Behind the Glass: Barneys brings everyone's favorite Disney characters to life with Electric Holiday, a production that comprises a window presentation, an animated short and a collaborative merchandise collection. Taking over two stories of its Madison Avenue location, the display features the mini-movie Electric Holiday, a rags-to-runway fairy tale centered on Minnie Mouse's desire to walk in a Paris fashion show; she appears on the catwalk dressed in Lanvin, with Carine Roitfeld, Lady Gaga and Sarah Jessica Parker as animated onlookers. Very svelte versions of Daisy Duck dressed in Dolce & Gabbana and Goofy in Balmain are among the other characters that strut their stuff. The film is played on stacked LED tiles that radiate neon bright colors on the facade of the flagship.
