Twenty Years of Rolls-Royce at Goodwood via 360 MAGAZINE.

Twenty years at Goodwood

The home of Rolls-Royce from 2003-2023.

Rolls-Royce’s unprecedented success comes as, in January 2023, the company marks the 20th anniversary of the Home of Rolls-Royce at Goodwood. Its transformation – from offering a single model, Phantom, and building just one motor car a day – to today’s record figures is the result of a long-term strategy based on sustainable growth, careful management and planning, and the successful reinvention of the brand.

The past decade, in particular, has seen Rolls‑Royce consciously refine and rejuvenate its brand and product portfolio to reflect its clients’ changing requirements, tastes, and demographics while retaining its innate exclusivity and rarity. As both a true luxury house and an innovative, engineering-led company, Rolls‑Royce represents, as it always has, the very highest levels of craftsmanship, technology, luxury and creativity. 

  • Rolls-Royce celebrates the first 20 years of production at its Goodwood manufacturing centre
  • A story of continuous progress and evolution, told through 20 individual models
  • Each created and handmade at the Home of Rolls-Royce since 2003
  • Includes EX experimental cars, which revived a naming convention last seen in the 1950s
  • Describes an arc of technical innovation and responses to changing client requirements
  • Leads to the new all-electric era ushered in by the Rolls-Royce Spectre

1.      Phantom, 2003
The original ‘Goodwood Phantom’ was the seventh generation to wear what is now the longest-established nameplate in automotive history. With its marriage of technology, comfort, performance, and the signature ‘Magic Carpet Ride’, it set a new standard for every model that has followed.

2.     100EX, 2004
Produced to mark the centenary of the first meeting between Charles Rolls and Henry Royce, this was the first Experimental Car produced by Rolls-Royce Motor Cars under BMW Group ownership. Powered by an extraordinary 9-litre V16 engine, it was never intended for production but was the direct forebear for what would become the celebrated Phantom Drophead Coupé.

3.      Phantom Extended, 2005
Unveiled at the Geneva Motor Show in March 2005, Phantom Extended was 250 mm (9.8 in) longer than the ‘standard’ Phantom. This created additional legroom in the rear cabin, making this model especially popular with clients who prefer to be chauffeur-driven.

4.     101EX, 2006
Like 100EX, this experimental prototype was built on a shortened version of Phantom’s aluminium space frame, with the body panels constructed in carbon-fibre composite. It would find enduring life and global fame in its eventual production guise as Phantom Coupé, powered by the iconic 6.75-litre V12 engine.

5.      Phantom Drophead Coupé, 2007
One of the most sought-after models ever produced at Goodwood, the Phantom Drophead Coupé stunned the world on its debut. With distinctive styling derived from 100EX (see above), its defining feature is the interior wood veneering that flows around the cabin into the teak tonneau cover, inspired by a racing yacht deck.

6.     Phantom Coupé, 2008
With its pillarless construction, this was a true hardtop two-door coupé – the first Rolls-Royce of its type to be produced in more than two decades. Like its drophead sibling, Phantom Coupé incorporated many of the design features and construction techniques developed on the experimental 101EX.

7.      200EX, 2009
Presented at the Geneva Motor Show in March 2009, 200EX was the experimental car that responded to client feedback for a more approachable and driver-orientated Rolls-Royce.

8.     Ghost, 2010
Designed for a new generation of ascendent Rolls-Royce clients, Ghost immediately won praise for its simple, contemporary design and effortless, dynamic performance. To date it is the most commercially successful model in Rolls-Royce history.

9.      102EX, 2011
Known as the Phantom Experimental Electric (EE), this one-off electric prototype version of Phantom began Rolls-Royce’s exploration into suitable technology to power future generations of its motor cars. 

10.     Ghost Extended, 2011
Responding to feedback from clients who prefer to be chauffeur-driven, Rolls-Royce introduced an extended version of Ghost, offering additional space and comfort for rear-seat passengers while maintaining the motor car’s more focused driving characteristics.

11.      Wraith, 2013
The fastback Wraith was intended as the ultimate gran turismo; a car that embodied the bold, pioneering spirit, sense of adventure and love of speed that inspired the marque’s co-founder, The Hon Charles Stewart Rolls.

