The Westbury Mayfair Hotel, a Luxury Collection Hotel, London celebrates London Craft Week from May 8th – 12th 2019, with the unveiling of two iconic Vespa designs.
The new futuristic Vespa Elettrica will appear in sharp signature silver with ice-blue highlights, hailing from its London dealership, BMG Scooters, to stand alongside their Vespa GTS300, dressed to impress in a bespoke leather outfit, handmade stitch by stitch exclusively by Bottega Conticelli for this Vespa.
The partnership creates a dynamic juxtaposition between futuristic technology and bespoke craftsmanship, resounding with the ethos of exclusivity of the hotel, its affiliation with bespoke tailoring and its awareness about sustainability in an urban environment.
The two icons of design will be at The Westbury Mayfair in the main lobby for the duration of London Craft Week, and at the private inauguration on May 9th in the St. George’s Penthouse Suite on the 7th floor – one of the 63 suites in the hotel.
On May 8th, Francesco Conticelli and his father Stefano, founder of the leather crafts studio in Umbria, will be in situ, creating the Leather Vespa working the hide to fit the silhouette of the GTS300, one piece at a time.
