The residents of Springfield made a surprise appearance at Paris fashion week this month, walking the runway in an animated short as part of Balenciaga’s “Simpsons” collection. Patty and Homer wore the brand’s signature red puffer; Smithers donned a stunning bodycon red dress; and, for the final act, Marge posed for photos in a sparkling gold gown.

Creative director Demna Gvasalia raised the bar for the traditional runway show, using the 10-minute video to send a message about voyeurism, being in the public spotlight and the constant state of presenting ourselves through screens and filters. Now, the streetwear line associated with the animated short is finally available to purchase on the luxury house’s website, with prices starting at $260 USD.
The new collaboration includes fun graphic tees, baseball hats, hoodies and keychains, in three different colorways and all embellished with an image of the five Simpsons family members — albeit in much more stylish clothing than their usual uniforms on Fox.
Balenciaga’s signature bomber hoodie is the most expensive piece in the collection, retailing for $2,450, while smaller accessories such as the white baseball hat, keychain, phone holder and backpack range in price from $260 to $500.
