While some may think matte, dark toned appliances are exactly what every up to date kitchen needs, we're going to have to disagree, and then some. 

For those of you who don't remember the $34,000, haute couture "Refrigerator of Art" Dolce & Gabbana teamed up with beloved retro appliance brand Smeg to produce, well first, where have you been? And second, you're in luck. Well, this October, the duo is at it again, bringing fun, bright colors and tropically Mediterranean designs to pieces that are otherwise dressed in blah stainless steels.

While the prices haven't been released, let's just say you can bet they won't be cheap. But hey - the social clout of having a Dolce & Gabbana mixer? Priceless. Flip through for a look at the collection, and all the inspiration you'll need to start saving!
