Everyday Elegance

Fall 2019 Lookbook

This fall we wanted to focus on the imperfect. The simplicity. The Everyday Elegance. Our founder, Aishwarya, visited the kitchens of four incredible women to experience their simple, everyday moments. We cooked, laughed, and celebrated the creativity, purity, and imperfections that make the kitchen so intimate and special. Enjoy a peak into the happiness and chaos that we absolutely loved to celebrate. Here's to living in a golden state.

This fall, we are celebrating Everyday Elegance — as a reminder, to each and every one of us, to savor the little things. The moments in-between. The casual.  The wonderfulness of real-life living. The mundane. The perfectly imperfect. The quiet, soulful moments that make the kitchen so intimate and special. We visited the homes of four marvelous creatives in Los Angeles and captured glimpses of their simple, everyday moments.

ALIVE, for verve and vibrancy…and for fruit, greek yogurt and tomato toast at breakfast at Ali’s.  

Michelle splashes ALIVE for the perfect garlic and lemon dip to compliment steamed artichokes on a Saturday afternoon. 

Zarna enjoys a decadent olive oil cake made with AWAKE, berries, a crisp glass of rosé.

"It is important to me to be mindful as I cook, to feel gratitude for the fresh bounty and to remember those who planted the seeds and harvested the plants."
