Almost every Rolls-Royce motor car created last year was tailored by its Bespoke Collective – a team of engineers, designers and craftspeople based at the Home of Rolls-Royce in Goodwood, England. Faced with the challenges of 2020, clients invested time and creativity in unique commissions, creating personal items of longevity.
The ‘Dusk in Tokyo Collection’ pays tribute to Japan’s capital city and includes Phantom, Wraith, Dawn and Cullinan. A complex, multi-faceted white paint, named ‘Dusk in Tokyo’, characterizes the coastal metropolis’ high-rise glass and concrete buildings bathed in the warm light of early dusk. Containing aluminium and mica flakes, the refractive paint creates subtle tones in low light.
The Black Leather interior, punctuated by Rose Gold Bespoke Audio grilles and on Phantom, the fascia’s Rose Gold clock case, represents the contrast of dark shadows of the city’s tall buildings with flourishes of the last reaches of the waning sun on glass. The Spirit of Ecstasy, presented in Rose Gold for the first time in Japan, evokes the setting of the sun.
The Phantom’s hermetically sealed Gallery makes it possible to incorporate natural materials. In 2020, the Phantom ‘Iridescent Opulence’ took this approach to the new heights. The car was created in partnership with Swiss materials specialist Nature Squared. A Gallery that houses over 3,000 sustainably sourced iridescent tail feathers, each shaped individually to accentuate their sheen and rich hue.
