Imagine a Christmas morning where you wake up and stumble down the hall way. Still blurry eyed, you look at the table next to the tree and notice only crumbs left on the plate where your stylized Disney character cookies had once laid. Santa must have been here! You then make it to the tree where designer Ear Hats, Vinylmation and hooded towels sit waiting to be unwrapped!
Yesterday on Madison Avenue, the eye’s of the fashion world looked upon Barney’s department store. At 9pm the switch was flipped and Electric Holiday gleamed brightly in the large window display. A wonderfully animated 5 minute video then began to play. And just like that, the Disney/Barneys joint Christmas venture was underway.
We talk about this event on this website because of the pair of Vinylmation that are now available for purchase. They are both online only and are described as limited edition, yet no edition size is given. We have already seen what they look like, however the price tag has now been revealed. Each 9″ designer Vinylmation will set you back $250… making them the most expensive (retail price) single Vinylmation so far.
With the vinyl news out of the way, let’s talk about this video! Not at all what I expected, the entertainment value exceeded expectations! I don’t even have a clue who 90% of the people in the video are, but the style of animation coupled with the Disney cameos and topped off with a beautiful score by Michael Giacchino make this a mini masterpiece. The cameos from across Disney, fashion and pop culture are incredible. Disney and or fashion fans MUST go here to watch the video! I will not spoil it all for you, but here is a peak at some of the cameos and screen shots…
In New York last night, Sarah Jessica Parker was on hand to help kick off the festivities. She joined Minnie Mouse on stage to help unveil the new collection.
Of course, there are other items for sale besides the Vinylmation. Take a look. I can’t believe the price tag on the cookies! The good news is that from November 14th – January 3rd, 25% of proceeds from the Electric Holiday collection will be donated to American Red Cross disaster relief.
Check out the entire collection at the Barneys website.
