Jay Z is teaming up with Barneys this holiday season for a limited-edition of apparel and accessories. I know what you are thinking, we are barely into fall weather! But walk into any store this week and you’ll see the holiday trees, Halloween costumes, and perhaps a few Santa hats.
The new collection, “BNY SCC Gallery” brings eye-catching themed window decorations, a big ‘ole party (hopefully they won’t loose my invite this time), and special-edition merchandise from our favorites like Lanvin, Proenza Schouler, and Balenciaga. This is all speculation from Women’s Wear Daily; they are kinda the Fashion Bible so I believe them.
“With this project, Barney’s New York and I were able to take the slickness, energy and innovation of New York City and translate that into quality, timeless pieces,” Jay Z said.
I am confronted in the fact that although I cannot afford a Hublot watch with an alligator strap, I wouldn’t dare spend $33,900 for any one item of jewelry that cannot walk or talk. But what you might be here for is a $70 cotton T-shirt. #KanyeShrug.
Pictures of what we may be able to gawk over are forthcoming and I can promise you they’ll be just as lavish as Blue Ivy’s nursery. The campaign will launch on November 20th, and will be featured in the Manhattan, Beverly Hills, San Francisco, Boston and Chicago stores.

1. When She Taught Us The Word "Bootylicious"
Back in her Destiny’s Child days, Beyonce was the queen of creating new trends and making it cool to be curvy yet sexy. In 2001, Beyonce co-wrote the song, “Bootylicious”, giving curvaceous women everywhere the confidence to embrace their big hips, thighs and of course, their booty. The song and word caused such a phenomenon in popular culture that it was actually added to the Oxford English Dictionary in 2008 with the definition: "sexually attractive, sexy; shapley” – and we owe it all to Beyonce and Destiny’s Child!
2. When She Helped Us Get Through A Bad Breakup With "Irreplaceable"
After Beyonce gave us the confidence to embrace our curves, she helped us get through bad breakups by teaching us the exact direction to tell our exes to go, “to the left, to the left”. Beyonce released “Irreplaceable” off of her 2006 album, “B-Day” and gave newly single women everywhere an anthem to deal with the breakdown of a relationship with an unfaithful partner and feel empowered to move on.
3. When She Gave Us A Single Girl's Anthem With "Single Ladies (Put A Ring On It)"
Not only did Beyonce help us get through a bad breakup, but she gave us a single girl’s anthem as well! Of course, I’m talking about none other than “Single Ladies (Put A Ring On It”.
4. When She Made A "Gangsta Rapper" Fall In Love
If any of you were Jay Z fans prior to his relationship with Beyonce, then you’re familiar with this popular lyric, “me give my heart to a woman? Not for nothing, never happen. I’ll be forever macking”. I think it was safe to say that before Beyonce, Jay Z was living his everyday life like he was always on the set of the “Big Pimpin’” music video. Enter Beyonce and all of her female empowerment ways and Jay was quick to retire his pimp card and have “the hottest chick in the game wearing his chain”. Now, the duo is the biggest couple in hip-hop, with sold out concerts, hit records and an heir to the throne, Blue Ivy.
5. When She Announced She Was Pregnant
Speaking of Blue Ivy, Beyonce had the best pregnancy announcement of all time (in my Kanye West voice). During her performance of “Love on Top” at the 2011 MTV VMA awards, Beyonce announced to the world that she was with child after dropping the microphone, pulling back her blazer and rubbing her growing baby bump!
6. When She Got Sexy For "GQ" Magazine
Beyonce’s GQ photo spread for her Superbowl Halftime Performance was probably her sexiest look, ever! While prancing around in a cropped football jersey and sexy lingerie for the magazine’s cover, Bey let the world know that she’s capable of still being incredibly sexy while holding the title of a wife and mother. Touché Beyonce, Touché.
7. When She Gave Us A Destiny's Child Reunion At Her 2013 Superbowl Halftime Performance
Of course, we all love Beyonce, but we all miss Michelle and Kelly and the Destiny’s Child era as well. Luckily for us, at this year’s Superbowl Halftime Show, not only did Beyonce give us the performance of her life, she also gave us a Destiny’s Child reunion that we’ve been waiting for!
