Vespa and Sean Wotherspoon host a unique launch event in Milan

vespa-scooter-sean-wotherspoon-collaboration-1

Vespa is an Italian brand of scooter manufactured by Piaggio. The name means ‘wasp’ in Italian. The Vespa has evolved from a single model motor scooter manufactured in 1946 by Piaggio & Co. S.p.A. of Pontedera, Italy to a full line of scooters and one of seven companies today owned by Piaggio. Vespa scooters have been known for their painted, pressed steel unibody which combines, in a unified structural unit, a complete cowling for the engine (enclosing the engine mechanism and concealing dirt or grease), a flat floorboard (providing foot protection), and a prominent front fairing (providing wind protection).

The biggest sales promo ever was Hollywood. In 1952, Audrey Hepburn side-saddled Gregory Peck’s Vespa in the feature film ‘Roman Holiday’ for a ride through Rome, resulting in over 100,000 sales.

Vespa scooters have become an iconic symbol of classic and modern Italy. The heritage scooter brand has been refining its creations for over 70 years and in its lifetime it has produced more than 18 million scooters. To amplify its most recent collaboration with streetwear aficionado and Round Two founder Sean Wotherspoon, Vespa will host a special launch event coinciding with the EICMA international fair.

Details of the collaboration are restricted, but it’s rumoured to involve a capsule collection and a limited edition Vespa Primavera scooter. True to Wotherspoons’ style, fans should expect a vividly colorful design, offering a bold reinterpretation of the classic scooter model.

The capsule collection will be officially unveiled by Vespa and Sean Wotherspoon himself at the launch event taking place at the Motoplex Milano City Lounge on November 5. Guests will be able to pick up signed T-shirts from the collection, retailing at €40, and meet the designer himself.

Yakymour, home of Begum Om Habibeh Aga Khan, thè place in the mid 50's 'till the late 80's, where fashion, art, beauty and love meet each other, from all over the world.... Playing as a child in the garden of Yakymour was a happy, innocent time, thanx to ‘Grandma’ Yaky and to Sadruddin, where I could be fully myself and forget ‘the bad things’, and get some strenght. The Last 30 years working as cosmetologist and as a make-up artist for television, theatre, film, fotoshoots, fashion shows, celebrities and individuals gave me a trunk full of experience. My work brought me all over the world and had photoshoot's on location in the Netherlands, Germany, Belgium, France, Jordan, Syria, Lebanon, India a.o. At this Blog you will find many reviews of cosmetics, fashion, art, and everything beautiful, as an ode to Begum Om Habibeh 'Yaky' Aga Khan, and named after the place where 'everything' was beautiful: Yakymour. You will find here all the in and outs about skincare, perfums, and make-up, the do's and don'ts, the why's and how's.... The stories behind, and some great interviews... So when you have any question.... please ask. Come on in.... feel yourself at home at Yakymour! Jean Amr P.S. My apologies for future grammatical errors. English is not my mother language :)
