Barneys Ad

Although Barneys was in hot water over racial profiling allegations several months ago, the high-end retailer is making strides in the LGBTQ community with their latest ad campaign, which features trans* models.

The series - shot in black and white by famed photographer Bruce Weber - features 17 models (some professional models, while others are students, activists, and musicians) dressed in designer duds and situated among their family members. Titled “Brothers, Sisters, Sons & Daughters," the images will be accompanied by interviews with the models sharing their personal stories regarding their lives as trans* people. “I hope that my photographs and films of these 17 new friends, who are transgender men and women, convey the respect I have for them and how I stand in awe of their courage to face the world,” Weber said.

Posted by Robin Paulson Categories: Celebrities, News, Sales,

Jay-ZIs trouble brewing in Barneys and Jay-Z's fashion paradise?

The high-end retailer just announced that they will no longer be throwing a fundraising party tomorrow night to celebrate the launch of their collaboration collection with the rapper. “Due to unforeseen circumstances, the event has been canceled," read a statement from Barneys.

The news comes after Jay-Z has been pressured by fans to withhold his collection with the retail store once they properly address the racial profiling allegations against them. There is no word, however, that Jay-Z had a hand in cancelling Wednesday's party.

Proceeds of the first day's sales from Jay-Z's items and ten percent of the profits from the overall store that day are intended to go towards his Shawn Carter Foundation - the same organization to which the fundraising party was intended to benefit.

To celebrate its tenth anniversary (and perhaps also in commemoration of those three, well-deserved CDFA Womenswear Designer of the Year awards), Proenza Schouler will be re-releasing their first collection, set to be sold at Barneys.

The decision to sell the slightly-altered version of their first collection at Barneys was a no-brainer for designers Lazaro Hernandez and Jack McCollough, as it was the famous retailer who had snapped up their senior thesis line back in 2003 when they were graduating from Parsons.

"There are important style contributions from almost every era. Drawing on the right references at the right time is the key," Ashley said.
