Botanical Sculptor Turns An Italian Car Into A Moving Flower Shop

As a collaborative effort with Fendi, botanical artist extraordinaire Azuma Makoto has created the most adorable flower shop on wheels to promote Fendi’s 2016 spring and summer collection, the theme of which is Flower Power.

Fendi Flower Shop

The pop-up flower shop was built on an “Ape,” a vehicle designed by the inventor of Vespa and produced by Italian carmaker Piaggio. The car was originally made to help the citizens of post-war Italy, but up until April 17, 2016, the car turned flower cart could be found at the Fendi Ginza flagship store. The car was stocked with two limited-edition Fendi bags, as well as an array of Makoto’s flower bouquets ranging in price from $70 to $150.
