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.
"I love building with my hands, so cooking is very similar to jewelry designing for me. Being hands on is very therapeutic and immersive because I become hyper-focused on what I’m doing, and nothing is more enjoyable to me than that."
"Living in a golden state to me is living in the moment and really engaging with the people and things physically around you. The kitchen is a refuge for me, it is a place for us to all get off of our phones and be together."
Michelle appreciates the beauty of a simple snack of steamed artichokes and AWAKE, surrounded by cozy pillows and throws in her living room.
Rebecca crafts a hearty, nourishing bowl for late afternoon, with dandelion greens, rainbow carrots, AWAKE and parmigiano reggiano.
ALIVE, for verve and vibrancy
“With you, I am home”
Cosimo enjoys pureed zucchini and ALIVE for 4 pm dinner.
Sumo eagerly waits for breakfast: fruit, greek yogurt, ALIVE.
Ali and Ray on Friday morning: coffee, tomato toast, chopped apples, ALIVE.
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.
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."
“Each moment is all we need, not more.” - Unknown
