Dolce & Gabbana and Smeg continue their collaboration with a new collection of small appliances presented during Milan Design Week 2017. Last year, the two italian companies teamed-up to create 100 limited-edition refrigerators that celebrated the decorative richness of Sicilian traditions. This time, the same Sicilian motifs and ornaments found their places on wide range of kitchen appliances like a toaster, juicer, coffee machine, kettle, and blender. Golden yellow lemons, vibrant citrus fruits, and deep purple figs drawn from the coasts and landscapes of southern italy adorn each of the objects.
One can also spot images of Mount Etna on the Blender, which is further circled in with ornamental depictions and delicate floral patterns. All of the symbols thematically relate to the decorative aesthetics of Sicily — the root of Domenico Dolce and Stefano Gabbana’s vibrant vision for the Smeg collection.
The prices for the new collection are yet to be revealed, but they certainly won’t come cheap, if we keep in mind that the fridge had a price of $34,000.
