During the Milan Design Fair, Smeg and Dolce&Gabbana unveiled their latest collaboration – Sicily is my Love. This colourful collaboration follows the FAB Smeg fridges hand-painted by Sicilian artists, revealed last year at EuroCucina. Like the FABs, the small appliances are adorned with Dolce&Gabbana’s signature decorative style.
Toasters, citrus juicers, coffee machines, kettles, blenders, stand mixers and slow juicers all decorated with gold lemons, citrus fruits, prickly pears and bright red cherries are just some of the typical Sicilian decorations framed in triangular motifs called crocchi: there are also delicate floral motifs inspired by the coasts and landscapes of Southern Italy and images of fascinating Mt. Etna, surrounded by ornamental friezes, picturesque ruins of the Greek temple of Castor and Pollux in the Valley of Temples, trinacrie and cartocci, a decorative motif similar to stylised acanthus leaves.
All symbols of an aesthetic inextricably associated with Sicily, home to the souls of Domenico Dolce and Stefano Gabbana, and more generally with Italy and its cuisine of which Smeg has always been an interpreter of excellence.
We are very excited about this new collection, which once again successfully blends fashion and efficiency, bringing works of art into the kitchen.
The appliances were produced in limited numbers for the Salone exhibit, and are not yet available for sale. Stay tuned for more details!
