HOW'S the Serenity for those living life at the top? Well, here's a snapshot.

Rolls-Royce has revealed "Serenity" at this year's Geneva International Motor Show to highlught "bespoke luxury".

"Take the best that exists and make it better." That encapsulates the Serenity which is a Rolls-Royce Phantom under its skin.

A standard Phantom would usually set you back $855,000, but expect this beauty to well surpass the $1 million mark. 

The Bespoke team looked to Suzhou, China, the town renowned for its creation of imperial embroidery. The team sourced the unspun silk thread and had it hand-dyed by the Chinese craftspeople.

The numerous colours of silk thread were painstakingly blended into the highest quality warp which has 140 threads per centimetre to result in the green colour of the underlying silk fabric.

Once prepared, the plain silk was transferred to London where the blossom motif designed by Haye and Lusby - a uniquely modern take on centuries-old silk Chinoiserie - began to flourish across the fabric as British and Chinese craftspeople embroidered their vision of copper-coloured branches and white petals.

Taking its cue from the world of modern furniture design, the rear occupants' elevated and powerful seating position has been accentuated with the valances of the seats made from rare Smoked Cherrywood. Reminding one of the drivers' position in the early 1900s motor car, the seats in the front of the car are clothed in white leather.

Continuing the theme of ultimate luxury, the luggage compartment of Serenity is lined in white leather with white carpet.

As a final touch, two parasols featuring the Serenity motif are held by Bespoke leather loops incorporated into the boot lid.

Its Bespoke Mother of Pearl paint is the most expensive one-off paint ever developed by Rolls-Royce Motor Cars. It has been added in a three stage pearl effect and hand-polished for 12 hours by the craftspeople at the Home of Rolls-Royce at Goodwood to deliver this shimmering presence.

While every Rolls-Royce is special, nearly every customer desires extraordinary distinguishing features to make their car completely unique.
