Balenciaga’s “Red Carpet Collection” for spring 2022 was set up like a film premiere — with fashion professionals and celebrities including Cardi B, Lewis Hamilton and Elliot Page filing into the Théâtre du Châtelet. But when the lights went down, the audience was treated to a bespoke 10-minute episode of “The Simpsons” in which Homer treats Marge to a Balenciaga birthday gift, unleashing hilarious scenes that climax with the town of Springfield flown to Paris by Demna Gvasalia to model in his show. The fashion pack roared with approval as Homer Simpson attempts to pronounce the fashion brand — “Balun, Balloon, Baleen” — and ultimately ends up wearing a supersized red parka and serenading his wife in French. The episode featured cameos by Vogue’s Anna Wintour along with grouchy bartender Moe in a big-shouldered camel coat.
