We've already talked at length at RUSSH about fashion's obsession with food as of late, so its little surprise that we've continued to see brands cross party lines to further bridge the gap between the two.
Australian fashion label Alemais teaming up with KitchenAid wasn't exactly on our bingo cards for this year, but is the latest delectable collaboration to be cooked up; the brands unveiling a whimsical stand mixer design with a vision to celebrate culinary creativity and interior elegance in the heart of the home.
Capturing the very essence of coastal Australian living, the design imagines long and languid summer days spent by a sun-kissed coast, punctuated by dips in an azure sea and nights crowded around a kitchen bench with cherished company.
Pastel hues and summer motifs – infused elements of land, sea, and sun – adorn the bespoke mixer bowl in true Alemais style, creating a vivid tapestry of coastal living amongst Australia’s rich natural landscape.
It's perfectly paired with a the 4.8L KitchenAid Artisan Stand Mixer KSM182 in Mineral Water, a serene light blue hue inspired by rejuvenating cold spring water in a crisp and cool satin finish.
"We believe the kitchen is the heartbeat of the home, where we come together, where life unfolds," said Lesleigh Jermanus, the Co-Founder and Creative Director behind Alemais. "Crafting this piece for your kitchen, we sought to capture the very essence of what we hold dear in life – boundless joy, mouthwatering cuisine, and the vibrant tapestry of nature."
In a seemingly serendipitous union of disparate realms, KitchenAid and Alemais have converged to celebrate their shared reverence for time-honoured craftsmanship and the spirit of creation. It's a collaboration that isn't just an objet d'art meant to be tucked away in the depths of your kitchen pantry; it's designed to be a vibrant conversation starter, taking pride of place on your kitchen bench.
