Dolce & Gabbana is well known for pushing the boundaries of luxury fashion and creating new products within its brand. This summer, the brand collaborated with Smeg to release a line of products referred to as “Sicily is My Love.” Peek into the connections between the two brands and take a closer look at some exciting creations.
Connections Between Dolce & Gabbana and Smeg
Dolce & Gabbana and Smeg are no strangers to each other, having teamed up for other projects in previous years. Smeg is a company that dates back to 1948 and has been making a wide variety of large and small appliances ever since. Smeg’s products are proudly made in Italy, and customers of the brand appreciate the style and quality of the products produced in that country.
The production facilities owned by Smeg make a conscious effort to be energy efficient, leading the way for other companies to do the same. Smeg blends the artistry of the past with the technology of the future to bring fans something innovative every time, which is something that D&G does in the realm of clothing, handbags and accessories.
Homage to Italy
This newest collection pays homage to Sicily, Italy, which has special meaning for the Dolce & Gabbana brand. Domenico Dolce and Stefano Gabbana founded the company in Legnano, Italy, and are now based in Milan. Therefore, the fashion house is distinctively Italian and carries that heritage forward with most of the goods that they produce. Dolce & Gabbana and Smeg are two high-end brands that look toward the seas and mountains of the Mediterranean for design inspiration.
Casa Smeg Products
The latest pieces by Smeg and Dolce & Gabbana are from their Blu Mediterraneo collection. This collection uses colorful hues that remind customers of the deep blues of the Mediterranean Sea off the coast of Italy, Greece, Spain and other countries.
Nothing dresses up a dull living space like some comfortable decorative cushions. This collaboration sells many varieties of cushions with intricate patterns in colors of blue, dark blue and white.
There are also many blankets to see in the Blu Mediterraneo compilation, including those made of cashmere and wool.
Notebooks and journals are personal, so Blu Mediterraneo products include several notebook textile covers that come in the same coastal style patterns as their home goods.
Retro Kitchen Items
Perhaps the most exciting parts of the new Casa Smeg line from Dolce & Gabbana are the retro kitchen items. Go back in time and collect elegant toasters, coffee grinders and more adorned with thoughtful artwork. Their intricate decorations, in particular, make customers feel as though they are using something from the past that functions as perfectly new.
The artwork on these eye-catching items uses majolica print, which is a print that Dolce & Gabbana has previously used in its clothing lines.
