Italian luxury fashion house Dolce & Gabbana has partnered with kitchenware company Smeg on a collection of high end designer appliances. The collection, called “Sicily Is My Love”, started as an exhibit at Milan Design Week in 2016.
Dolce & Gabbana has teamed up with the Italian company Smeg to manufacture a line of beautiful, vibrant colored juice machines, toasters, espresso machines, teapots, blenders, mixers, and much more. Every one of these products are decorated with reflective interpretations of Sicilian folklore. Lemons, prickly pears, and bright red cherries are simply a selection of Sicilian decorations which have been framed in triangular motifs referred to as crocchi, that decorate these small appliances.
Together with crocchi, the appliances are covered in delicate floral motifs and images of the enthralling Mount Etna, enclosed by ornamental friezes, and decorative acanthus leaves. All of these themes and decorative symbols are intrinsically tied to Sicily and the important aspects of the aesthetic of Domenico Dolce and Stefano Gabbana.
Each new item retails for $600, and will be sold at stores in mid-March.
