Rolls-Royce Motor Cars to showcase a highly bespoke hand-painted Rolls-Royce Phantom hood at this year’s London Craft Week. It was painted by Allie Knight, a highly skilled artisan from the marque’s Exterior Surface Finish Centre, and will be demonstrated at the marque’s new global flagship premises in Berkeley Street, Mayfair.
Since 2016, the marque’s Global Centre of Luxury Manufacturing Excellence, located on the Duke of Richmond’s Goodwood Estate on the edge of the South Downs National Park, has been home to the Rolls-Royce Apiary – six colonies totaling about 300, 000 English honeybees that produce ‘the Rolls-Royce of Honey’. These honeybees and the Phantom Rose – an English Tea Rose bred especially for Rolls-Royce and found only at the marque’s headquarters – have been the inspiration for the highly Bespoke hood.
For the duration of London Craft Week, Rolls-Royce Motor Cars, London, will showcase the size of character provided by pinnacle contemporary craft. A global public debut of this highly Bespoke and unique Rolls-Royce hood will be displayed in the window of Rolls-Royce’s flagship showroom, in the heart of Mayfair. A unique Champagne cocktail that includes Rolls-Royce’s rare honey, has been designed in collaboration with Perrier Jouët for this occasion.
Viewers can visit Rolls-Royce Motor Cars London, Berkeley Street, Mayfair to admire this unique hood, on display from Monday 4th October – Sunday 10th October. In addition, on 5th October, Allie Knight will be offering a rare insight into the world of the leading luxury marque via a LinkedIn stream at 13:00 GMT. During the session, Allie will reveal the story behind her work on the Bespoke hood.
