Jay Z collaborated with creative directors from top fashion houses to create the products, including Balenciaga, Balmain, Lanvin, Proenza Schouler and more. The items have a color palette of black, white, gold and silver. 25% of sales from the items will be donated to the Shawn Carter Foundation.

Jay Z said in a statement, "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. 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."
