The collaboration with kitchen manufacturer Smeg is titled “Sicily Is My Love,” and we’re guaranteeing you’ve never seen anything like this for your kitchen before.
We always get a kick of excitement when we see a high-fashion brand enter the kitchen – but your eyes will light up when you see what Dolce & Gabbana has up its sleeves for your own home.
D&G has teamed up once again with kitchen retailer Smeg to design an elaborately embellished line of products that illustrate vibrant colors and patterns represented in Italian culture. The creative brainchild of both brands is called “Sicily Is My Love” and promises fans that experts from both high-fashion and industrial design have created one-of-a-kind products that truly are made in Italy.
While it isn’t the first time the pair have collaborated– Dolce & Gabbana hand-painted 100 refrigerators last year– this project offers a rather expansive (and sometimes expensive) selection of appliances decked out in luxuriant prints popular in Sicily.
Eye-popping illustrations include symbols like lemons, prickly pears, and bright red cherries, all tied together by a design known as “crocchi,” a traditionally triangular motif. Sprawling florals and beautiful depictions of Mount Etna also make it onto the products, which were largely designed by Domenico Dolce and Stefano Gabbana themselves.
The illustrated motifs can be found on things like mixers, blenders, juicers, a tea kettle, coffee machines, and toasters.
While I’m sure you’re already whipping out your credit card, prices for these fabulously unique products aren’t quite yet available. But we’d bet our bottom dollar that Sicilian culture might cost you a very pretty, albeit expensive, penny.
To see more of the breathtaking aesthetics and keep an eye on prices, head over to Dolce & Gabbana’s site right here, and shop these appliances when they’re available for purchase later this October.
