lovers & warriors mantra

 

 

 

LWLoverNecklace01

 

 

We’re suckers for the duality of things, 
the yin and the yang if you will,
~ & we wanted to 
make some LW pieces
that also represent the actual duality of the 
company name,
the Lover and the Warrior.

The lover lives by the sun & loves by the moon,
so she is adorned by a big crescent moon;
handmade out of bone,
an arrow for direction in where to place that love,
& she has brought a feather from her journey;
to remind her of that white dove of the love letters
it all started with, saying,
in the words of Paul Valéry :  


One should be light like a bird,

and not like a feather

With that she smiles and wears her name,
Lover,
in gold,
proud on her chest.

There’s also the yin & yang in the black & the white.
White stands for peace, cleansing, illumination, purity,
innocence and the highest understanding.
White is affiliated with the planets mercury & the moon.
Employ the color white for :
cleansing, establishing order, illumination & clarity.

White’s mantra is :

‘I am illumined’

Black on the other hand, stands for a forceful feature
and represents formality, dignity, force,
convention, stability,
~ & zero-tolerance.  
Black is affiliated with the planets Saturn & Pluto.
Employ the color black for :
promoting stability and protection,
healing misunderstandings.

Black’s mantra is :

‘I am endless’
 
 
 
 LWWarriorNecklace01
 
 
 
The warrior has brought her keepsakes from the battlefield :
a black horn tusk held forever by
silver,
a tiny bird skull trophy to remind her to always trust her instincts,
~ & a feather that 
helps her find her way home.
She’s 
proud to be a warrior,
proclaims it on a silver 
amulet.
 
 
Are you a lover or a warrior ?

Either way, always;

with love,

the Warriors

LWTalismanBraceletsNames

 

{The Story of the LW Memento Bracelets}

Some things are just timeless.
The LW bracelets with talismans
(an object which is attributed magical qualities),
is fully charged with the power of beauty
from a heartfelt collaboration
between LW & our artisans of bone and horn;
with the air of the island of the gods
and with the belief we live by; that we must
remember to live, – memento vivere
and remember to fly, – memento fugere,
as there’s no other way of saying it than that
in fact every day is a gift
and we should live as close to that truth
as we possibly can.

We wanted to create something that would
remind ourselves of this,
~ & on our arms now, are these
hand made beauties of bone, horn
and just a hint of gold,
as one should wear ones heart
and what is closest to it,
on ones sleeve.

Here’s wishing you a stunning end
to your 1st week of July..
Remember to Live & Remember to Fly,
you lovely creatures,

 

the Warriors

yin and yang

 

 LWFeatherFestoon03-1

 

 

White and airy, floating over the bed in Hannah’s studio
is the LW feather festoon, ~ & we can’t wait to see
what you lovelies get up to with yours.
{Let’s just whisper that there are some being used in
 a look book shoot where the theme is gypset summer wedding,
~ now that’s just a stunning scope of use we love and exactly
one of those we dreamed up when Sara designed
this piece of natural & unostentatious beauty.}

 

 

LWBirdsOfAFeatherNecklace02

LWVintageWoodUrnsAndFeatherDusters03

 

 

Black and intense is the ’fan’ of LW feather dusters,
which had to be shot climbing a fear-of-heights-maker-ladder
with their boldly beautiful size 1 meter length.
We think we always have, ~ & always will, love feathers.
Natural beauty, sighs of hope & understated elegance put to use,
you just gotta love that. And there it is again;
the yin and the yang, the black and the white,
the love and the war, if you will.

And us, looking forward to seeing you putting
yours to elegant use, ~ & also;
wishing you all a stunning new week..

with Love,

the Warriors

summer 14 is in the house

 

 

LWWarriorLoveLetterPenBlack

 

Last years treasure hunt is behind the warriors,
and as we’ve returned from the battlefield,
brought home the treasures bit by bit,
~ & collected them in the store for you lovely pirates,
it is now your time to go hunting..

We’ve packed this LW summer collection’14
full of love, ~ & hope you’ll enjoy it as much as we are.
It’s jam-packed with everything from smaller details,
like the feathery love letter pencils,
that comes in white, black & thundersky
{a stunning bluish grey we adore}..

 

LWWarriorLoveLetterPenWhite

LWWarriorLoveLetterPenThundersky

LWWarriorLoveLetterPenFlatlay

 

 

.. to kick-ass bigger pieces like the LW petrified wood tables or pallets ..

{We literally stopped in our tracks seeing the stunning
works of art that is petrified wood, tucked away in a secret street,
that suddenly turned into heaven.
From a distance at first we thought it was wood,
but hurrying closer, – & then stroking the pieces, sighing with delight,
we realized it was stone. Or to be more exact, – this amazing
material petrified wood (which we think is a funny name too, as it 
sounds as if someone scared it into stone) is a million year (!)
natural fossil process of turning wood into stone.
Left are those breathtakingly beautiful, completely unique,
- & über cool pieces of the magic of nature eternalized,
which we couldn’t wait to bring home
as LW tables or pallets and plates or cheese boards.
We often fall crazy in love on our treasure hunts, but some
loves truly are eternal & timeless. These pieces are exactly that.}

One of the Love Warriors projects for 2014,
~ & also planned to be an ongoing one,
is portraits of warriors around the world.
Test printed big and bold, ~ & already being lent out
to shoots & stylists, are the four first warriors;
Adi, Camilla, Lamy & Adéle.
And in whispering stunning shadows,
awaits already more of those to follow, shot on
the Love Warriors travels,
~ carrying so much light to come.

There’ll be big and bold prints; both of simpler,
& de luxe version and there’s big photo printed paper bags
and beautiful match stick boxes in the pipeline.
We’re already head over heels in love with our warriors,
~ & hope you’ll be too.

Keep a look out for honor & courage,
abundance & simplicity, strength & softness,
here, on instagram and in magazines coming up.. 
And remember ’Walk tall, kick ass, love music
and never forget you come from a long line
of truth seekers, lovers and warriors.’ *

Hello may tuesday, ~ & lovelies,

we’re pulling ourselves from the unpacking & the photo work,
to pop in and tell you there’s, among new treasures, some of your 
absolute LW favorites, some for the last time, – making a
requested return visit in the shop. 
We’ve got one last round of the LW lace longhorns,
the vintage palm tree trays, wooden trays & leather key chains,
along with the sought after shell bracelet & one row shell necklace..

 

 

VintageMarketTrays01.jpg   

 

 

.. and as we speak new treasures are also being unpacked,
~ & will be making their way into the shop at the end of may..
Some glimpses can be seen, for the curious, over on
the Love Warriors instagram.

 

Good times. Nothing but good times ahead.

And Love,

the Warriors

what’s up, warrior

 

 

©HannahLemholtPhotographyForLoveWarriorsTheWarriorWardrobe

 

 

It’s that time for us love warriors where, outwardly,
we’re quite silent. Behind the wings it’s as busy as ever.
Inter alia, final touches are being put to new pieces for
the LW warrior wardrobe, and that means we get to dive into
bone, horn, gold, feathers & the close collaboration
with our very favorite artisans.

Here’s another little sneak peek at the
LW arrow collection for s/s 14.
Forward, baby, forward.
Past all your fears.

 

with Love,

the Warriors
