Smeg has once again teamed up with Dolce and Gabbana to produce a second collection, called ‘Sicily My Love’
Fresh from the heart of Italy comes another stunning collection from a powerful collaboration. After the success of the ‘Frigorifero d’Arte’, Smeg has once again teamed up with Dolce and Gabbana to produce a second collection, called ‘Sicily My Love’. This time around the project sees Sicilian arts using Smeg’s award winning small appliance range as their canvases, each exquisitely crafted in celebration of the rich Italian heritage of both brands. The new unique collection will be unveiled this week during Salone del Mobile in Milan.
Each item in the ‘Sicily is my Love’ collection has been expertly decorated with quintessential Sicilian motifs; gold lemons and citrus fruits, prickly pears and bold, bright cherries. These are framed in traditional triangular Sicilian decorations known as ‘crocchi’. Each model also boasts a selection of delicate floral designs inspired by the coasts and landscapes of southern Italy and Mount Etna, surrounded by ornamental friezes and decorative leaf motifs.
Each detail featured in the intricate design intrinsically links back to Sicily, the home of Dolce and Gabbana. More generally, each model is a celebration of the province’s culinary delights and traditional dishes. Each model in the collection boasts a unique pattern and is finished with the hallmark ‘Made in Italy’ emblem.
While strengthening the longstanding partnership between Dolce & Gabbana and Smeg, the new collection further cements the close relationship between fashion, design and technology. It comes following the incredible global success of last year’s ‘Frigorifero d’Arte’ refrigerator collection, which transformed the brand’s revered FAB28 fridge into a monumental work of art for the home. Alongside a ‘Made in Italy’ ethos, the partnership is based upon both brands’ deep respect for family tradition and the importance of maintaining local roots.
These stunning new appliances are expected to arrive by the end of 2017, in time for Christmas.
