Longtime fashion designer Sara Kirsner Stith’s Doie Lounge is built around a line of glamorous-yet-comfortable robes that serve as the perfect gift for a bride to give to her maids.

Now in its seventh year, Doie has expanded its lines to include a “Destination Collection,” a series of robes inspired by Sayulita, Mexico, Palm Spring and Kyoto, respectively, that also serves as a Spring/Summer collection with light colors and whimsical prints​. The lightweight robes are each made from super-soft modal fabric with cotton trim. They are:

  • The “Pam Springs” robe: This Flamingo print robe was inspired by the pastel hues and whimsical feel of Palm Springs, California. The trim is made from Rifle Paper fabric.
  • The “Sayulita” robe: This fanciful bird robe was inspired by Mexican folk art and the tropical atmosphere of Sayulita, Mexico. The trim is also Rifle Paper fabric.
  • The “Kyoto” robe: This robe has a Shibori (Japanese dying style) trim and was inspired by the beautiful and quaint streets of Kyoto, Japan.

Doie is named after Kirsner Stith’s grandmother, “who even in her 90s was always impeccably dressed, glamorous, and had an enviable confidence – a true style icon,” Kirsner Stith says. Kirsner Stith grew up in Mill Valley, largely in the Scott Valley and Northridge neighborhoods, and attended Park School, Marin Country Day and Redwood High.

In 2016, Kirsner Stith got married in 2016 to Mill Valley-based OXB Studio Architects Partner Chad Stith, and they moved from San Francisco to Mill Valley. Kirsner Stith is already connecting with a variety of like-minded businesses, and while Doie sells its products direct to the consumer from its website, she has her collection on display at the Dolls and Dandy Nail Lounge in downtown Mill Valley.
