Rolls-Royce announces Spring/Summer 2017 collection


Premium carmaker Rolls-Royce has revealed its Spring/Summer 2017 Couture collection, with signature colours contrasting the classic white bodywork.

The Dawn – Inspired by Fashion collection is fitted to the Rolls-Royce Dawn convertible and the main feature of these updated models is the block colour roof, with the three signature colours feeding into the trim that adorns the interior.

Led by design director Giles Taylor, a team of hand-picked Haute Couture designers chose to select "the neutral canvas of white upon which to base three vibrant colours." Mugello red, cobalto blue and mandarin were selected to contrast the bodywork.

As well as the exterior accenting, the arctic white interior has coloured stitching and piping in the seats, as well as various other splashes of colour.

Taylor said: "Our clients are the very arbiters of fashion, tastemakers who sit in the front row of the Couture shows, themselves influencing evolving trends.

"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."

The Rolls-Royce Dawn has a starting price of £264,000 and is fitted with a 6.6-litre V12 that produces 563bhp. This propels the luxury convertible from 0-62mph in 4.9 seconds.
