Smeg and Dolce & Gabbana join forces to create a usable work of art.
September 16, 2016
The famously famous and outrageously flamboyant Dolce & Gabbana have brought their bold and colourful design sense to home appliances thanks to the wonderful family at Smeg and d and g.
As part of. This years Milan fair these two great Italian companies collaborated to bring to market 100 hand painted retro Smeg fridges, each fridge will have its on traditional (looking) Sicilian painting. Each fridge depicts a story of a era gone by and is a story board unto itself.
These fridges are collectors items and goes to show what can be created when two amazing brands collaborate to push the bouviers and expectations of a market place.
We had the pleasure of being invited to the launch of these amazing works of art at the incredible Metropol theatre, there was no runway and incredibly perfect humans walking up and down but a more static runway filled with amazing colour, boldness and creativity.
And the beginning of the run way we where treated to a single fridge being created with a back drop of traditional Sicilian music and dancing.
These amazing works of art are collectors items before they go to market and set at $10.000.00 euro per piece they will not be for everybody but what is for sure is they are truly stunning and we would not mind one of these amazing works of art.
Thanks to Smeg family for their hospitality, we had a great time
