THE LA BOHÈME DIARIES

©HannahLemholtPhotographyLoveLetterPens

We are dropping by to leave this love letter for you.
So much of the action these days are taking place over on instagram,
but there’s not quite space for all we wanna tell you on there,
– & this is the place to come to know more..

The LW s/s15 collection La Bohème is being given its final touches
in packaging and details, – & is set to launch in the shop come late april.
The collection will bring some big time favorites of ours..

©LoveWarriorsLaBohemeDiaries02

.. finally the LW office, – & travel series will start building,
with among others; pieces we’ve been missing ourselves when travelling & working.
Like a beautiful way to dust that keyboard and computer screen,
– with a LW designed feather duster, pretty enough to grace the desk always
with its timeless and monochrome feathers & shells.
Like the bigger LW passport cover (wallet / travel case) that also holds
your boarding pass, credit cards etc, all in one place, – so you don’t have to
dig in that bag for alternately & constantly all of it,
when passing those airport check points.

Then there’s the LW passport cover for you who think that does it,
the i phone (6) case, the toiletry bag beautiful enough to double as a clutch,
the keyholder proclaiming some of our favorite, empowering words; you hold the key.
All of it in a stunning, soft suede and in jet black or a clear oyster grey.

To top it off, the collection will also bring you the
amazingly but simply beautiful paper weights in petrified wood
(a special type of fossils, over 20 million years old, – & the result of wood having
completely transitioned to stone by the process of permineralization),
handmade bead boxes etc..

.. and that’s some of the reasons we just can’t wait..!
For spring & for a LW pirate ship to come fully loaded.

So much love is tucked into this collection,
as always,

the Warriors

La bohème’s light travel

©LoveWarriorsLaBoheme02

As you have been curiously asking about the
Love Warriors s/s 15 collection – La Bohème –
wanting to know & see more,
we’re dropping by to share these quick snaps with you.
Let’s start opening the box..

©LoveWarriorsLaBoheme01
©LoveWarriorsLaBoheme03

The new bohemian – La Bohème – in our mind is a traveller.
You’ll recognise him, her, us, – & yourself in wanting to
mix up your wardrobe and your home, containing those trendy pieces
(cause again; let’s face it, we all do fall for quite a few of these)
with handpicked objects carrying more soul & stories;
whispering continually of other cultures.

As we travel and move, we see how much we keep both
reaching for those few key pieces in our bags,
borrowing from each other, wanting to pack less..
.. and that’s the apparel we want to create for LW, – & you.

These LW Year of the Bird long caftans embody exactly that.
Super flattering they seem to mould to not only all our
different warrior body types, but to the different moods
and occasions, be it when we’re doing business,
hit the beach, cosy around after a long day
or get dressy for the night.

We hope you’ll fall in love with them.
We’re already there.

with Love

We’ve been, – as soon as the jungle or speed boating between islands – would allow,
trying to keep you updated on our treasure hunt over on instagram.
That has not been an easy task and we want to take the oportunity to

Thank You

for your patience these weeks, as answering e-mails and
sending out packages to all you lovely people has been on delay.
However.. this treasure hunt, this trip..!
We are left longing like never before, for all of this to be brought home
to sweden; and for us to be able to open up,
– & share our treasure trove with you.

 It’s postcards from paradise, it’s a peek at our  LW s/s15 collection,
it’s a glimpse of La Bohème, – our take on the new bohemian;
the ones with messy hair & thirsty hearts, the ones that know what they love,
and equally adore being surprised, the ones that want to mix up their
wardrobes & their homes containing the trendy pieces
(cause let’s face it, we all do fall for quite a few of these)
with handpicked objects carrying soul
and whispering of other cultures, other lives.

After all, as our girl Anaïs Nin said so beautifully;

“We travel,
some of us forever,
to seek other states,

other lives, other souls.”

year of the bird | a sneak peek

©HannahLemholtForLoveWarriorsSkyCirclesOriginalColor copy

Back in autumn of 2014, – a small team was flown to Scotland for an LW shoot.
They then, for a few hectic hours, started working on what will be the continuation of
the white dove sky-circles, that did have peace written all over its wings,
was and is still flying all over the world as first a, now sold out limited edition,
signed and numbered fine art print, and still as a print on tyvek.

