Lancia Dilambda: Serapian's Unique Bespoke Experience
You may remember seeing the name Serapian around here before in our exclusive interview with Giovanni Nodari about the brand's craft techniques and history.
THE LATEST NEWS IS THE MASTER CRAFTSMEN OF SERAPIAN ARE ALWAYS READY TO CHALLENGE THEIR CRAFTING ABILITIES WITH EXCEPTIONAL REQUESTS — find the story behind this special order below.
The Lancia Dilambda Cabriolet Carlton BS was specifically designed and produced in 1930 for the truly eccentric British Colonel Lieutenant Sir Bernard Montgomery Hall, who requested every single detail to be customized.
LANCIA IS ONE OF THE MOST PRESTIGIOUS ITALIAN BRANDS, and, over time, in its selection of coach builders, it has managed to balance technological innovation, and quality construction.
Lost in 1949, this Lancia Dilambda suddenly reappeared thanks to Mr. Filippo Sole, an Italian who picked Serapian to redesign the interiors with their Mosaico leathercraft signature.
Strengthening the statement that fashion and design go hand in hand, Serapian always brings its expertise to the table on both fronts.
"Thanks to the hundreds of leathers my family has collected since the Maison was founded, we now have at our disposal one of the widest collection of luxury Italian leathers and materials in the world. Cachemire leather, for example, is an exclusive leather which takes its name from the precious silk known for its softness. Likewise, Evoluzione leather is a combination of artisanal craftsmanship and technology that creates a distinctive texture both resistant and functional." — Giovanni Nodari.
Serapian's goal, done with devotion daily, is present the exquisite beauty of its art to the world. And with that said, the label also has two leather bags designed to fit the car precisely. The craftsmanship perfectly reflects the brand's thrilling new concept of bespoke, which is ready to be extended into the realm of accessories.
These features, along with its joyful and classy nature, make it a car deserving of a closer look.
