Dolce and Gabbana have teamed up with Smeg to bring a splash of designer style to your kitchen. Take a look at these Colorful Kitchen Appliances by Smeg & Dolce Gabbana!
The two brands had previously collaborated to create a line of refrigerators which also featured colorful artwork. This collection of toasters, juicers, blenders, and stand mixers had been showcased last year, but they are only now available for pre-order.
Entitled “Sicily is my love” the collection is rich with bright primary colors and feature motifs like flowers, geometric designs, lemons and other fruit, even a cherub or two. These are all small tabletop items, and the list of products includes a coffee maker, a citrus juicer, a slow juicer, a stand mixer, a blender, a kettle, a two slice toaster, and a four slice toaster.
All these products are decorated with reflective interpretations of Sicilian folklore. Lemons, prickly pears, and bright red cherries are just a selection of Sicilian decorations that are framed in triangular motifs known as crocchi, that decorate these small appliances. Together with crocchi, the appliances are covered with delicate floral motifs and images of the enthralling Mount Etna, surrounded by ornamental friezes, and decorative acanthus leaves. All these themes and decorative symbols are intrinsically tied to Sicily and the important aspects of the aesthetic of Domenico Dolce and Stefano Gabbana.
So ultimately… can you buy kitchen appliances instead of art? We definitely think so!
