Smeg Dolce & Gabbana Edition Fridge
Not content with having created a drinks chiller out of the front end of a Fiat 500, the Italian appliance manufacturer has now teamed up with fashion house Dolce & Gabbana to produce an exclusive range of 100 individually hand-painted fridges. Sticking to Dolce & Gabbana’s penchant for vivid colours and wild designs, a diverse group of Sicilian artists were commissioned to decorate some of the company’s FAB28 retro larder fridges in iconic Sicilian imagery. The results are striking.
Enamel- and oil-based paints were used during the process so rest assured your newly acquired work of art will remain untarnished by small household mishaps (though you might wish to instruct little Johnny that he can no longer bounce his bike off the furnishings). Prices are subject to application but you can bet they’ll be sky high. As for the fridge itself… It’s a 222-litre model with three adjustable glass shelves, a fruit and veg container and four ample shelves attached to the inside door. It also features a small freezer compartment for stocking your favourite gelato.
