Iconic Italian appliance brand, Smeg, joins forces with world renowned fashion powerhouse Dolce&Gabbana to unveil the second instalment in the companies’ ‘Made in Italy’ collection. Epitomising the passion and heart of Italy, the new range will feature a selection of Smeg’s small domestic appliances, each carefully designed to celebrate the rich Romance heritage of both brands. The unique collection, titled ‘Sicily is my Love’ will be showcased for the first time during Salone del Mobile in Milan.
Each item in the collection is expertly adorned with archetypal Sicilian motifs; radiant gold lemons, bold bright cherries, and resplendent splashes of colour, inspired by the coasts and landscapes of southern Italy and Mount Etna, encased by ornamental friezes and decorative floral and leaf patterns.
The effervescent design links back to Sicily, the home of Dolce&Gabbana, commemorating the province’s culinary delights and traditional dishes, with each collection boasting an entirely unique pattern.
The renewed collaboration not only strengthens the longstanding partnership between Dolce&Gabbana and Smeg but further cements the ever merging relationship between fashion, design and technology. It comes following the incredible global success of last years ‘Frigorifero d’Arte’ refrigerator collection, which transformed the brand’s revered FAB28 fridge into a monumental work of art for the home.
The first examples of the ‘Sicily is my Love’ collection will be previewed as a concept during Salone del Mobile 2017, at an exclusive event hosted by Dolce&Gabbana at Milan’s Metropol, the distinctive venue that hosts the brand’s runway shows each season.
