Jay Z's Collection for Barneys Is Great If You Like $2600 Boxer ShortsDodai Stewart11/21/13 8:30pmFiled to: expensive shitjay zfashioncelebritybarneysretailshoppingracismracial profiling1051EditPromoteShare to KinjaToggle Conversation toolsGo to permalinkEven though the store has been accused of racial profiling, Jay Z launched his collection with Barneys yesterday. He didn't design the items, exactly, it's described as a "limited edition collection designed in collaboration with Shawn 'JAY Z' Carter." There are special windows in the New York store, as well as a special space: AdvertisementThe New York Holiday collection is available now in the BNY SCC Gallery, an in-store space that will offer the pieces masterminded by Shawn 'JAY Z' Carter and the likes of Balenciaga, Balmain, Lanvin, and more. The BNY SCC Gallery is a masterpiece in itself; conceived by renowned French visual artist Joanie Lemercier under the direction of Mr. Carter and Barneys New York Creative Director Dennis Freedman, the interior of the space will be projected with an original film for a 360-degree experience. The multi-dimensional film, shot over three months in Brooklyn and Manhattan, portrays spectacular visuals that take visitors through a journey from New York's underground through the city and beyond.This "journey" through the "underground" will cost you: A T-shirt is a thousand bucks, leather boxing shorts are almost $2600 (WWKWD*), and there's a watch that costs more than a car. Hova has yet to make a statement about the racial profiling debacle but the launch party for the collection was canceled. Can't have black people partying in the same place that arrests them!
