The Ape is an adorable 3-wheeled vehicle produced by Italian carmaker Piaggio. It was originally designed by the inventor of the Vespa and was intended to aid the struggling class of post-war Italy. Well now instead of transporting goods it’s selling flowers at the Ginza flagship store of Italian luxury brand Fendi.
The pop-up flower shop is a collaboration between Fendi and floral artist Makoto Azuma. The fashion house’s 2016 Spring/Summer collection is all about flower power, so it only made sense for them to bring in Azuma, who created this fantastic installation that also acts as an actual flower shop. Through April 17, 2016 customers will be able to buy 2-types of limited edition bags and original flower bouquets by the artist (16,200 yen) or a lower-priced bouquet and fur charm (7,560 yen).
If you’ve missed the cherry blossoms this year you still have time to get your share of flowers, albeit at a higher price.
