Dôen Spring Picnic

Photographed by Curtis Buchanan

There is no season more generative nor more alive than spring. The season of abundance and of blossom, it is nothing if not a celebration of vitality and creativity, in which new life abounds and the world around us flourishes. So the dawning of this season of renewal and creation seemed the perfect occasion in which to honor a few of our muses while marking our second year as a company. It is their collective beauty, grace, and strength that serves as an eternal source of inspiration for all that we do at Dôen, feeding our creativity and breathing life into our work – allowing it to blossom. We all gathered for an afternoon picnic in KK's backyard under her old oak tree, mood set by magic maker Amy Blessing and the most delicious and visually stunning food and cocktails by Lori Stern. Beneath this canopy of oak, with the ethereal southern California light filtering down through the leaves above, we talked and laughed for hours. It was a day of beauty and bounty, but above all it was an ushering in of spring and a celebration of life!
