Jay Z's Cutler and Gross sunglasses

Life must be pretty good for Jay Z. When he's not overseeing the domination of the hip hop industry, playing basketball with the US President or waking up next to one of the most powerful women on the planet, he's designing Christmas collaborations for high end retail outlets.

A limited edition collection titled A New York Holiday has been unveiled at plush store Barneys New York. Overseen by Shawn ‘JAY Z’ Carter (he even gets two stage names), the collection is teaming with luxury jackets, luggage and tees - and our favourite item, these Cutler and Gross sunglasses.

The English eyewear label has hand crafted these amber mirror lenses in a black frame, with a gold-dipped temple tips featuring the collaboration's emblem.

There's an additional incentive to splash out on a pair of these $675 (£417) shades in deep winter, with all proceeds of the collection going to the Shawn Carter Foundation, a New York-based charity which awards scholarships to disadvantaged students. He's a good egg that Jay Z.
