To cement the image of a stylish two-wheeler, Vespa announced at the end of the week a partnership with French couture house Christian Dior, a partnership meant to reinvent “spirit of freedom, movement and expression.”
The collaboration will materialize in the first few months of 2021 in the form of a Vespa 946 drawn by Maria Grazia Chiuri, Creative Director of Dior women’s collections.
As one of the younger models in the lineup – the 946 came to be in 2013 – and one that is among the most sought after in our time, this scooter will try to appeal to the general public through the special “monohull architecture and subtle graphic lines paying tribute to the heritage of the two houses.”
To make it an ideal gift for women on Valentine’s Day next year, the Vespa is accompanied by a top case patterned with the Dior Oblique motif, and also a helmet sporting the same graphics. There’s even a bag in the images released by Vespa matching all the other elements.
That pretty much means there will be only visual upgrades made to the scooter, and the limited edition does not come with changes to powertrain, as far as we’re told.
The Italian company did not say anything about pricing of the 946 Designed by Christian Dior.
