Disney Goes Couture with Barneys' Holiday CollectionMichelle Horton
The high-end department store Barneys is teaming up with Disney for the ultimate in high-fashion holiday celebration.
Not only did some of the top fashion labels design outfits specifically for the classic characters (that’s a slimmed-down Minnie wearing Lanvin — someone get her a mouskaburger!), but there’ll be a holiday extravaganza called “Electric Holiday” starting in mid-Novemeber. Barney’s flagship store on Madison Avenue will have an electric light show (a la Disney World’s Main Street) and a short film featuring the dolled-up Mickey gang in designer duds.
And of course we can expect limited-edition holiday items from the likes of Diane von Furstenberg and Rag & Bone.
Take a look at what the equally emanciated Daisy and Goofy are wearing for the occasion:
That’s Daisy looking absolutely famished in Dolce & Gabbana, and Goofy withering away in Balmain. No word yet on the condition of the rest of the Mousakateer gang — but we suspect Donald has succumbed to one too many hot dogs.
Expect to see more news as the holidays approach, and you might want to swing by Madison Avenue in November if you’ll be in the area. I know I’ll be there.
