Vespa and Dior Collaboration Give Birth to Vespa 946 Christian Dior |

DAPURPACU – Dior and Vespa have collaborated in creating an exclusive scooter. Both brands were founded in the same year (1946), the Italian brand and the Paris fashion house share the desire to inspire the world to be more innovative, more colorful, with a creative outlook. To bring about a day that is more meaningful than ever, the collaboration between Dior and Vespa rediscovers the spirit of freedom, movement and expression that is the foundation of the two brands.

From this passionate team effort, the Vespa 946 Christian Dior was born: the most exclusive Vespa model, presented in 2012 and devoted to aesthetic and technological perfection, reinterpreted by Maria Grazia Chiuri, Creative Director of the Dior women’s collection.

This led to the birth of a true collector’s item, made in Italy with the utmost care, dedication and precision of a fashion salon, in a special edition limited to only 946 units. On the Vespa 946 Christian Dior, the body – made entirely of steel, refined with aluminum parts including the mudguard and side covers – is “dressed” in an elegant creamy white color with special Christian Dior graphics and even the smallest details reflect a commitment to excellence and savoir-fare shared by the two brands. Evidence of this is the sheer number of gold-tone satin parts: rear luggage rack, circular under-seat aesthetic element, bag hooks, aluminum mirror brackets, end hand grips, profiles that run along the perimeter of the shield, “neck-tie” decor, and edges and hubs of aluminum alloy wheels.

Vespa 946 Christian Dior distills and concentrates on itself the skills of Italian technology as well as the best French fashion style: a bold and very elegant solution of the hanging chair, which leaves the back of the Vespa 946 plastered open, enhanced by saddle buffers covered with Dior patterns The iconic oblique, designed by Marc Bohan in 1967. The saddle seating area, on the other hand, is lined with dark blue leather, as well as hand grips, hand stitching, and covers.

Each highly prized Vespa 946 Christian Dior comes with a wecome kit which includes a volume describing the origins of the partnership and the vehicle’s features, a use and maintenance manual, and a warranty booklet.

The kit also comes with a chrome-plated aluminum cover to increase the area where the seat attaches to the body – something that has always been one of the hallmarks of the Vespa 946 – and which will be attached to the Vespa when the customer takes delivery of the motorcycle.
