For Spring/Summer 2017, Rolls-Royce, has tapped into haute couture for its new Dawn car. Dawn Inspired By Fashion blends timeless style with the spontaneous energy of high-contrast colour, to make the boldest of statements.
Three unique versions of the Dawn are being offered, each with a unique color scheme that, according to the company’s design boss Giles Taylor, was carefully chosen by a team of designers from “the worlds of fashion, fine textiles, and luxury accessories.”
There is no look more striking than crisp Andalusian White shimmering paint and ultra-luxe fabrics, unapologetically punctuated with the most vivid of accent colours: Mugello Red, Mandarin Orange and Cobalto Blue. Dawn’s refined soft-top roof is intensified by three dramatic statement shades, each elegantly reflected in the hand-painted coachline that leads the eye along its fluid form. Inside, Dawn’s dynamic shape is mirrored in bold leather lines that run the length of the cabin, and match the accent colour of the roof.
The intense accent colour is worked into the finest details on the headrests, seats and steering wheel. Silk-lined door pockets are adorned with a modern interpretation of the Spirit of Ecstasy monogram, set precisely at fifty-five degrees to complement the lines of the door. And the unique Inspired By Fashion clock sits like a jewelled accessory, styled exclusively to emit an iridescent pearl effect.
