Johnny Cupcakes Cooks Up a Clothing Collection Inspired by The Simpsons
Johnny Cupcakes is taking a trip to Springfield! The faux bakery, which specializes in graphic T-shirts, has announced that it will launch a special collection of shirts and accessories that feature Homer Simpson, Bart Simpson, and Krusty the Clown from the Fox TV show The Simpsons. While they may not seem like the most fashion-forward bunch (after all, they have worn the same clothes for some 25 years), the Simpson family and their whimsical pals are the inspiration for three special-edition “cupcake mix” box sets which will include three collectible products from the line.
"What makes this collaboration unique is the fun world of imagery and iconography that we’ve created with our brand that we were able to seamlessly merge into The Simpsons universe,” says CEO and head baker Johnny "Cupcakes" Earle. Not only does the collection promise to offer a unique spin on images from the longest-running scripted show in television history, but the limited release of the exclusive designs will make for some truly sweet collectible treats. Can’t wait to get your hands on the freshly baked merchandise? The collection will be available in all Johnny Cupcakes retail shops and online starting May 31.
