Vespa x Dior scooter.

Zooming around the city will never be the same. It will forever be known as a stylish, sassy activity taken on by the most stylish people to enjoy not just the outdoors but the attention of many. So long as you are doing this seated on limited-edition Vespa 946 Christian Dior! You did read that right, and this could be the most thrilling news to come our way all week. The enthusiasm is doubled on learning that there won’t just be an up-market, ultra-chic (read: expensive) scooter to have fun on it also comes with an amazing range of matching accessories. The collaboration between Vespa and Christian Dior has resulted in a modernized version of the scooter that was originally presented by manufacturer Piaggio in 2012. The awesome wheels are designed by none other than Maria Grazia Chiuri, creative director of Dior women’s collections who draws inspiration from the romantic city of Rome where she comes from. The image of Audrey Hepburn riding on the back of Gregory Peck’s scooter in the 1953 movie Roman Holiday contributed in the making of the very stylish Vespa 946 Christian Dior; as did her own wonderful experiences involving the Vespa, her husband and the picturesque seaside in Fregene. She intelligently calls the Vespa a symbol of Italian-ness that has now transported from her personal history to her professional life too. The Vespa 946 Christian Dior stars a saddle patterned with the Dior Oblique motif and accessories, including a matching helmet and top case designed to be fixed on the luggage rack.
