5W Public Relations serves as Agency of Record for SMEG, a renowned Italian domestic appliances brand that combines technology and style. SMEG's famed FAB28 refrigerator was transformed into a work of art when iconic luxury Italian fashion house Dolce & Gabbana worked with SMEG to design unique special edition refrigerators, complete with eye-popping Italian-heritage-themed patterns hand-painted by Sicilian artists. 5W was tasked with launching the collaboration between the two renowned Italian brands and spearheading U.S. media presence for its cocktail launch party in Milan, which took place during the Milan Furniture Fair.
