Barneys New York decided to team up with Mr Carter to celebrate the spirit of the Big Apple. A New York Holiday collection will featured a limited and exclusive edition of products from renowned fashion brands. It will include Lavin, Balenciaga, The Elder Statesman, En Noir, Hoorsenbuhs, Proenza Schouler, Rick Owens, Stutterheim, Acne Studios, and many more. The products will be available on November 20th and will be displayed at the Barneys New York SCC gallery. Indeed, Barneys New York will donate 25% of the sales to the Shawn Carter foundation.

“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,” said Mr. Carter. “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.” – The Window
I will never get tired of this song, let’s listen to it:
“New York, concrete jungle where dreams are made of
There’s nothin’ you can’t do
Now you’re in New York
These streets will make you feel brand new
Big lights will inspire you
Let’s hear it for New York, New York,
Empire State of Mind, Jay-z featuring Alicia Keys
