Picnic hamper by Rolls-Royce is for every arbiter of design and luxury
SEP 14, 2016 | By Nupur Ashok Sarvaiya
The pricey and posh Phantom Coupe series by the British marque Rolls-Royce Motor Cars has redefined luxury stands in the automobile industry. Although the pursuit of perfection has no end, the brand has unveiled a hyper-luxurious Phantom Zenith Collection to mark the end of the Phantom Coupé and Phantom Drophead Coupé production.
Recognising the unique nature of this Phantom celebration is a Bespoke Picnic Hamper that has been created as a rare collectible. The hamper will serve as a true collectors’ piece, marrying the label’s remarkable craftsmanship with its customary eye for detail. Every hamper will be sequentially numbered to perfectly match each owner’s Phantom Zenith Collection motor car.
Embodying the concept of picnic as an occasion to be savoured and appreciated, the hamper itself is crafted from American walnut wood and natural grain leather. Each is finished in a choice of three colour combinations matching the interior of the cars. These include a subtly contrasting Ardent Red leather and black leather piping inspired by a 1929 Phantom II; a contemporary combination of Navy Blue and Arctic White leather piping evoking the genteel ambiance of a the original 1925 Rolls-Royce Phantom II; or a timeless black Anthracite leather with Seashell piping, reminiscent of the 1911 Rolls-Royce Silver Ghost.
Housed within the hamper are piano black tables that fold out on milled aluminium hinges. Inside, a handpicked selection of artisan tableware provides everything needed for a truly memorable picnic. The leather and wood interior shelving of the hamper contains lead crystal wine glasses, handmade stainless steel cutlery, napkins embroidered with the Rolls-Royce monogram in Arctic White, and a handcrafted American Walnut chopping board. And as a final flourish, the hampers also contain unique crockery, with painted black and platinum detail around the edges.
