Update: Dolce & Gabbana's Vibrant Kitchen Gadgets Are Now In Stores Near You
UPDATE: We couldn't help but get excited when Dolce & Gabbana revealed their high-fashion take on upscale kitchen appliances last year. In a collaboration with Smeg, Dolce & Gabbana teased both foodies and fashionistas with hand-painted toasters, food processors, and even refrigerators. The "Sicily Is My Love" line is finally coming to U.S. stores—you'll be able to get your hands on these chic appliances at Williams Sonoma and Neiman Marcus starting in March.
If you can't wait until then, Neiman Marcus is taking pre-orders for a few of these gorgeous appliances online right now. This floral tea kettle is equally as breathtaking as it is useful, a true show-stopper on any kitchen countertop.
The same can be said for the rest of the "breakfast set"—you'll find a vibrant juicer that will turn heads, and a intricate toaster that will definitely make up for any burnt toast scent lingering in your kitchen.
But don't get too excited: because of Dolce & Gabbana's unique approach to making these one-of-a-kind appliances, each item in this set costs $600. And the crown jewel of the collection comes at a price that will stop your heart—each of the painted refrigerators are $50,000. Two models have already sold out, which is equally as flooring.
You can find the rest of Dolce & Gabbana's fashion-forward kitchen appliances in stores next month, where you can pick up official D&G blenders, mixers, juicers, and a espresso machine. The final price tags on those items haven't been made available, but we're betting it'll be more than your weekly splurge allowance.

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.
