For their recent “A New York Holiday” collaboration Jay Z and luxury retail giant Barneys enlisted some of the worlds top houses as well as up-and-coming brands to design unique luxe pieces inspired by the Hip Hop veteran. With houses such as Balmain, Acne Studios, the Elder Statesmen and En Noir producing pieces for the collection, all proceeds raised will be donated to the Shawn Carter Foundation. As a part of this endeavour, avant-garde designer Rick Owens was recruited to create a unique take on his now-iconic asymmetrical leather jackets, retailing at a staggering $58, 000. The Mollino Crocodile leather jacket is styled with Owens’ signature leather cuts and exceptional tailoring. Lined with silk blend twill and made in Italy, the jacket is available for purchase from Barneys’ online store.
