I actually never have been a to-die-for Disney fan (like most of the people in the whole planet is). I kinda was when I was a kid, though. My first Disney movie was The Fox and the Hound back when I was like 7 years old, an oldie but goodie, I remember how I used to cry a little by the end of the movie. Afterwards, when I was 9 I used to watch Toy Story for hours and hours on my parent's VHS, so whenever my dad was going to rent some movies, he already knew what I was going to ask him to rent for me. It was a pretty funny rutine. Being a pre-teen, I fell in love with Mulan, the one true princess Disney has. While I'm a teenager, I sort of lost that feeling of likeness for Disney's childish films, maybe because I changed my Toy Story VHS casettes for my anime DVD's and after that for my videogames CDs. 

Now that I'm becoming a young adult, I enjoy finding the adult jokes on their films. And I'm beggining to think that's maybe a way of the studying the evolvement of Y generationers minds/life nowadays, how us, the Y generationers have changed our pretty Disney's childhood movie memories for current Disney's adult humor on those same movies. Nevertheless, I haven't  lost any respect for the company, bringing up that they did really amazing productions with a social, ecological, political and cultural content throughout their history. That's why that respect for Disney has now freshen up for me. This team-up with Barney's has given them a brand new matter to explore in their future: fashion. Who would have thought Tiana, from The Frog Princess could rock Proenza Schouler so nicely? and that Mickey Mouse would ever wear a Balenciaga sweater, and would you ever have thought Linda Evangelista would share the front row with Captain Hook, or Naomi Campbell with Chesire the Cat, how about Emmanuelle Alt with Jafar?

I surprisingly loved how the producers weren't afraid to include fashion people from all over the industry, from photographers like Mario Sorrenti or Steven Meisel; editors like Carine Roitfeld, Suzy Menkes or Franca Sozzani; designers like Alber Elbaz and, my favorite, Nicholas Ghesquiere; to hairdressers, make up artists, and on and on. Making a personal analogy, it was like watching Midnight in Paris for the first time, smiling because you know that certain character and you recognize it in the exact moment they appeared, or even getting surprised by watching people you would never even imagine they'd be there, like, Nicholas Ghesquiere. Hope you like it as much as I did!

Darn you, lucky Mickey Mouse.
