After much thinking and pondering, Rolls-Royce decided at this year’s Geneva Motor Show they should celebrate “the historical role played by silk as a symbol of ultimate elegance.” So they created the Rolls-Royce Serenity based on the Phantom and put a lot os silk in it!

Rolls-Royce Serenity is a one-off created by the firm’s Bespoke department and it is all about the interior. The car serves as a showcase of what the Bespoke people are capable of and what you can achieve if your imagination is strong, and your pocket deep.

Two art school graduates, after studying the most luxurious silk-based stuff, embarked on designing a unique interior for the Rolls-Royce Serenity using a blank bolt of the finest hand-woven silk as the base for their work. The first step was applying a Chinese imperial embroidery using 140 smoke green threads per centimetre. It was then garnished with hand-painted crimson blossoms. The name Serenity is inspired by the state meditation the artist enters before painting. They call it ‘unconscious painting’.

Another highlight of Rolls-Royce Serenity cabin is the use of a healthy dose of Smoked Cherrywood, bamboo, and Arctic White leather. In addition, the blossom motif from the silk is recreated through the finest marquetry on the rear door cappings through the use of Mother of Pearl, which is laser-cut and hand-applied. The boot of the car is lined with Arctic White leather with an Arctic White carpet, and fitted with two parasols featuring the Serenity motif.
