About the designer Sean Wotherspoon
Vespa entered into the collaboration with Sean Wotherspoon to build on his creativity. From the union of Vespa and Sean was born a fabulous energy, which is not surprising: The designer and the manufacturer share a love of experimenting with colors that anticipate future trends. The result was probably the most unusual, if not the craziest Vespa of all time. Sean himself referred to this on his Instagram page, where he announced the partnership.
What does the Vespa x Wotherspoon look like?
The Vespa Primavera Sean Wotherspoon is painted in a way that reflects Sean’s love of colors and the overall style of the 1970s to late 1980s. Typical at the time were garish solid colors, such as the unabashedly garish combination of red, yellow, green and aqua – a typical 1970s stylistic device that was picked up, for example, by the makers of “Everything dances to my tune” starring Louis de Funès. The colors seem joyfully irreverent, fun-loving, highly striking and anything but discreet. They carelessly disregard the desire for nice balance, but it is precisely this trait that makes them so charming.

It stands for carefree moments of life that nevertheless carry a subtle touch of glamour. The lively scooter is altogether a cheerful kaleidoscope of red, yellow, dark green and aquamarine colors with white squiggles that have shapes of iconic ties. The bodywork and rims bear this sign alongside the Vespa logo. Completing the look are the headlight frame, luggage rack and passenger handle in a chrome finish. A shot of black on the handles and the cover of the muffler makes the design even more interesting.