12.     Dawn, 2016
The definitive super-luxury four-seater convertible, Dawn, was designed to enable four adults to travel sociably together in complete comfort. The roof is a design and engineering masterpiece: dubbed ‘the Silent Ballet’ the mechanism operates in complete silence in just 22 seconds, and at cruising speeds of up to 50km/h; with the roof closed, the interior is as silent as a Rolls-Royce Wraith.

13.      Black Badge Wraith and Black Badge Ghost, 2016
The Black Badge family introduced the world to the marque’s enfants terribles, subverting perceptions of what a Rolls-Royce ‘should’ be. These variants are more powerful and specifically engineered to deliver an even more direct, engaging driving experience, while still offering near-limitless opportunities for Bespoke personalisation.The result was an even more agile and involving motoring experience, without compromising the intrinsic elements of the effortless Rolls-Royce ‘Magic Carpet Ride’.

14.     103EX, 2016
Perhaps the most radical experimental car ever produced at Goodwood, Rolls-Royce Vision Next 100, codenamed 103EX, presented the marque’s uncompromised view of the future of luxury mobility. Fully electric, with a completely autonomous drive and enhanced artificial intelligence, it made an unequivocal statement about Rolls-Royce’s future direction, both in terms of electric power and effortless, highly personalised travel.

15.      ‘Sweptail’, 2017
Rolls-Royce revived the art of coachbuilding with the magnificent ‘Sweptail’, described at the time as ‘automotive Haute Couture’. Inspired by coachbuilt Rolls-Royces and racing yachts of the 1920s and 30s, this unique two-seat coupé featured a panoramic glass roof and a pair of attaché cases concealed behind the coach doors.

16    Phantom 8, 2017
No nameplate occupies a more revered place in the pantheon of great cars and indeed, luxury goods as Phantom. The task to re-invent it for a bold, new era was therefore approached with exquisite care. The result was a Phantom that responded to the changing sensibilities of a new generation whilst maintaining the iconic presence that ensures its ongoing status as the “Best Car in the World”.

17.      Cullinan, 2018
Cullinan is truly the ‘Rolls-Royce of SUVs’, designed and built to take younger, successful high-net-worth individuals to the ends of the Earth in ultimate comfort. With its ‘effortless, everywhere’ capabilities, endless Bespoke possibilities, and unique lifestyle features – including the Recreation Module – it has become one of the most desirable luxury goods on the planet.

18.     Black Badge Cullinan, 2019
Cullinan revelled in its new, darker persona, which included a more powerful 6.7-litre V12 engine, black 22-inch forged alloy wheels, Pantheon grille and Spirit of Ecstasy mascot, plus the first painted brake callipers ever fitted to a factory-delivered Rolls-Royce.

19.      New Ghost, 2020
When it came to present a new Ghost, Rolls-Royce responded to the requirement from a new ascendent generation of successful women and men for a motor car, perfectly aligned with new codes of luxury. The result is an aesthetic that prioritises minimalist design and celebrates material substance. The motor car was also engineered to possess an engaging and dynamic character with no compromise to the serenity and comfort in the rear suite.

20.     Boat Tail, 2021
The Boat Tail commissions took Rolls-Royce Coachbuild into new realms of complexity and audacity, in a demanding technical and creative project that lasted almost four years. A genuine objet d’art, this entirely handcrafted motor car demonstrated the marque’s commitment to coachbuilding as a central part of its future direction and strategy.

Gucci’s Deliciarum High Jewelry via 360 MAGAZINE.

Gucci’s Hortus Deliciarum

Gucci is adding an exclusive selection of new pieces to its Hortus Deliciarum High Jewelry collection to be presented on January 24, 2023, during Paris Haute Couture at the House’s Place Vendôme boutique.

Hortus Deliciarum — meaning ‘Garden of Delights’ in Latin — blends Gucci’s rich heritage in Italian craftsmanship and its ever-distinctive creativity in one-of-a-kind masterpieces distinguished by unique artistry, exceptional quality, and acute attention to detail. The current chapter, the third since the collection’s launch in 2019, draws inspiration from the world of travel and the memorable moments that every journey can bring.

The new additions to the Hortus Deliciarum collection include necklaces, bracelets, earrings, and multi-finger rings, divided into different themes. The designs explore tantalizing facets of the natural and animal kingdom, placing jewelry artistry center stage. These pieces evoke distant, exotic, and magical worlds, exciting the imagination with Gucci’s signature painterly approach to high jewelry craftsmanship.

