Proenza Schouler, Lanvin, Rick Owens, Moncler, and many more to develop products for the collection: “A New York Holiday”.
“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,” Carter 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.”.
