"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.

Some items featured in the collection will be a black leather backpack by Alexander Wang for Balenciaga, a cashmere blanket by the Elder Statesman, a men's bag by Proenza Schouler and a Shawn Carter by Hublot watch featuring black alligator straps that sells for a cool $33,900. 

A Barneys cotton T-shirt will be included on the less expensive end, running at $70.

The campaign will launch on November 20th, and will be featured in the Manhattan, Beverly Hills, San Francisco, Boston and Chicago stores.

“Santa Monica”

Everclear | 1996

After his brother and girlfriend both died of drug overdoses, Art Alexakis -- depressed and hooked on drugs himself -- jumped off the Santa Monica Pier in California, determined to die. "It was really stupid," said the Everclear frontman, who would further explore his personal emotional journey in the song "Father of Mine." "I went under the water. Then I said, 'I don't wanna die.'" The song, declaring "Let's swim out past the breakers/and watch the world die," was intended as a manifesto for change, Alexakis said. "Let the world do what it's gonna do and just live on our own."
