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..

©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.

SKULLS, ROSES & KNITS

 

 

©HannahLemholtPhotographySkullsAndRoses03

 

 

Finding our bones & skulls skull necklace teamed up with raw, ripped denim and a lovely knit
in swedish brand fira’s autumn look book star crossed lovers was warrior Monday bliss.

It also reminded us to tell you lovely stargazers, pirates & gypset girls out there,
that this piece is limited edition and a minimum few is now left in the shop.
Just a little heads – or skulls – up !

 

 

©HannahLemholtPhotographySkullsAndRoses02

©HannahLemholtPhotographySkullsAndRoses01

 

 

 Our favorite bone carver, a silent poet of craftsmanship, makes these stunners for us.
Every skull is meticulously hand carved out of horn and are then forever joined by knots & loops of black cotton.
We love how it just takes a white tee – & denim look to the next level,
or how it gives a simple look that just misses that certain je-ne-sais-quoi, – some rock’n’roll.
We also can not help but love how it turn heads whenever we wear it out.

And there it is.
A heads up, skull style,
~ & a stunning new week coming your way !

with Love,

the Warriors

on mermaids

 

 ©HannahLemholtPhotographyMermaidLife06

 

 

There’s a lot of mermaid inspiration floating around at the moment
{pun indeed intended}.. and we love it. We love it beyond the ‘trend’ of it, if you will.
Don’t you also love it? For the feeling of freedom, of beauty, ~ & of a mythology that connects
many countries around the world.. and that is always a beautiful thing, we think; connection.

Since as far back as 1000 b.c, when the first known mermaid stories are said to have been told;
we’ve been fascinated, ~ & inspired by those legendary creatures.
Those first stories, from Assyria, told people about the goddess Atargatis, who transformed
herself into a mermaid, out of shame for accidentally killing her human lover.
Imagine the big eyes of the children then. Some things are just beautifully eternal.

We happily lent out some details from the series of accessories out of our upcoming LW s/s14 line,
~ to the shoot for swedish brand Fira’s spring & summer ’14 collection, mermaid life, shot back in september.
Featured are e.g. our own favorites; the vintage shell bracelets from Papua, that we told you about before,
~ that can be worn as a regular bracelet; dangling from the wrist,
or pulled up on the arm {staying there perfectly until you pull it down. Papua perfection.}
There’s also a sample we’ve made, a necklace out of bone, the birds of a feather ..
.. & the big necklace, or wall piece; white warrior..

Duo6 
Duo5

 

 

So if a mermaid is one who fights for love.. we wanna be one.
Even if its just in wearing little reminders out of bone, horn or shell. Small reminders
to go with our everyday attire of denim & simple, watery shirts or airy knits.
Come swim with us, lovelies ! And have yourself a beautiful & inspired new week..

with love,

the warriors

the love letters

 

 

©HannahLemholtPhotographyLaceAndGoldLinings01

 

we had several things to tell you darlings
in todays love letter, so one thing had to be left out.
{one can only take so much love in one single letter, right?} 

what we also wanted to tell you, is that as there’s still such
high demand for the hand carved love warriors ’lace longhorns’
buffalo skulls, ~ we are taking pre orders on them.
and a lovely thing is that if you want to treat yourself,
or someone you love to one for christmas;
they can now be pre-booked in the shop,
~ & you’ll receive a special gift wrapped card and
the delivery will be in february.

 

©HannahLemholtPhotographyLWLeatherLoveLaceAndLoveletters02

 

.. and about those love letters now..
we get a lot of e-mails & questions over on instagram
about wanting to be first in line for things, and that’s the
beauty of signing up for our love letters {see the tab right there
on your left?}.. when you do, you get an e-mail full of love,
always a little while before we give the signal on
instagram {or here} for goodness about to hit the shop,
or for something special that is up.

and we promise never to be one of those overeager lovers,
who bombard you with.. well, just too much,
where you have to throw things in the wastebasket every
other day. no wilting red roses or chocolate that has
time to expire. we just don’t roll like that..
so no smothering, just the lovely note that shows up
when you least expect it, ~ & which,
hopefully you love, right back.

 

LWCalendar01

 

 

like today.
today the love letter whispered, a little beforehand,
about the fact that we’ve launched
the limited edition LW photo art calendar’14
a year in the life of lovers & warriors
in the shop..