©HannahLemholtForLoveWarriorsSneakPeekYearOfTheBird

This year, our Year of the Bird, – more things will develop wings,
as life is all about falling & flying.
The winged portraits, currently being treated with so much love in post production;
will find their way into the LW photo art range come spring, and seeing
the behind the scenes snaps; we just can’t wait..

LW ADVENTURES

9603

With the LW skis a new range and story begins.
This way we want to take you along on some of our LW adventures.
Bet you didn’t see skis coming between our travels to jungles and sacred monkey forests,
– but winter & snow will always be in a nordic heart and for some of us warriors;
skiing is a great and treasured passion,
so of course we had to venture into this adventure
with you along for the ride..

LW ALL MOUNTAIN SKIS

During pre-season you will carve the icy slopes effortlessly.
When spring arrives, you will play around in the spring snow
and if you hit a big snowfall you will float amazingly in the powder.
The construction is based on Extrem’s Project 100 skiis and are crafted at Åre Skidfabrik in Sweden.

The secret behind the performance is the progressive elliptic tip
and tail rocker add floatation in the soft snow,
at the same time as it becomes easy to ski on the hard packed.

The Swedish birch wood core with double layers of titanal and rubber dampening,
makes the ski stable and the skier confident.
In short the LW All Mountain Skis makes you a better skier,
– no matter what conditions awaits you on the mountain.

We are proud to say that the LW All Mountain Skis are the
Gold winner in ’Åka Skidors all-mountain test’ with descriptions such as
“the best all- mountain ski that Åka Skidor has ever tested!”.
In other words, an all mountain ski for the entire mountain !

LW ALL MOUNTAIN SKIS W

The same model as Project 100, but built with a lighter and softer wood core.
In other words, an all mountain ski for the entire mountain custom built for female riders.
The construction is based on Extrem’s Project 100 W skis and are crafted at Åre Skidfabrik in Sweden.
Stable, playful and handles rough snow conditions without any problems.

We say;
ski your asses off during the day and become king or queen at the after ski !
And after all, summer bodies are made in the winter.

May your life be full of adventure.

LW Winter’14

©HannahLemholtPhotographyLookBookMoonchild07

With todays LW Winter’14 launch, many projects close to our hearts saw the light.
One of them is the new series LW Moon Child Botanicals.
With the bliss of traveling one of our favorite countries,
we’ve been wanting to do bath and fragrance,
since the very first time we set our tired feet down
in a spa on the island of the gods.
The balinese just do spa like no others.

Think products developed with a whole lot of love,
by the LW team in collab with artisans rich in knowledge;
having worked with herbal remedies for over two generations.
Think 100% natural ingredients. Think truly effective.
Think raw and natural materials sought out,
– & sourced since ancient times for their skin healing qualities.
Think white clay & vanilla bean, organic honey & bali coffee,
volcanic rock & pumice stone.
Think body scrubs, face masks and home fragrances.
Think pure luxury with a clean conscience.

Think LW Moon Child Botanicals. And find it here.

Another one is the longed for LW Moon Child Lace Kimonos, – & now caftans too.
For us, making kimonos & caftans has always been a full circle – kinda thing,
as we can still remember, with a murmur thru our hearts,the lazy weekend mornings of our childhoods,
where our mothers & fathers would lounge around in theirs.
With this LW Moon Child series we wanted to continue that legacy,
and if kimonos and caftans are a must in the Warrior wardrobe, so is lace,
-& we have therefore combined the two in these garments.
Wear them with nothing but bare skin, feeling beautiful around the house, and all dressed up as well,
with a belt for a more defined look, they are made for it.
The soft and stylishly lazy lace get up is here to remind you
we live by the sun and love by the moon.

You find them all in the Warrior Wardrobe.

Another loved project in the launch is LW Warriors of the World.
This series in the making, is one inspired by all the amazing creatures and characters
we meet on our journeys around the globe, – & a reminder that we all have a fighter inside of us;
that can be wisely brought out, who ever and where ever we are, when needed.

Our designer Sara N Bergman paints with hand, heart (& kind childrens paint)
and photographer Hannah Lemholt shoots and immortalizes.
Magic souls and loving warriors, brought to you by LW.
Now available as both fine art prints in different sizes
and the new, rough craft paper photo bags.

Yet another project close to our hearts,
– & launched in the winter collection, is the LW photo art calendar’15.

As the end of one year is drawing closer, the promise of a new one lies in the middle distance.
To us it feels like we’re all glancing at it, together, not really knowing,
however much we think we can plan life.
We can aspire though.

