Barney’s of New York has paved the way in window dressing for years. Their over-the-top, avant-garde displays have inspired me time and time again. Now, they’ve teamed up with Disney to create a holiday theme called “Electric Holiday”. The inspiration comes from Disney’s electrical parade and shows our favorite Disney icons in the fashion world. The project is a three-dimensional short film which tells the story about Minnie Mouse’s fantasy to be at the Paris shows. She runs into her pals, Goofy, Daisy Duck , Cruella de Vil, Princess Tiana and Snow White. All of the characters are styled in designer clothes as they walk the cat walk. The windows will unveil on Nov. 14th at their flagship store in New York City surrounded by flashing lights and paparazzi.
Barney’s will offer a limited collection of holiday items like Vinylmation figures designed by Paul Smith and Diane von Furstenberg and Mickey Mouse ears from Rag & Bone. They will also donate 25% of the proceeds from the Electric Holiday sales to a charity they will announce soon.
OK- who is going with me to New York? Email or text me and let’s get a group of kindred spirits to fly to the “Big Apple” in the name of fashion. Because life is too short to miss out on Goofy’s (and the other Disney characters) debut as a runway model.
