The Rolls-Royce Phantom Serenity has been revealed today at the Geneva Motor Show to showcase the amazing work of the bespoke design department of the British manufacturer. This one-off model has an oriental inspired theme and has taken influence from the “amazing interiors of the elite Rolls-Royce’s of the early 1900’s” according to Giles Taylor, the director of design. “the historical role played by silk as a symbol of regal and imperial power.”
In typical fashion you would expect from Rolls-Royce, the interior features hand-woven silk sourced from China with hand painted crimson blossoms. Also inside, you will find arctic white leather, mother of pearl, bamboo cross-banding as well as rare smoked cherrywood. One of the most dramatic and luxurious items to ever come out of the Rolls-Royce receives mother of pearl paint work – which is the most expensive one-off paint ever developed by the British company – applied in a three stage pearl effect, after which it is hand polished for 12 hours.
The style of painting used for the silk is known as ‘unconscious painting’ – with constant use of repetition of very detailed natural designs give the artist an innate understanding of these natural forms until they have complete understanding of the design without thought.
This one-off model really is the highest in bespoke luxury. The painstaking amount of time it takes to make, paint, design, weave and polish even the finest of details really places the Phantom Serenity as the King of luxury in the most beautiful, exquisite and intricate way.
