The Bieber-Vespa creation isn’t just another scooter. It’s a fusion of style, design, and fun, aptly called the Vespa Sprint 150 Justin Bieber x Vespa. Announced with an aura of anticipation, this all-white Vespa Sprint boasts a flame motif just above the rear wheel, adding a unique edge to the otherwise monochrome look, a design aesthetic Bieber himself holds dear.

Fans of Bieber’s art and style will undoubtedly be thrilled by this collaboration. The singer’s passion for Pop art and streetwear is well-known, a sentiment reflected in the Vespa design. In 2019, Bieber and his wife, Hailey, auctioned off 17 contemporary pieces for charity. His love for art also extends to his Instagram, where he often shares peeks of his Kaws plush toys and Takashi Murakami pieces. Bieber also founded the streetwear brand Drew House, further cementing his influence in fashion and design.
Vespa’s History of Artistic Collaborations
This isn’t Vespa’s first venture into the world of art and design collaborations. They’ve previously teamed up with sneaker designer Sean Wotherspoon to design a Primavera 50 Vespa. High-fashion brands like Giorgio Armani and Christian Dior have also lent their unique aesthetics to the Italian scooter brand.
