Dolce & Gabbana and Smeg project – bespoke 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.
