Dolce&Gabbana’s New Kitchen Appliances Double As Chic Decor
SMEG has partnered with the high-end designer to give your toasters, coffee makers, and more a major upgrade.
If the appliances in your kitchen are going to take up the prime real estate of your counters, they might as well look good. And not just look good, but look stunning, eye-catching, and as if you strolled right into a museum in Italy. Dolce&Gabbana and SMEG collaborated on a range of home appliances in a collection called Sicily is my Love, and we bet they’re the most intricate you’ve ever seen.
This made in Italy project where high fashion and design combine forces to create unique appliances is not just for looks. SMEG appliances, a personal favorite, are high quality and with the colorfully artistic decoration by Dolce&Gabbana, what’s not to love? The collection will have toasters, citrus juicers, coffee machines, kettles, blenders, stand mixers, and slow juicers for purchase.
All of these go-to kitchen appliances are decorated with reflective interpretations of Sicilian folklore. Triangular motifs, known as crocchi, frame the fruity selection of Sicilian decorations, lemons, prickly pears, and bright red cherries, as well as floral motifs. The themes and decorative symbols are relevant to Sicily and the aesthetic of the founding designers of Dolce&Gabbana.
Like any piece of art, kitchen appliance art doesn’t come cheap. The kettle, juicer, and toaster will all retail for $600 each.
This new venture follows the success of a previous collaboration where SMEG and Dolce&Gabbana delivered on 100 unique hand-painted refrigerators, each now available for $50,000.