A selection of pieces features fresh interpretations of Gucci’s distinctive Lion Head and Tiger Head motifs, symbolizing strength, courage, and passion. Flawless, fancy cut vivid gemstones, from aquamarines to yellow sapphires, add vibrant touches to these dynamic designs.

The collection includes several new creations showcasing a captivating combination of multicolored stones that are inspired by the concept of prismatic beauty and specifically designed to catch the light. These include a brilliant multi-finger ring – the result of 100 hours of meticulous production – crafted in yellow gold with a beautiful 38.8 carat green tourmaline centerpiece surrounded by diamonds. An equally stunning yellow gold cuff earring offers an elegant explosion of garnets, yellow beryl, rubellite, and diamonds. Here, Gucci blends the modernity of a cuff style with the exquisite beauty of warm-toned gems and dainty, flowing lines.

Other stunning pieces are distinguished by cascades of dancing diamonds, inspired by the beauty of shooting stars and the sparkling torrents of a waterfall. A highlight of this selection is a parure comprising a dazzling white gold necklace and matching drop earrings. Involving 300 hours of production, the necklace features diamond-embellished starbursts trimmed with lady-like diamond bows, while the earrings reveal diamond-encrusted bows and chandelier-like crystal droplets around two teardrop cut diamonds with a total of 16.7 carats.

A yellow gold bracelet, meanwhile, showcases a diamond-embellished chevron pattern and an oval-shaped 16 carat rubellite tourmaline, offering a striking geometric interplay of straight lines and smooth curves. This exceptional creation takes 200 hours to produce.

Intricately crafted and full of surprising details, an ornate diamond parure pays homage to the majestic beauty of natural landscapes. A diamond-encrusted geometric chain necklace is teamed with a stunning round-cut mandarin garnet pendant embellished with dainty emerald leaves. This can be teamed with a matching pair of jacket earrings, also in fresh and surprising shades of green and mandarin, offering a dazzling 40.5 carats of jewels for the necklace and 15.3 carats for the earrings.

To complete the collection, new diamond-embellished solitaire rings shine in an array of hues that resemble the changing colors of the sky. A sculpted, white gold design mesmerizes with a hexagonal 14.7 carat tanzanite centerpiece, while three other white gold rings each present a heart-shaped gemstone in a vivid color: a 9 carat blue tourmaline, a 12.6 carat peach tourmaline, or an 11.5 carat pink tourmaline.

The Hortus Deliciarum High Jewelry collection, launched in Paris in 2019, was followed by a second chapter presented on Italy’s Lake Maggiore in 2021 while the third and current collection was initially unveiled in Rome in 2022.

Louis Vuitton Men’s Fall-Winter 2023 show via 360 MAGAZINE.

LV MEN’S FW23

Louis Vuitton’s Men’s Fall-Winter 2023 Show and Collection. In collaboration with KidSuper’s Colm Dillane, this collection was inspired by the formative moments of upbringing and the rites of passage from childhood to adulthood.

The looks draw on themes inherent to Louis Vuitton men’s practice: formative development and the universal human experiences that unite us across geography and cultures. Evaluating the impact of the digital age, nods to connectivity are further explored through techniques, motifs, and silhouettes. The show featured a moving performance by artist Rosalía, her innovative musical fusions and distinctive style heightening the core philosophy of the collection.

The show’s stage was based on the ideology of “growing up”, and French filmmakers Michel and Olivier Gondry constructed a house in which a boy’s first stages of life unfolded, culminating in adulthood, where memories and experiences of the inner child remain eternally present.

Grammy and 12-time Latin Grammy-award winning recording artist ROSALÍA executed a live performance at the Louis Vuitton Men’s Fall-Winter 2023 Fashion Show and also served as the musical curator for the show.

Rosalía also included DJ Clara3000 as the house DJ.

Genres included hyperpop, funk brasilero, dembow, flamenco. It was Rosalía’s way of highlighting and sharing the music and genres that inspire her while also acknowledging her roots and what helped her to bring MOTOMAMI to life.

Hottest Fashion Trends

As we wave goodbye to 2022 and welcome in the New Year, one thing on many people’s to-do lists is creating a wardrobe that will not only impress but serve a purpose all year long.

