The much anticipated, and now controversial, Jay Z x Barneys NY “A New York Holiday” collection is here. We’ll just go ahead and say this is a luxe as luxe gets, with all the implications that that statement involves. The prices are ridiculously expensive, and your yearly income might have to reach at least the high six-figures to afford some of these goods.
The lowest priced item is a Barneys NY T-shirt, which is at an attainable $70.The highest priced item is a Rick Owens Mollino Crocodile Jacket topping at a shoppers guilt price of—wait for it—$58,000. That is a shitload of money.
All in all, the collection will set you back $155,003 if you cop every item. Multiply that with all the available stock, and you can probably purchase a small mansion in Miami. While much of the items’ prices are geared more for the one percent bracket, it’s actually a good thing. That money isn’t adding to the knots in Jay Z’s pocket, but instead will be donated to the Shawn Carter Foundation, as per Jay Z's request.
