Rolls Royce make picnic set (Yogi Bear tries to steal it)
It is British Summer Time, which of course means that it is quite warm outside even though it is still pissing down with rain.
For those perilously brief moments of sun, we like to flock outdoors and complain about wasps, humans and other irritants. We also like to eat food while we're out there, despite the fact that eating outdoors is a pain in the arse.
So if you're insisting on doing so, you may as well do it in a really suave manner with this Rolls Royce picnic set. Yep. The Rolls Royce motor car people.
The designers and craftspeople at Goodwood have made a picnic set so posh that it probably pukes if you try to put a soggy tuna-mayo roll in it. Don't even think about stocking it up with Tangy Toms crisps. It sprouts an arm and slaps you in the face.
Rolls Royce took this pickernic set rather seriously, spending around six months and 1,500 hours designing and creating it. Apparently, the cutlery you get in it was designed by David Mellor. Not that David Mellor surely?
There doesn't appear to be a price online for it, if you're interested in buying one. Alas, it seems that you have to get down to the super exclusive Salon Prive at London’s Hurlington Club (taking place July 21st – 23rd) where presumably, you don't need to ask how much things cost because you're comfortable in the knowledge that you can afford it regardless.
