Marge Simpson

AleXsandro Palombo X Marge Simpson

Artist and designer AleXsandro Palombo pays tribute to Marge Simpson in a series of illustrations which showcase the most iconic dresses of the last 100 years, such as the « Union Jack » mini-dress that Spice Girls’ Geri Halliwell wore at the 1997 BRIT Awards.

In January 2012, AleXsandro Palombo had reimagined as Marge Simpson fashion icons, including Coco Chanel and Donatella Versace, in a series of fashion cartoons.
