Rolls-Royce has just released yet another bespoke Phantom, this one called the Rose Phantom. It was commissioned for a Stockholm-based entrepreneur who is deeply passionate about flowers, so much in fact he named two of his four children after flowers.
The car before your eyes was created by the Rolls-Royce Bespoke Collective, and it boasts a never-before-seen “rose garden” made from a million embroidered stitches. The floral experience begins upon opening the coach doors, which reveal an unprecedented satin stitch creation that grace the door cards, dashboard, and roof lining.
As per other Phantoms, the automaker’s starlight headliner with hundreds of fibre optics continue to illuminate the cabin. For added serenity, the cabin is upholstered in sumptuous Charles Blue leather with Peacock Blue piping.
But what’s a garden without butterflies, right? At the client’s request, Rolls-Royce incorporated a number of butterflies created using the same Peacock and Adonis Blue stitches. The client’s wife designed the umbrellas whilst his daughter, Magnolia, defined the exterior hue of this Phantom. “I wanted to have flowers and roses everywhere. It became an amazing piece of art,” said the unnamed entrepreneur.
On the outside, the car is finished in a Peacock Blue paint, and accented with Charles Blue twinned-coachline. The wheels also share the same theme, although much subtler – the centre caps get twinned pinstripe, also in Charles Blue.
Rolls-Royce CEO, Torsten Müller Ötvös said: “The Rose Phantom is a stunning iteration of a contemporary Rolls-Royce. Our extraordinary craftspeople at the Home of Rolls-Royce have achieved, with this car, something which can only be described as sublime.
“The work of our Bespoke Collective is the best in the world. When I look at creations like this car, it is with a sense of pride that I know that these skills could not be replicated anywhere else in the world. This is undoubtedly one of the greatest Rolls-Royce Phantoms of its generation,” he added.
Company bespoke designer Ieuan Hatherall also said: “There is a transcendent beauty when a rose garden is in full bloom. The patron wanted to create that same feeling of awe; an abundance of flowers to lift the spirit and celebrate nature’s decadent beauty, in the Rose Phantom’s serene interior.”
