Last week Rolls-Royce took the veils off a new car in their bespoke portfolio, the Rolls-Royce Dawn Inspired by Fashion. With a name as straightforward as that, it’s pretty easy to understand what the inspiration was for this new drop top. The best materials in the world, that are also used in fashion, have been infused in the new Dawn and you can see an interesting detail wherever you look.
Today we stumbled upon two new videos from the British manufacturer that showcase two of the three colors available for the textile roof of the convertible land yachts. Posted below via Youtube, the two videos here show us the Mugello Red and Cobalto Blue hues, leaving Mandarin aside for some unknown reason. The colors are apparently the ones that will dictate the fashion trends of the Spring/Summer collections of 2017, according to the double-R company.
“Our clients are the very arbiters of fashion, tastemakers who sit in the front row of the Couture shows, themselves influencing evolving trends,” comments Giles Taylor, Director of Design for Rolls-Royce Motor Cars. “To them, the commissioning of fine luxury objects represents a deeply-involving curatorial process – with different forms of luxury design, craft and execution serving as inspiration for the other. ‘Dawn – Inspired by Fashion’ beautifully expresses the notion that inspiration for truly personal objects is drawn from the passions, tastes and lifestyle of its patron.”
The Dawn’s exterior color scheme of Andalucian White is beautifully accented by a hand-painted coach line which drapes over the curve of the car’s hip as the line flows backwards along the car, reflecting the identical splash of color provided when the soft-top roof is in place. If you’re interested, you should know that you are invited to commission your own car starting this November as the cars will take some time to be done according to your personal preference and you may want to have your own bespoke Dawn by Spring next year.