Fashion experts at Boohoo have predicted the top trends of 2023 in the hopes of helping prepare your capsule wardrobes, de-clutter and donate any out-of-fashion pieces and give insight into what’s trending in 2023.

Biker Girl

The biker trend stems from pulling nostalgic leather and grunge-style pieces, incorporating them into everyday wear, and spicing up a party look. The trend is often seen when mixing feminine silhouettes with boxy oversized leather pieces. Celebrity fashion favourites such as Sydney Sweeney and Hailey Bieber are often seen stepping out in biker-style outfits, proving just how popular the biker look is and will be this year.

Searches for ‘leather pants’ are at an average of 129,000 times a month in the U.S., alongside searches for ‘biker jacket’ seeing a 101% increase over the past 90 days and searches for ‘biker boots’ increased by 165% over the past month.

Flashy Metallics

At the end of last year, we saw the re-introduction of all things metallic, with silver taking over the internet and the runway. The style has already become an obsession on social media, especially on TikTok. The hashtag #silveroutfit has surpassed over three million views, and #metallicoutfits also reached an impressive 595,200 views.

Many might believe shiny metallic outfits are just for the sparkle season at Christmas, but that is not the case. It is also not just limited to gold and silver pieces as the industry is seeing more and more colours venturing into popularity. Violets, baby blues and shimmery greens have all popped onto the radar recently, which means the high-shine style is set to be big in 2023.

Cowboy Core

Cowboy core was extremely popular throughout all the seasons last year, and it is here to stay. Western-style pieces are a great way to inject some fun and sass into your 2023 wardrobe; whether it be a pair of statement cowboy boots, a studded suede vest or an oversized plaid shirt, this trend is set to stick.

Something particular that caught fans’ eyes is Margot Robbie. Whilst filming for her upcoming movie Barbie, the actress, paired a neon pink western-style two-piece with a white cowboy hat and matching bandana. Another celebrity that hugely influenced Cowboy Core is Harry Styles after appearing at multiple of his concerts wearing cowboy hats. Fans swooned over him at his concerts while wearing cowboy hats and feather boas, which increased searches for ‘cowgirl hat’ in the US to increase 117%.

Cargo Couture

Practicality in fashion is essential for some when it comes to styling outfits which is why the cargo trend is back and better than ever. Cargo pants give the perfect baggy silhouette whilst also providing comfort, and many styles come equipped with deep pockets, which is ideal for those who like to travel light.

Searches in the U.S searches for ‘cargo pants’ are at an average 306,000 times per month in America. Cargo skirts have also started to pop up on the scene, and searches for ‘cargo skirt’ over the past month have increased by 123%, proving the trend’s popularity.

Barbie Core

This girly aesthetic based on Mattel Barbie dolls is definitely one for those that love a preppy, bold and bright outfit. This trend is mainly focused on bubblegum pink and fuchsia pieces inspired by all things girly, which was a huge trend in the early 2000s.

With Greta Gerwig’s Barbie movie set to hit our screens later this year, we can expect to see hot-pink styles all over social media this year.

Playful Professional

If a capsule wardrobe is more suited to your lifestyle, playful blazers and two-piece suits are a great way to stay classy and fun both in and out of the office this year. The style has taken over TikTok, with thousands of users showing off their outfits of the day and inspirational style videos showing how to style the playful professional trend. The hashtag #blazeroutfit has surpassed 320.8 million views on the platform.

Boohoo conducted the research.

Louis Vuitton’s latest reprieve from the monotony of winter: the iconic LV Ski Collection, offering another year of beloved, seasonal essentials. Versatility, sophistication, and graphic impact define this array of active wear.

2022 Range Rover P530 First Edition activation in meatpacking district via 360 MAGAZINE.

Range Rover P530 First Edition

The 2022 Land Rover Range Rover P530 First Edition is a clear definition of a successful product and one of the most stunning vehicles on the market, attracting the attention of car enthusiasts as well as the general public. This new British SUV model showcases non-hybrid and new hybrid engines with adopted rear-wheel steering and new accommodative seven-occupant seating. The P530 provides a range of customizations for customers including notable options between short and long wheelbases, luxury and comfortable amenities, and a split rear tailgate.

