After weeks of controversy and a cancelled launch event in the wake of Barneys New York’s racial profiling allegations, the limited-edition holiday collaboration Jay Z created with the retailer dropped on Wednesday night. And who was the first woman to get her hands on (and take Instagram photos in) the BNY SCC line, you ask? Beyoncé, of course.
Bey dropped by the Barneys flagship to check out the goods completely decked out in her hubby’s wares, specifically a leather Moncler varsity jacket that retails for $2,295 and a leather and python Brooklyn cap by Just Don that’s listed at $875. But that’s nothing: In the Instagram snap below, the singer is showing off an engraved gold double-knuckle ring by Los Angeles-based jeweler Hoorsenbuhs that Barneys is selling for a whopping $12,500.
Yes, these pieces are pretty expensive, but keep in mind you’re shopping for a good cause: Barneys is donating 100% of all proceeds from the BNY SCC collection to Jay Z’s Shawn Carter Foundation. Plus, you’ll get to look like Beyoncé, and you can’t put a price on that. The full collection is available on barneys.com now if you want to start dropping hints to Santa.
