(AllHipHop News) Jay Z has a history of being quite philanthropic during the Christmas holiday, including reading “How Murray Saved Christmas” to 15 inner-city fifth-graders from a Brooklyn public school. This year he’s taking his Santa act to high end fashion as he is collaborating with luxury clothing retailer, Barney’s for his first curated clothing collection.

The collection will include limited-edition products by designers such as Balenciaga, Rick Owens, Balmain,and others. Jay’s collection will include cashmere blankets and leather backpacks .

Prices for the items will range between $70 to over $33,000. While some of these garments may exceed the normal person’s budget, Santa Hov keeps his philanthropic Christmas spirit alive by giving 25 percent of sales from the collection to his Shawn Carter Scholarship Foundation.

The items will be available in Barney’s stores and online starting November 20th.
