Luxury goods prosper in Southeast Asia as Rolls-Royce showroom opens in Bangkok

As US and European economies cool, Asian buyers are driving luxury retail markets these days. Literally: Rolls-Royce just opened its first showroom in a luxury shopping mall in Bangkok, Thailand. Southeast Asia has recently seen an explosion in luxury car sales. In the new Rolls-Royce storefront, customers can specify and customize virtually every piece of their Rolls-Royce. The bespoke British luxury brand offers more than 44,000 different colors of leather and also allows buyers to dream-up their own paint color, should one of the factory options not be quite up to muster. Some customers, Rolls-Royce brags, have even asked that the wood fitted to their Rolls-Royce come from their own orchard.
