Dolce & Gabbana and Smeg project – bespoke hand painted fridges


Sometimes fashion meets design in unusual ways! This was one of this strangely balance and harmonious projects that was unveiled at Salone del Mobile 2016, between Dolce & Gabbana and Smeg. They collaborated on a bespoke collection of limited-edition hand painted fridges.

Since very early, Domenico Dolce and Stefano Gabbana payed tribute to their Italian heritage, specifically to Sicily, through their runway fashion weeks collection. This is a special homage! The refrigerators are embellished with traditional, provincial emblems, such as lemons, the trinacria flag, carts, medieval knights and battle scenes, and finished off with elaborate floral motifs.

There’s very much a sense of kinship befitting of the family-run Smeg imbued in these one-off pieces, which stake a claim to be artworks in their own right.
