We’ve profiled business partners before on Mother (see Cary Vaughn and Jenna Wilson from Ace & Jig), but never business partners who are also sisters! This piece marks a first, as we get a behind-the-scenes look at the crazy/beautiful family life of Katherine Kleveland, a mama of two little boys (Wilder, 4, and Shepard, 2 1/2) and one of the designers behind the incredibly buzzy label Dôen, which she works on alongside her sister, Margaret Kleveland, as well as a small circle of women, many of them fellow mothers. Below, we get a peek inside Katherine’s Los Angeles home, her backyard studio (a.k.a. Dôen HQ), and hear about her slowed-down, Cali-cool approach to clothing and parenting.
