Shawn “JAY Z” Carter and Rick Owens = OMG
Well, I know you have been looking forward to Jay Z's collection at Barney's New York! Like all the hip hop artists these days, it seems like whatever these guys touch, it turns into gold. For example, Kanye's collaboration with A.P.C. was sold out in within one day and crashed A.P.C.'s website. But I digress. Jay Z, of course, had to out do Kanye. He's collaborating with brands such as Rick Owens, Moncler, Lanvin, Balmain, etc. (basically all my fav brands). The proceeds are being donated 100% to his charity. But you gotta have a pretty deep pocket to get your hands on this collaboration. Prices range from an affordable Barney's New York T for $70 to eye-popping Rick Owens Mollino Crocodile Jacket for a cool $58,000 (slightly out of my price range... just slightly.. lol)!!! In case you are wondering who's crazy enough to spend that much money on a jacket, let's just say S, L, XL are all sold out. But if you are a M or a XXL, you are in luck... provided that you move fast and have some serious dough.
Update (Dec 20): Just came across Barney's dedicated page to Jay Z's collection. Apparently this $58k jacket is sold out!
