    All I can see is a man who tucks his wee-wee between his legs and dances in front of a mirror while whispering to himself "Would you eff me? I'd eff me."

    The limited-edition Vespa 946 Christian Dior and matching accessories, including a helmet, will go on sale in spring 2021.

    LA DOLCE VITA: Dior has linked with Italian brand Vespa to create an exclusive scooter and a range of matching accessories.

    In the works since before the coronavirus pandemic put the world in lockdown, the collaboration is rooted in the “spirit of freedom, movement and expression,” the companies said in a joint statement.

    Maria Grazia Chiuri, creative director of Dior women’s collections, designed the limited-edition version of the Vespa 946, a modernized version of the scooter that was originally presented by manufacturer Piaggio in 2012.

    “For me, Vespa is linked to my city, Rome,” she said, evoking the image of Audrey Hepburn riding on the back of Gregory Peck’s scooter in the 1953 movie “Roman Holiday.”

    “I have so many happy memories starring a Vespa. It’s how my husband and I used to get around Rome and go to the seaside in Fregene. It’s a symbol of Italian-ness that is intricately linked to my personal history, and it’s now part of my professional life at Dior,” Chiuri said.

    Pietro Beccari, chairman and chief executive officer of Christian Dior Couture, noted the house’s founder Christian Dior was fascinated with the Italian Riviera in the Fifties.

    “The Dolce Vita lifestyle never ceased to infuse its elegant spirit into his haute couture models, a sun-drenched magic that today, more than ever, is perpetuated in the collections of Maria Grazia Chiuri,” he said.

    Dior was due to underscore its ties with Italian culture with the planned presentation of its cruise collection in Lecce on May 9, but it was forced to cancel the show due to the COVID-19 pandemic.

    The Vespa 946 Christian Dior, featuring a saddle patterned with the Dior Oblique motif, will go on sale in spring 2021 in Dior boutiques around the world and subsequently in a selection of Piaggio’s Motoplex stores. Accessories, including a matching helmet and top case designed to be fixed on the luggage rack, will be available exclusively in Dior boutiques.

    Michele Colaninno, ceo of holding company Immsi Group and Piaggio’s chief of product and strategy, noted the scooter was a symbol of escape to new horizons.

    “In these unprecedented times, it is great to be able to dream of a better future. The house of Dior opened its doors in 1946 in Paris, the same year that Vespa made its debut in Italy. This new Vespa 946 celebrates that anniversary and honors our heritage,” he said.

    “Today, like yesterday, we have gone through a dark period and now we are joining forces to share some joie de vivre through a combination of style and craftsmanship,” Colaninno concluded.

    Jason Wu’s Fresh, New Collaborator: 1- 800- Flowers

    • 9 Jun 2020
    • BY LISA LOCKWOOD

    Jason Wu is branching out.

    Wu has forged a deal with 1-800-Flowers.com to create an exclusive assortment of bouquets. Dubbed the “Jason Wu for Wild Beauty” collection, it is available nationwide and features arrangements that embody the designer’s aesthetic of femininity and sophistication.

    This marks Wu’s first collaboration with a floral and gifting brand.

    The venture will have behind-the-scenes content, specially designed thank you notes and the ability to preview select bouquets in 3-D.

    “Flowers have always had a significant presence in my life,” Wu said. “My father was an avid gardener, so I’ve had a deep love of flowers ever since I was young. Throughout my career, floral elements have been a signature part of my ready-towear designs and are prominently featured in my fashion show sets.”

    “Jason Wu is one of the world’s most renowned fashion designers and we are so happy to collaborate with him on this truly original collection, which reflects his unique point of view in floral design and bouquet presentation,” said Valerie Ghitelman, vice president, product development and design, at 1-800-Flowers. com. “We are excited to not only share these beautifully crafted arrangements with our customers, but to engage them with distinctive content that provides insights into Jason’s design influences and more.”

    The arrangements include freshly cut flowers, such as roses, sunflowers,

    Gerbera daisies, thistle, aster, mini calla lilies, among others — that are grown at select eco-friendly, sustainable farms.

    Each boutique, which includes a mix of textures and florals unique to the season, arrives wrapped in white craft paper and comes in a signature gift box. A galvanized flower pail is also offered to showcase their arrangement.

    The Jason Wu for Wild Beauty collection features Citrus Crush, Watercolor Chiffon, Wild Cascade, Poplin Creme and Silken Roses. This is an ongoing collaboration and collections will be added. Prices range from $44.99 to $64.99.

    Bouquets from the collection arrive with a custom hangtag, which prompts recipients though a QR code to engage in a mobile web experience. The content includes behind-the-scenes footage from Wu’s rtw fall 2020 fashion show and a Jason Wu for Wild Beauty collection photo shoot, both of which took place earlier this year. The 3-D and augmented reality feature enables web shoppers to preview three of the boutiques in 3-D and then in their own spaces with augmented reality using their mobile devices.

    Bouquets range from $44.99 to $64.99.

    And to think that in 90s they did everything to get rid of the licensed products. I still remember reading about the Dior rice cookers.
