As much as we might want to, most of us don’t get a many — or any — chances to wear designer labels. Dolce & Gabbana’s newest collaboration, however, will give fans a very practical way to sport its gorgeous designs in everyday life. D&G has teamed up with SMEG, the Italian home appliance company, to roll out a line of truly beautiful small kitchen appliances.
The collection is called “Sicily Is My Love,” and the designs are an ode to Southern Italy, which Domenico Dolce and Stefano Gabbana both call home. D&G’s announcement about the collaboration states that each of the new products will be decorated to reflect Sicilian folklore and will include important symbols such as lemons, prickly pears, and acanthus leaves.
This isn't the first time Dolce & Gabbana has worked with SMEG. According to D&G's website, last year the two companies created 100 hand painted refrigerators for Salone Del Mobile, a design fair in Milan. This line was also jaw-droppingly beautiful, but InStlye recently explained that each one-of-a-kind fridge cost more than $34,000. We do not yet know how much the new countertop appliances will go for, but we're guessing they'll be a bit more affordable if only for the fact that they're way smaller than a full-sized refrigerator. Hopefully they won't be too expensive because it's going to be hard not to snatch up every single one.
The full Sicily Is My Love collection will roll out in October. We know that's a while to wait for, but we think these artful additions will be well worth the wait. Take a look ahead to see a few items from the collection.
