A splash of color on the outside combined with silk accents on the inside.
The latest bespoke Rolls-Royce (pleonasm?) Dawn takes its inspiration from the world of Haute Couture and can be had only with an Andalucian White body paint. What truly sets this special edition apart is the Mugello Red, Cobalto Blue or Mandarin finish for the fabric roof complemented by a hand-painted coachline color-coordinated with the soft top’s hue.
As with all Rolls-Royces, it’s the interior that really grabs most of the attention. The luxurious cabin comes with an Arctic White and Black theme with seamless stitching for the leather upholstery and silk applied onto the front and rear door pockets. All of the silk surfaces are adorned with an abstract representation of the Spirit of Ecstasy, with each emblem set at exactly 55 degrees in order to complement the lines of the door and provide a cohesive look.
To spice things up, there are accents in Mugello Red, Cobalto Blue or Mandarin, depending on the color of the roof. The Dawn Inspired by Fashion has also received a fancy Piano White dashboard with aluminum particles to generate a silk-like appearance and mimic the finish of the door pockets. As you would imagine, creating that special look for the dashboard takes a lot of work, with Rolls-Royce saying the lacquering process alone requires nine days.
As a final touch, the bespoke clock has been designed to look like a piece of jewelry and features a silver on silver effect as a nod to the metallic fabrics used this year by fashion designers for their presentations on the catwalk.
Rolls-Royce says the Dawn Inspired by Fashion will go on sale starting next month when people with the means to buy it will be able to “commission their personal style statement.” There’s no word about pricing just yet, but surely it’s more expensive than a standard $339,850 Dawn.
