The Starlight headliner on a Rolls-Royce is the inspiration for the “Starlight Tuxedo”.
The Starlight Headliner’s unique effect is achieved through delicate fibre optic strands in the roof of Ghost or Wraith – with the brightness of each ‘star’ able to be adjusted to suit the mood of a customer. Typically, the leather headlining of a Rolls-Royce is perforated by 1,340 fibre optics. The constellation of each Starlight Headliner is built completely unique to the owner and can take up to a week to handcraft by two dedicated crafts-persons at the House of Rolls-Royce in Goodwood.
Redefining the classic cocktail jacket for evening wear, the Starlight Tuxedo is an incarnation of modern elegance. Commissioned from a silver lurex, this glimmering tuxedo is a paragon of style.
The ‘Classic Velvet Plum” Tuxedo was Inspired by the rich palette of Rolls-Royce colours, from which customers have 44,000 bespoke choices. Colour has become a defining owner signature, with some colours mixed exclusively and named for the exterior of a customer’s Rolls-Royce, or applied to the interior in a series of carefully designed contrasts. The legendary Rolls-Royce colour and piano-shine finish consists of at least five layers of paint – two of which are a high-gloss clear coat – painstakingly polished for up to five hours by hand.
The Bespoke Corner Tailors have created an uncommonly rich blend of silk and cotton, incorporating a deep plum velvet into the tuxedo to produce stylish wear that is as timeless as it is desirable. Reminiscent of the powerful, sleek lines of a Rolls Royce, this slimly silhouetted and generously lapelled coat is sartorial at the height of luxury.
