Just in time for summer, Christian Dior and Italian motorcycle manufacturer Vespa have come together to unveil a highly limited-edition of Vespa 946, a collaboration that marries their individual histories (both brands were founded in 1946) and captures “the freedom of movement and expression that both brands hold so dear.”
Designed by Maria Grazia Chiuri, Dior’s first female artistic director, this couture scooter comes with a range of luxurious accessories – a helmet, saddle cover, and a luggage box, all elegantly dressed in Dior’s signature Oblique pattern, initially created by Marc Bohan in 1967. On the right side of the vehicle is the signature ‘Christian Dior’ logo in the form of a decal, while the left side is fully customizable. Beneath the stylish exterior is the timeless 946 – a recognizably sleek two-wheeler powered by a 125cc, three-valve, air-cooled engine.
This special Vespa edition will launch in Dior’s boutiques around the world, and subsequently in a selection of Piaggio Group’s Motoplex stores, in spring 2021.
