For all of you Jay-Z fans out there, I know what you’re thinking…. why is there another rapper attempting to be a fashion superstar. But unlike Kanye (West), Mr. Shawn Carter didn’t risk his chances by designing the clothes all on his own, instead he hit up the biggest names in fashion to create the designs for the collaboration. Ofcourse with designers helping out with the likes of Lanvin, Rick Owens, Balmain, Moncler, Cutler & Gross, Hublot, The Elder Statesmen, ACNE Studios… just to name a few the musician gone designer has actually made a collection worth remembering. Well there is one hitch – unlike the; Isabel Marant for H&M, RW&CO + Hayden Christensen, the Barney’s + Jay-Z combination is priced for only the rich. The price ranges from a $70 t-shirt to a $58,000 dollar crocodile skin jacket.
On a real note, for a man who probably is well invested in high fashion, he succeeded in creating a line of menswear which was almost perfect – in terms of the youth inspired street style for the casual wear – and the lux detailing for the formal wear. Kanye can definitely take some notes to how Jay created such a great collection.
