The Disney X Barneys New York holiday campaign collaborative venture, 'Electric Holiday', as feature on AR last August, has now yielded this animated sequence. The animation is set to run in Barney’s flagship store as video wallpaper to a special window installation highlighting their latest collection.
The concept for the short centres around Minnie Mouse’s fantasy to be at the Paris shows. There she comes across key Disney characters all decked out in designer clothes. Mickey is dressed by Nicolas Ghesquière for Balenciaga, Minnie by Alber Elbaz for Lanvin, Goofy by Olivier Rousteing for Balmain, Daisy by Dolce & Gabbana, Cruella by Rick Owens, Princess Tiana by Proenza Schouler and Snow White by Peter Copping for Nina Ricci. She also rubs shoulders with various fashion personalities from Linda Evangelista, Bryan Boy, Suzi Menkes, Anna Della Russo, Carine Roitfeld, to Juergen Teller, Mario Sorenti and Lady Gaga.
It's great picking out your favourite Disney characters and fashionista celebrities amongst the crowds in this incredibly detailed animated sequence. We loved seeing the Cheshire Cat sat smiling next to Naomi Campbell and Captain Hook raising an eyebrow as Cruella DeVil saunters down the catwalk, superb!
