Fashion label plans second range of accessories inspired by the animated series.
Twentieth Century Fox Consumer Products has renewed its partnership with Skinnydip for a second accessories collaboration inspired by the networks’ long-running “The Simpsons” animated series.
“The Simpsons” x Skinnydip will debut in summer 2016.
The first collaborative range launched this year and included iPhone cases, clutch bags, backpacks, coin purses, make up bags, pouches and phone cables inspired by “The Simpsons” character Krusty the Clown.
“We’ve had a tremendous reception to the first ‘The Simpsons’ x Skinnydip collection and the products have been an instant hit with the brand’s female fans,” says Sandra Vauthier-Cellier, senior vice president, EMEA, Fox Consumer Products. “Our collaboration with Skinnydip demonstrates the potential of ‘The Simpsons’ to resonate with a fashion conscious female audience and we look forward to extending our partnership with a second range next summer.”
Skinnydip launched the range in its Carnaby Street U.K. store as well as its stand at Gatwick Airport, with additional retailers TopShop and Selfridges also stocking the collection.
“We’re delighted with the range, but not surprised with Krusty being such an iconic character,” says Lewis Blitz, co-founder and owner, Skinnydip London. “We can’t wait to continue developing products using all of the great characters of Springfield and putting a Skinnydip twist on it.”
