For fashionistas and cuisiniers alike, the Dolce & Gabbana X SMEG collaboration is a high-fashion-luxury-appliance dream. And at collab number three, we’re more excited than ever. The Italian appliance manufacturer teamed up with the Italian fashion house to develop a new class of home appliances, with stunning new launches for 2019.
The opulent collection—part of the Sicily is My Love line—features refrigerators, ranges and hoods, a hand blender, stand mixer, and toaster. As always, each meticulously crafted piece tells the story of Italian history, culture, cuisine, and beauty, all through intricate illustrations of Sicily. The entire collection is broken up into two categories: one inspired by Sicilian puppet theater, featuring a use of fiery oranges and reds; the second by images of Mount Etna Valley of the Temples and Greek ruins, in moody shades of blue and white.
In 2016, Dolce & Gabbana exhibited SMEG fridges painted with homages to classic Sicilian design at Milan Design Week, and just last year unveiled a line of smaller kitchen tools and fridges. Now, in 2019, you can get your hands on the highly-anticipated stand mixer, toaster, and hand blender. “These pieces are true works of art that are revolutionizing how we look at home appliances and it’s wonderful being able to share a small part of Italian heritage,” says SMEG CEO Vittorio Bertazzoni.
Besides being an obvious tour de force in both the kitchen appliance and fashion industries, these pieces make the experience of cooking as aesthetically pleasing as it is a scrumptious…buon appetito! The newest pieces are available at Williams Sonoma, though some will be launching in spring 2019.
