I had been refraining from posting too much Christmas-y things because I like to take it one holiday at a time, so now that Thanksgiving is over I can finally go all out with no apology.
I love Barneys and I love all things Disney. THEREFORE, my excitement level over the collaboration between the two was through the roof when I first heard of it towards the end of the summer.
I’m obsessed with the promo video, I think it’s absolutely adorable, hilarious, magical, and I just love love love it. The designers involved [Lanvin, Dolce & Gabbana, Balmain, Balenciaga, and more] really got creative and you can tell it was a fun campaign to create. Not to mention, seeing cartoons of Naomi Campbell, Carine Roitfeld, and Daphne Guinness is quite amusing.
Now, I realize there has been controversy on the physical look of the Disney characters throughout the campaign [tall, super skinny]. Well, guess what everyone…this is what high fashion models look like. As far as I’m concerned it’s not a big deal, calm down, and just enjoy it and leave the drama somewhere else.
The Electric Christmas collector’s items are all super cute and range from a $125 collector’s book to lollipops and ornaments. Best part is, 25% of the proceeds are going to the Red Cross for Hurricane Sandy Relief. So, clearly I’m requesting one or two items from Santa! Check out the collection here.
When I’m back in NJ for winter break I can’t wait to go into Manhattan and actually see the windows, I’ll be sure to take tons of pics!
