Balenciaga and the Movie with the Simpsons for Spring 2022

Balenciaga stages an unprecedented show: a celebrity red carpet and the screening of an ad hoc short created with the Simpsons. Classic oversized silhouettes and cyber gothic aesthetic, with the humor of the most iconic cartoon ever. The images of the editors, the characters of the fashion world and the characters of the cartoon coexist on-screen for a fun parody of the cult moments of a show and what it means to be part of the Balenciaga gang.

Balenciaga always amazes. The presentation of the Maison’s Balenciaga Spring Summer 2022 collection was one of the key events of Paris Fashion Week at the Theatre du Chatelet. First of all, a Hollywood red carpet, to remember the glamor now forgotten after the pandemic, and then the collaboration with the creators of the Simpsons to preview a unique episode of a clip-movie unveiled during the show. In the short Homer Simpson convinces Balenciaga creative director Demna Gvasalia to lend a dress to Marge – and culminates with the entire city of Springfield appearing in a Balenciaga fashion show.

Famous characters including Mo the bartender, Chief Wiggum and Smithers are shown in animated versions of Balenciaga’s past looks, in front of a cartoon audience that includes Vogue editors from Anna Wintour to Hamish Bowles. Prior to the preview presentation of the clip, guests who arrived at the show were invited to pose on a red carpet in front of a plethora of photographers, unaware of being live-streamed to those already inside the show, theater and on social media.

Mixed on the red carpet and among the guests who sat at the theater, there was a host of guests wearing the looks of the new collection, including the staff of the Balenciaga atelier, friends of the house and a star-studded array of celebrities – Cardi B, Offset, Lewis Hamilton, Juergen Teller, Isabelle Huppert, Naomi Campbell and Elliot Page were among those who wore the new Spring Summer 2022 creations.
