Rick Owens Mollino Crocodile Jacket, $58,000
Can you believe this? I mean, of course you can: Blue Ivy has enough money in her college fund to purchase a small island, so it only makes perfect sense that her pops’
oh-so-controversial collection with Barneys has a coat made of the skin of Soweto child soldiers crocodile and will cost roughly two years’ rent in New York City. Keep it real: if you cop this jacket there’s a good chance you can afford to wear a solid gold shirt, own a cheetah, and other such exorbitant ridiculousness. The good news is that the “proceeds” from this collection will go straight to Shawn Carter’s foundation; the bad news is that the only thing most people are going to buy are either the $70 tee-shirt, the GOLD JAY Z cologne or maybe a pair or two of those leather shorts, so whomever benefits from that collection probably wouldn’t benefit much. But that’s the inner cheapskate in me talking.

Check the rest of the collection below, price tags and all. And if you feel like spending, head to Barneys’ e-site.
