DTK’s To Kill For:
THE VESPA 946 CHRISTIAN DIOR
Ladies, if you’ve ever dreamt of owning a Vespa, you’re going to love the Vespa 946 Christian Dior, an exclusive scooter created in conjunction with a collection of matching accessories.
—By Luisa Tarantino
Giving us a collaboration we never knew we needed until this moment, the Vespa x Christian Dior scooter ” reinvents this spirit of freedom, movement and expression that drives” both brands.
A contemporary version of the Vespa’s iconic 946 model, designed by Maria Grazia Chiuru, the Creative Director of Dior’s womenswear, the design of the 946 x Christian Dior plays with subtle graphic lines and motifs that pay tribute to the long heritage of both houses. The Dior oblique motif adorns a number of the scooter’s elegantly and meticulously designed (and yes, always Made-in-Italy) elements, such as the top case and luggage rack. In the accessories collection, a statement-piece helmet is adorned with the same iconic Dior motif.
The body of the scooter is sleek, classic, and summery, painted in a cream white with a blue leather seat, with gold pinstripe detailing as ornamentation that extends to the scooter’s wheels as well.
The scooter and the accessories are set to launch in Spring 2021. The accessories collection, including a helmet and top case, will be available exclusively in Dior boutiques, while the Vespa will be available in a selection of Piaggio Group’s Motoplex stores.
