These Smeg x Dolce & Gabbana cookers and extractor hoods are super OTT!

Treading the line between kitchen appliance and high fashion is the third collaborative series from Smeg and Dolce & Gabbana. Following the success of previous partnerships (see here and here), the two Italian powerhouses teamed up again to draw inspiration from their heritage, specifically from the vibrant and larger-than-life Sicilian artistic style.

Named “Sicily is my Love”, the collection introduces two new prints on three eye-catching appliances: the iconic retro-style FAB28 fridge, freestanding cooker and oven, and extractor hood.

The prints are categorised into two colour groups: fiery red and orange (to represent the Sicilian puppet theatre and hand- painted carts), and cool blue and white, which was inspired by a popular majolica (tin-glazed pottery) print.

These colourful floral motifs are inspired by the vegetation and landscapes of Southern Italy, and framed by geometric shapes called Crocchi. Definitely not for staunch minimalists!

The first Smeg x Dolce & Gabbana collection in 2017 saw the release of 100 Smeg FAB28 refrigerators, costing up to $48,000 each. The second release includes a line of small appliances such as coffee machines and blenders, all clad in colourful Sicilian patterns.
