Unveiled: The Rolls-Royce Dawn – Inspired by Fashion
In another move to showcase its diversity, luxury British automaker Rolls-Royce has launched another Inspired by Fashion collection. While the successful first iteration featured the Wraith, this year's edition sees the Dawn receiving the couture treatment.
Drawing on the exceptional skills of artisans and specialists, Design Director Giles Taylor selected three stunning base colours – Mugello Red, Cobalto Blue or Mandarin – to incorporate into the vehicle. While the cabin features more subtle accents such as stitchings, pipings and matching embroidered headrests, the collapsible roof is drenched in those vivid hues, offering added life and panache to classic white Dawns.
"Our clients are the very arbiters of fashion, tastemakers who sit in the front row of the couture shows, themselves influencing evolving trends," said Taylor. "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."
