Rolls-Royce and Hermès create a bespoke Phantom Oribe


Rolls-Royce has teamed up with French luxury brand Hermès for a bespoke Phantom commissioned by Japanese entrepreneur and art collector Yusaku Maezawa. Christened ‘Phantom Oribe’, the luxury limousine gets inspired by a 16th century Japanese pottery style that is also part of Maezawa’s collection.

The exterior of the Phantom Oribe has a dual-tone finish, where the upper section is painted in a bespoke Oribe Green, while the lower section is in Cream White. Rolls-Royce is also letting this specially created green paint to be used on the client’s private jet. Apparently, the paint perfectly captures the lustrous, deep-green glaze of the aforementioned 16th century ceramics.

It’s Hermès’ responsibility to match the cabin with the exterior of the car. The interior is dominated by Hermès Enea Green leather that can be found not only on the seats but also on the door cards and the steering wheel as well. Soft Seashell White accents are matched with lambswool floor mats to create a sense of light and space throughout. Complementing the leather interior is a generous application of Open Pore Royal Walnut veneer; notice the wooden speaker frets on the door cards. For Phantom’s Gallery (on the dashboard), Hermès commissioned an artwork based on a design by the French artist and illustrator Pierre Péron (1905–1988).
