The Coolest Kitchen Accessories and Appliances that the Fashion World Had a Hand In
When shopping for your kitchen, most people think of the standard brands that are tried tested and true and typically I would agree with you for appliances like a fridge, stove, dishwasher etc. but when it comes to kitchen gadgets and small appliances I think an injection of some of your favorite fashion labels can make a fun addition to your cooking experience. Take for example this Louis Vuitton waffle maker that was made by Andrew Lewicki. Unfortunately the piece will not be sold in stores as it is not officially produced by the fashion house but it’s a cool concept none-the-less.
Next up is a company that is known for reinventing itself and taking advantage of it’s own hotel, Versace. The Versace hotel has opened the fashion houses doors to new avenues including bedding, towels, and kitchen ware such as plates, cups, and other accessories like wine decanters, wine stops, vases, and ash trays. Here are some of the pieces the Versace line produces for sale right now on their website.
I have to admit I am not sure exactly what the Versace obelisk (below) is for but it sure looks neat. I suppose you could try to muddle someting with it but at the going price I wouldn’t recommend it. Speaking of price the chairs at the bottom are a whopping €4160 each! But what did you expect when dealing with Versace?
Let’s face it, you can’t cook or really function in the kitchen without wine so Louis Vuitton and Goyard have just the things to lug around all that life giving vino. Both companies started because of their affinity for luggage and trunk making so this should come as no surprise to you. The trunks are probably over $10,000 but are sure to make your friends jealous. Also the trunks are specially made to protect the contents. And when carting around a few bottles of the Dom. Romane Conti 1997, it is important not to break the $1500 dollar reds.
Another thing that you can cart around fro the kitchen to your roof top patio is a refined cup of tea. But how does one cart such a formal and large set of china around without some help? Another trunk of course! The crafty buggers over at Louis Vuitton are always in the business of helping and work effortlessly to make sure every piece of your tea set is accounted for.
When I think of enjoying a delicate cup of Gyokuro green tea, I quiet the mind, sip… sip… then am quickly back to blogging, tweeting, and Facebooking so without technology I can’t really be complete (yes I am kidding and yes I can be without technology for over 1 minute… it’s more like 1 and a half). So I turn to Prada for my designer technological wonders to keep me hands free with their hands free LG bluetooth device and to enjoy my connectivity anywhere in the world with their universal adaptor. How does this translate into the kitchen? Ever try squishing peanut butter cookies with a fork while chatting with your besty on the phone without using speaker phone? Nearly impossible.
Lastly I need to touch on the entire Hermes brand. So great and fits in perfectly with the kitchen topic as they also produce fine china as well as other home essentials ike blankets. Yes, the blankets were derived from back in the day when Hermes was primarily in the business of creating fine saddles but what is the huge difference between a horse blanket and a human blanket? That is more of an actual question because I honestly couldn’t tell you. But either way they look really fresh with their orange coloring and large “H” in white on the orange half.
