This car’s appearance is as enigmatic as Michelle Lusby, Rolls – Royce Colour and Material Designer, sought it to be.
After all, it wouldn’t be the best car in the world without an air of mystery.
Although this was not the official fashion inspired Wraith: Piano White monochrome concept with complimenting accents of Tailored Purple or Mugello Red––inspired by Christian Louboutin’s coveted red soles, of course––the lambswool floor mats and powder blue coat as smooth as Nat King Cole’s vocals certainly could not deny that this Wraith has impeccable style.
During the creative process, ‘timelessness’ was the strongest angle when it came to Inspired by Fashion – rather than fast-moving consumer fashion trends. –Michelle Lusby
I love how fashion can transcend the runway from art at a gallery to athletes walking into the stadium on game day, and as Rolls – Royce has proved, to vehicles. The latter I had the opportunity to experience first-hand thanks to my good pal Melanie Batenchuk of Be Car Chic. I’ll leave the car review to the professional, but I will say that I found the Wraith exquisite and intriguing just as I often do watching a Marchesa gown float down the runway. Taking a spin, we too floated down city streets as if riding on a cloud. What’s more is that it’s hand-stitched with the keenest attention to detail, sure to please designer Murad Zuhair whose gowns grace the red carpet in no less form than timeless perfection.
“The team wanted to create three distinctive Wraiths, inspired by the film, fashion and music industries. During the creative process, ‘timelessness’ was the strongest angle when it came to Inspired by Fashion – rather than fast-moving consumer fashion trends,” Michelle Lusby states. Timeless, no doubt. Especially at that price tag. Nonetheless, this triad is right up my alley of interests. Maybe one day my experience will manifest itself into more than a pleasant wraith of memories.
