Fashion makes you feel good on the outside, while what you eat makes you feel good on the inside.
Just a little HISTORY…
Fashion officially entered the kitchen in 2016, when Dolce & Gabbana unveiled their decorative Smeg refrigerators. Hand-painted in their native Sicily and retailing at an astronomical $39,288.87, they brought high style into the heart of the home. A colourful collection of “Divina Cucina” kettles, toasters and juicers soon followed. Now, the Italian duo has added a traditional range cooker to the mix. The “Victoria” stoves come in a vivid citrus-hued geometric design or a blue and white majolica style, so that you can gaze at scenes from Greek mythology while you prepare your arancini.
But they’re not the only designer cooks in the kitchen. Fendi enlisted the architect Marco Costanzi, the mastermind behind their Milanese HQ, to create the exquisite “Fendi Cucine” (first unveiled at this year’s Salone del Mobile). It features vast kitchen islands, windowed wine fridges and towering storage spaces that echo the sumptuous look and feel of their stores. Cooking has never looked this chic.
