Who knew he had it in him? After more than two decades of wearing the same red t-shirt and blue shorts, Bart Simpson is going high fashion.
Designer Jeremy Scott, whose previous pop culture collections include those inspired by The Flinstones and Mickey Mouse, unveiled an entire line devoted to The Simpsons character during New York Fashion week earlier today.
The looks – there were five of them – consisted primarily of sweaters emblazoned with Simpson’s iconic image (pictured), some of which were paired with sequined pants or kilts.
Scott collaborated with 20th Century Fox to create the pieces, which will be available in limited editions at boutiques that carry his work.
No word yet on whether Simpson is planning to wear one of the ensembles on the show, but with the 500th episode coming up, we really can’t think of a better excuse to take a fashion risk.
