Dolce&Gabbana and Smeg have joined creative forces to create ‘Sicily is my Love’, a truly Made in Italy project where experts from the worlds of high fashion and design meet and merge to create unique domestic appliances that uncover an Italian story.
The collaboration focuses on small kitchen appliances such as toasters, citrus juicers, coffee machines, kettles, blenders, stand mixers and slow juicers.
All these products are decorated with reflective interpretations of Sicilian folklore. Lemons, prickly pears, and bright red cherries are just a selection of Sicilian decorations that are framed in triangular motifs known as ‘crocchi’, that decorate these appliances.
Together with crocchi, the appliances are covered in delicate floral motifs and images of the enthralling Mount Etna, surrounded by ornamental friezes, and decorative acanthus leaves. All these themes and decorative symbols are intrinsically tied to Sicily and the important aspects of the aesthetic of Domenico Dolce and Stefano Gabbana.
