Dads: notoriously hard to shop for. Luckily, this holiday season, those rumors that Jay Z might to team up with Barneys are true! AND Hov asked some of his fave designers to design exclusive pieces for his “New York Holiday” collection. So long, ties! See ya, shaving kits! Hello, Balmain scarves and Balenciaga leather backpacks. Jay tapped a number of high fashion labels including Lanvin, Rick Owens, Proenza Schouler, and Acne to design pieces in a black, white, gold, and silver color scheme. Subtle, but shiny. Jay also designed some collection pieces, including watches timepieces, and a cigar box humidor.

The collection will be in stores starting on November 20th, and in New York, it’ll be presented in the BNY SCC Gallery. See, you’re not buying any old stuff, you’re buying art. #picassobaby The collection will also be available online and in stores across the country, but the New York store will be the only store with interactive holiday windows and the Jay Z designed gallery. The preview images have featured mostly unisex items (with masculine leanings) so far, but we’re hoping for some women’s stuff (because you know Beyonce had to have some input, right?), but will settle for dipping into the men’s stuff, if we must.
