'The Rolls-Royce of'. You know you're at the top when you're often referenced as the benchmark for the best in something. Well this, ladies and gentlemen, is the Rolls-Royce of champagne chests, in more ways than one. But for starters, this Tudor Oak-accented champagne chest is crafted by the luxurious automobile brand itself.
The Rolls-Royce Champagne Chest opens up with a touch of a button to reveal a set that's designed for four guests (or for yourself if you're feeling really indulgent). At a starting price of approximately SGD63,000, the bespoke creation comes with four hand-blown glass champagne flutes—each polished aluminium base comes etched with the 'RR' monogram—that is arranged within the chest as a nod to the V12 engine, four cotton napkins that are each embroidered with the 'RR' monogram, two mother-of-pearl spoons for caviar, and three porcelain bowls.
Because each Rolls-Royce Champagne Chest is a bespoke creation, configurations can be made according to your taste. The caviar configuration for example, includes two thermal caviar caissons, as well as two blini caissons—all to complement your champagne hour with.
There's no doubt that the price is steep. But this is bespoke luxury, after all. And there are not that many things that are as indulgent as sipping champagne from a dedicated chest that's positioned right next to you, while you gaze into the clear, chlorine-treated water of your pool. Luxe.
But if SGD63,000 for the piece is too much, here are five other ways to indulge.
Four velvet blazers with astrology embroidery by Saint Laurent (SGD14,460 each)
Because you're a star, you need an evening blazer that's decorated with actual star signs of the universe. Pro tip: ask a girl for her star sign and then ask if she can point it out of the jacket. (No, please don't).
12 dressing gowns by Gucci x Dover Street Market (SGD5,120 each)
You can't possibly lounge by your pool in just any mere robe from Spotlight or Muji. It has to be in something that reflects a decadent you. It has to be Gucci. And it has to be green because that's the colour people will turn when they see you in one.
21 cotton and cashmere sweatpants by The Row (approximately SGD2,970 each via Mr Porter)
Wool? Please. Your delicate skin is too good for anything that scratches or itches. Your sweatpants must be made from the softest of cashmere, combed softly by artisans as they whisper sweet nothings to the goats.
59 bamboo cheese sets by Lorenzi Milano (approximately SGD1,055 each via MatchesFashion.com)
A luxurious champagne set needs to be accompanied by a cheese platter set that looks equally as indulgent. Cheese from Cold Storage will never taste the same ever again once you've enjoyed cheese place atop of this Lorenzi Milano set.
62 pairs of Intrecciato slides by Bottega Venata (SGD1,010 each)
Don't even think of wearing a pair of sensible, rubber slides at the poolside. These leather slides are a more eco-friendly option and with 62 pairs at your disposal, getting them wet is really not a big deal.
