If ever there were a moment when you know you’ve reached the big time it’s getting “cartooned” by Disney. For Barneys New York Christmas windows this year we knew something special was in store. What we didn’t know was that it would feature characters like Bryanboy, Suzy Menkes, Cathy Horyn and Lady Gaga, all transformed into cartoons. This is brilliant on another level. You may remember a few months ago I shared a first look at the campaign. We were told that the story behind the Disney x Barneys New York collaboration centred on Minnie Mouse dreaming of being a part of the high flying fashion world. The story, and all it’s intricate parts, will be revealed on Wednesday complete with Goofy in Balmain and Daisy Duck in Dolce & Gabbana. However, WWD have this morning shared a sneak peek at what we can expect to see. Whatever else you expected to encounter this Holiday season, this is above and beyond every expectation.
Pat McGrath is cartooned so she can powder Minnie Mouse’s nose, Anna Dello Russo makes an appearance on the red carpet, Steven Meisel photographs Minnie and big names such as Sarah Jessica Parker, Naomi Campbell, Daphne Guinness and Emanuelle Alt all sit on the front row for the Disney Catwalk debut.
I am litterally sitting here with my jaw on the floor. Has there ever been anything so fantastic?!
