Jay Z And Barneys Showcase Really Expensive Hublot Collection
Jay Z and high end retail chain Barneys have joined forces to curate a limited edition collection titled “A New York Holiday.”
The collection features some of Jay Z’s favorite brands and is sure to have some fashionistas salivating. That is, until they see the price tag on the Hublot collection.
The black Hublot will retail for $17,900 while the yellow gold watch will be hitting for $33,900.
Yeah, I see most of you have just backed away from your laptop screen. This collection is clearly for ballers only.
Introducing “A New York Holiday,” an unprecedented collaboration celebrating the spirit of the city. As part of this event, Barneys New York and Mr. Carter have partnered with some of the most prestigious fashion houses in the world—Balenciaga, Balmain, Lanvin, The Elder Statesman, En Noir, Hoorsenbuhs, Just Don (coming soon!), Proenza Schouler, Rick Owens, Stutterheim, Acne Studios, and Cutler & Gross—to create exclusive, limited edition products inspired by New York City in a color palette of black, white, gold and silver. (Check out a sneak preview at the bottom of this post.) Beginning November 20, the products will be available in the BNY SCC Gallery, an immersive space dedicated to the partnership between Barneys New York and Shawn Corey Carter.
“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.”
