ASOS are collaborating with iconic cartoon The Simpsons for a new clothing range inspired by Springfield’s finest characters.
As High Snobiety reports, ASOS DESIGNS are paying homage to the show with a new range of over 30 pieces.
It includes Kwik-E-Mart bucket hats and bum bags, a Marge Simpson polo shirt, a Patty and Selma denim jacket, and shorts inspired by Bart’s chalkboard writing from the show’s opening titles.
The collection launches on August 23, and also features patterned designs inspired by the clouds that part to reveal the show’s famous opening titles, by Bart’s ever-changing chalkboard messages, and more.
I can't believe ASOS are releasing a Simpsons collab and I can't pretend that I don't want to purchase such classics as: Kwik E Mart bucket hat, Patty and Selma denim jacket, or Thank You Come Again Tote. pic.twitter.com/JuHLRDoger

Earlier this year, the show became the longest running prime time scripted series in history, after the iconic TV show aired its 636th episode. It will be entering its 30th season this autumn.
The news comes shortly after executives from Fox responded to whether or not the show will end any time soon, amid mounting speculation and longstanding criticism that the show is well past its prime.
While it’s been on the Fox network since its beginnings, the network will soon be separating from 20th Century Fox, who are merging with Disney. This means that Fox will have to license new seasons of the show direct from Disney in the future.
This has caused some fans to question the future of The Simpsons but Chairmen and CEOs Dana Walden and Gary Newman have been quick to reassure audiences.
“The Simpsons is so much a part of the brand, there’s been such an incredible halo effect of that show and the other animated series that are on our Sunday night,” Walden said during the Television Critics Association press tour, via THR. “There are no plans for them to go anywhere other than Fox.”
