Fashion Me Dope: Jay-Z Wearing A $560 Givenchy Star Striped Red & Black Cotton Jersey Sweater

The Barclays Center is now open! A couple of months ago, while the Brooklyn Nets new home was still under construction, my idol Jay-Z gave T Magazine an inside look at the arena that he brought to his stomping grounds. Jay was photo’d in a Givenchy’s Star Striped Red & Black Cotton Jersey which is from their Fall/Winter 2012 collection. This ‘American Dream’ inspired sweater feature black and red stripes, circled star applique around the neck and ribbed trim. You can purchase it at Mr Porter for $560. Last weekend, NFL player Victor Cruz of the New York Giants wore this sweater to the opening night of Jay-Z’s concert at the Barclays Center. MMG rapper Meek Mill also wore this sweater in DJ Drama’s “My Moment” visual.

As the Jiggaman hits the midweek mark in his eight-day christening of the Barclays Center in Brooklyn, we thought it only appropriate to unveil a short film by Cass Bird featuring the Bed-Stuy-born rapper bopping about the stadium as it rose,” said T Magazine.
