It is now possible to pre-order the Dolce & Gabbana kitchen appliances by SMEG!
After the success of last year, when SMEG and Dolce & Gabbana created 100 exclusive hand-painted fridges together ($50,000 each and sold out), the collaboration of experts has focused on small appliances characterized by themes symbolizing an aesthetic strongly linked to Sicily, Italy and its cooking.
The collection includes smaller products such as toasters, juicers, coffee machines, kettles, mixers, immersion and centrifugal blenders: 8 models in total, available soon with prices starting from $600 for the simplest products.
The products will be decorated by hand with golden lemons, citrus fruit or prickly pears, which represent some of the typical Sicilian decorations, framed by triangular geometric patterns called “Crocchi”.
There are also delicate floral motifs inspired by the coasts and landscapes of southern Italy, as well as fascinating images of Mount Etna, arabesques, patterns similar to stylized acanthus leaves.
These are the symbols of an aesthetic inextricably associated with Sicily, the place that has touched the soul of Domenico Dolce and Stefano Gabbana, and associated more generally with Italy and its cuisine, of which Smeg has always been an excellent interpreter.
The new products were shown at the Milan design fair in 2017 and are finally available to customers.
The two companies belong to two different creative sectors but they have the same strong values, with roots in the territory and a tradition of “Made in Italy” excellence. That’s why they have a deep respect for tradition and their creativity that allows them to combine their skills, different specialties, and sensibilities.
Moreover, Dolce & Gabbana had already “dressed” packs of Italian pasta such as paccheri, penne, spaghetti made by the pasta factory Di Martino di Gragnano, “signed” boxes in limited edition mainly destined to the United States.