And that pretty much sums up what the LW photo art calendar for 2015 is about.
We wanted to repeat to you, some of our own watchwords, like
integrity, strength, personality, kindness, creativity, empathy, affinity honesty, hope,
– & a little bit of mischief on every new month of the new year.

Warrior and illustrator Sara N Bergman has hand painted with her magic hand
and in chalk & japanese ink she has adorned the photography of Hannah Lemholt,
with some of our common favorite quotes by inspiring people
(all to be found credited in the index of the calendar prints).

We’ve all put our soul, creativity and love into this project
and we are so happy about the outcome,
– & your love for it, already flowing over in e-mails and wishes to pre order.

It is here now. 2015. Let’s make it …

There’s also a brand new collab & collection, that we are very proud of,
– & one that has been kept a bit under wraps until now.
And that’s the LW Khadi Kimonos.
This unisex LW designed kimono is 100 % handmade of soft Khadi textiles.
This means that the cotton is hand picked, the spinning of the cotton is made by hand
and the yarn is woven by hand into organic fabric of superior quality.

Khadi is not even just a fabric, it’s a whole movement started by Mahatma Gandhi,
promoting Indian goods, to improve India’s economy and independence.
Gandhi worked for khadi-spinning to strengthen the rural Indian self-employment and self-reliance.
Thus khadi symbolizes political ideas and independence and still today most politicians in India only dress in Khadi,
it is used in a number of suits in the new Star Wars movies and in fashion alike.
We lovingly collaborate on these LW Khadi Kimonos with our friends Harmit & Bess in India,
carrying the proud handmade tradition of eco cotton and political values in between its threads.

.. along with treasures from the sea,
– & details that make for the kind of deco that, as you probably know by now,
we have a weak spot for; those that can be part of a 
natural home.
For us, the holidays, like Christmas, is no exception, and we wanted to bring
that LW touch to you as well, as an alternative to the traditional.
We also love it when things can be used in many ways and not only for a dizzyingly
fleeting time, and therefore decided to have our artisan friends make these
ideas come together, – in adding string attachment to the LW shell balls,
and golden rings to white feathers,
– that now can hang dreamlike from a christmas tree, a tree in the garden
for that special summer dinner, on a door handle, on a hanger holding that beloved
dress on the wall, – or just bundled together in a glass box,
beautifully awaiting your next idea..

Oh, there’s a horse and a pig as well.
toki toki – we’ll let you discover those on your own..
And discover all of it, your way,
hoping you’ll enjoy the LW winter collection.

With a whole lot of Love,

the Warriors

calendar making season | vol.2

 

 

©HannahLemholtPhotographyLoveWarriorsCalendar15Nov

 

 

Following the already amazing response on the new LW photo art calendar for 2015,
over on instagram & the massive amount of e-mails with wishes to pre order,
we’re here to tip you off to sign up for love letters here on our site
{that way you receive a heads up just before launches on things in high demand, like this.},
- and to show you some more glimpses of the calendar.

Above is the photo meraki,
which represents november and also says it all about this project;
combining the hand & pen of warrior and illustrator Sara N. Bergman
with another fellow warrior, – & photographer – Hannah Lemholt.
We’ve all put our soul, creativity and love into this project
and we are s o happy about the outcome, - & your love for it.

When we read things like ’Please Santa..
&
This years must have christmas gift
our skin tingle {!} and we feel truly happy; imagining this,
our work, being packed up in various rooms, in the glittering light of
various christmas trees and making people feel things.
There’s not many rewards like it in the world..

©HannahLemholtForLoveWarriorsCalendar15Sheets

 

 

This year the calendar is made up of 12 folded, big fine art sheets,
each front with a greeting for every month, and each spread then with
dates and its belonging photograph, – to either be placed on your
desk or wall as is; with the calendar to make notes on,
or to cut out the photographs and easily make it ‘just’ photo art,
no matter the month or day or even year ..

Stay tuned over on instagram, if you for some reason just don’t like love letters.
{Ours, we swear, – are however only sent out when there’s a special occasion
and we never, ever, stalk people with spam. Just sayin’.} These babies
are looking like they’re gonna get legs and r u s h out the LW showroom.
We can’t say we’re not over the moon about it,
- & we just can’t wait either; to see how you hang and use yours..

with Love,

the Warriors