Design

The first edition of this enhanced Rover was designed for both a breathtaking melding of function and design that reconstructs the previous models. Lead designer, Gerry McGovern, and his team reimagined an icon. Gerry and the team indeed successfully crafted a remarkable fifth-generation Range Rover P530 and arrived at classic sleek, pared-down elegance. Imagine  23-inch veers uniquely filling the arcs and “the hidden” vertical rear light. Check out the vertical taillights that appear when illuminated that indeed make a difference for the rear. The switchgear is more upscale, sleeker, and softer than previous models. For the first time, the first edition Range Rover has an additional third-row feature that expands the previous linear design, making the interior a show stunner.

ROLLS-ROYCE × SACHA JAFRI

ROLLS-ROYCE UNVEILS BESPOKE PHANTOM ‘THE SIX ELEMENTS’ IN DUBAI FEATURING HAND-PAINTED SACHA JAFRI ARTWORK.

  • Rolls-Royce reveals Phantom ‘The Six Elements’ at a gala event in Dubai, UAE
  • A series of six one-of-one Phantom Extended Series II motor cars, representing an unprecedented convergence of fine art, design, technology and craftsmanship
  • Created by the Rolls-Royce Bespoke Collective, at the Home of Rolls-Royce at Goodwood, resident Bespoke designer in the Private Office Dubai and dealer partners in Dubai and Abu Dhabi, in collaboration with world-renowned British artist Sacha Jafri
  • Each car includes a unique Gallery artwork, hand-painted by Jafri, inspired by one of the five traditional elements: Earth, Water, Fire, Wind and Air – plus a sixth, Humanity
  • At stage one of its journey, the Series has raised in excess of $1 million for charity; with a unique fundraising NFT in each motor car creating ‘the Rolls-Royce that keeps on giving’

Rolls-Royce has unveiled its unique Bespoke series Phantom ‘The Six Elements’ at a private gala ceremony in Dubai, UAE.

This unprecedented project, initiated by Rolls-Royce Motor Cars Dubai and Rolls-Royce Motor Cars Abu Dhabi, comprises six Rolls-Royce Phantom Extended Series II motor cars, each one entirely individual and featuring its own specially-commissioned artwork, hand-painted by one of the world’s most influential living painters, British artist Sacha Jafri, who is based between Dubai, London, and New York.

These stunning works of art are displayed in the gallery, the unique glass-enclosed space running the length of Phantom’s fascia. Each is inspired by one of the five traditional elements: Earth, Water, Fire, Wind and Air. The sixth, Humanity, references Sacha Jafri’s best-known work, ‘The Journey of Humanity’, which holds the official Guinness World Record for the largest painting ever produced on canvas.

Phantom ‘The Six Elements’ was designed, developed and hand-crafted by the Bespoke Collective at the Home of Rolls-Royce at Goodwood, in collaboration with the resident Bespoke designer in the Rolls-Royce Private Office in Dubai. The project began in late 2020 and has taken two years to complete.

As well as their individual Gallery artworks, the cars feature a number of additional Bespoke elements reflecting Rolls-Royce’s unrivaled capabilities. These include Jafri’s personalised Heart-motif in the hand-painted Coachline, and a unique Six-Elements engraved base for each car’s Spirit of Ecstasy mascot.Accordingly, each car features not only its own original Jafri artwork, but also its own unique NFT, which the owner may sell independently if they choose to do so. With every trade of the NFT, a royalty will be paid into a digital wallet, raising funds for the future charitable donations.  The owner can view the NFT using a bespoke Jafri Heart-motif QR code embedded within their motor car’s glove compartment

At the unveiling, it was announced that the project, at stage one of its journey, has already substantially exceeded its initial $1 million target, with all six motor cars have been allocated to customers in Dubai and the wider Middle East region.

“Bespoke IS Rolls-Royce, and our Bespoke Collective’s skills, artistry, and reputation are unrivaled. As this amazing project demonstrates, the world’s leading artists now actively seek opportunities to work with us, extending and informing their own practice and creating motor cars that are works of art in their own right. With his wonderful hand-painted gallery pieces, Sacha Jafri provides an extraordinary demonstration of how Phantom Series II provides the perfect blank canvas for bespoke commissions.

We’re delighted to see these motoring masterpieces come to life after a remarkable journey of collaboration, creativity and craftsmanship. We’re also thrilled that the project has fulfilled its original, primary purpose, and raised such a significant sum for worthy causes. I would like to congratulate everyone involved, both at Goodwood and in the Middle East, on this inspiring achievement.”
