Fashion giant Dolce & Gabbana has teamed up with Italian home appliance company Smeg to launch a range of small kitchen appliances. According to the product statement on Smeg website, the Sicily is my Love collection includes toasters, citrus juicers, coffee machines, kettles, blenders, stand mixers and slow juicers. This colourful collaboration is an adjunct to the bespoke FAB by Smeg fridges hand-painted by Sicilian artists, revealed last year. Like the FABs, the small appliances are also adorned with Dolce & Gabbana’s signature decorative style.
They are all decorated with gold lemons, citrus fruits, prickly pears and bright red cherries are just some of the typical Sicilian decorations framed in triangular motifs called crocchi: there are also delicate floral motifs inspired by the coasts and landscapes of Southern Italy and images of fascinating Mt. Etna, surrounded by ornamental friezes, picturesque ruins of the Greek temple of Castor and Pollux in the Valley of Temples, trinacrie and cartocci, a decorative motif similar to stylised acanthus leaves.
