Title of film: The Simpsons; Balenciaga
Fashion Week, as we all know, is a serious business. From stony faces on the front row to smouldering models, you're more likely to witness Anna Wintour enjoying a KFC bucket than see a smile cracked - which is why this tongue-in-cheek new film from Balenciaga featuring the entire cast of The Simpsons, feels genuinely disruptive. Commissioned by the house's creative director Demna Gvasalia - a long-term fan of the animated series - the 10-minute episode sees the citizens of Springfield model new season looks on the Paris catwalk, after a typically Homer-esque debacle involving Marge's birthday, a dress of dreams, and a trip to the City of Lights. Packed with in-jokes and sly digs at the fashion industry, it's proof that humour is indeed the new haute couture.
