Christmas countdown has finally began and we couldn’t be happier! Barneys New York seems to share this excitement and we’ ve got proof: A beautiful animated short story; ”Electric Holiday”, created by New York’s famous department store in collaboration with Walt Disney Company, has come to add to our anticipation.
Imagine a fairy tale that combines our two favourite things: Disney characters and, of course, fashion. Minnie and her beloved friends, that we all used to love when we were kids but never depicted as models (!) starring alongside the crème de la crème of fashion industry: Carine Roitfeld, Anna Dello Russo, Suzy Menkes and many many more, co-exist with Cruella de Ville, Snow White and Goofy. How amazing is this?
A wonderful party for the launch of the video took place a few days ago, in which Barneys New York took over 61st and Madison and Sarah Jessica Parker revealed this lovely creation.
Dedicate 5 minutes of your time to your inner child and let this sparkly creation swirl you into the mood for some Christmas shopping..
Oh, and last but not least, Christmas time has always been about love and caring, so keep in mind that 25% of any “Electric holiday” items sold from November 14th through January 3rd will be donated to American Red Cross disaster relief.