 

LWKimonoLaParisienne03

 

 

.. it also gave a little heads up about the fact that you can
now pre-order from the 1st LW kimono collection, 
memento vivere,
and that if you wish; you get a gift wrapped kimono card
sent to you upon purchase, if this is something you’d wanna put
under the christmas tree for someone special, ~ & the
delivery will then be made mid january to brighten
up those first days of a brand new year.

a year in the life of lovers & warriors.
isn’t it powerful somehow, that feeling, that we’re
all, together, – all of us who are alive right. very. now.
are about to enter another, brand new year together.
that’s the magic feeling we want to celebrate
this december. with you.

and a whole crazy lot of love,

the warriors

 

p.s there’s now also the option of giving that special
kind of love away as a gift, ~ the one where the
lucky recipient get to go ooh & aah for just as
long as they want and choose all for themselves
what they indeed love the most.
the LW giftcards. enjoy! d.s

the snake charmer

 

 

©HannahLemholtPhotographyLWSnakeCharmerKimono01

 

and here she is. the snake charmer. or rather her attire.
the snake charmer kimono.
she’s for the daring ones, for the ones that wanna be
a bit of both; wild & untamed but with a surprisingly soft touch.
as we told you about before, we decided not to produce any
real snake LW products, due to the cruel treatment we
couldn’t be guaranteed they would have to suffer, for us
to enjoy a stunning purse or clutch. we all stood in awe as the
spitting cobra raised, statuesquely transfixing us warriors
with its strong & unfaltering glance, ~ and spit its poison in
our direction. then we decided to simply be respectfully inspired
by its skin & yes, just so – surprisingly soft touch..

to see the painter’s daughter, or if you like more just the
dream of a snake we’ve presented them to you back in time,
~ & our honeypie has given you a glimpse of la parisienne
and any day now we’ll tell you a little more about the
daughter of smoke & bone ..
we’re already blown away by your welcoming
of this, our 1st little kimono collection, 
and we’re getting back to you on your pre-orders & questions
as fast as we can. oh, how you make us proud, sisters.

 

stay amazing!
much love,

the warriors

the painter’s daughter

 

 

©HannahLemholtPhotographyLWThePaintersDaughterKimono01 

 

 as we’ve told you a little bit about before, when we started whispering
about the dream of a snake & sacred monkeys, we’re launching 
our first kimonos this winter. as we’re spoiled to bits with receiving samples
to our door, we’re already lounging around in ours, enjoying the soft fall of viscose,
~ & the breathtaking feeling that the stories we shared turned patterns
turned something we’re now actually wrapping around us.

there were those aforesaid dream residues of snake cocktails & cobras,
and now here’s the painter’s daughter. our honeypie
has given you a little sneak peek glimpse of la parisienne  and soon you’ll
get to see a preview of the snake charmer and the daughter of smoke & bone.

 

 
©HannahLemholtPhotographyLWThePaintersDaughterKimono02

 

come mid december we’re hoping to be able to launch the kimonos
for you to buy in the shop, if all works according to plan.
let’s hope they have a safe & happy journey,
~ & that we get to share ’em with you to also lounge around
in, come cosy christmas days. and for the girls 
out there with some fashion guts; to wear to all those
winter parties, boho glam {that is, by the way why we decided
against putting straps for the sash / belt, so that it’s at
the same time both kind of clothing}..

wishing you an inspired new week !
and love,

the warriors

november loves

 

 

©HannahLemholtPhotographyNovemberLovesLWSkullNecklace

 

november is, so far, all about transitioning from our
lingering indian summer into a sweden that is putting on
a stunningly grey, – & cosily soft winter coat.

it’s about autumn parties & work on the eve of winter.
it’s still about black and white and we’re adding
some simply stunning details to amp up the base.
there’s a limited edition of our bones & skulls necklaces,
a skull necklace handmade out of deer horn & black cotton..
{yes. perhaps you have seen it before.}

 

©HannahLemholtPhotographyNovemberLovesLWSkullNecklace02

 

.. & there’s also another limited edition piece,
the beautiful white warrior necklace, that we
just had to share with you guys, beyond the ones we
lugged home for our own homes on our latest trip.

we’ve seen the more common shell necklaces
with the long kinda ’bib’ coming down the center,
but we so extra love the shape of these round ones;
that are at the same time a bit more neat & easily placed,
– but still at least as boldly beautiful, with their large,
white & glossy shells meet matte, natural brown cotton body
teamed with those sweet cream & pigeon-blue seed pods..

 

©HannahLemholtPhotographyNovemberLovesLWShellNecklace
©HannahLemholtPhotographyNovemberLovesLWShellNecklace02

 

there’s a leather & cowrie shells key ring, singing to us
about summer, far into the autumn nights. we just
wanna carry a bit of the ocean with us in our every day life.
it reminds us there’s always summer somewhere and
that sandy feet &  midnight swims are sure to come again.
that’s why we call it the endless summer keychain.
it’s handmade and oh, a complete steal too..

 

©HannahLemholtPhotographyNovemberLovesLWKeychain

 

 and there you have ’em. our november loves. 
in the shop. n o w. enjoy !

with love, – & more to come,

the warriors

werk

 

 

©HannahLemholtPhotographyWarriorMeetings01Mono

 

 when we work, we work. 
and that is mostly what we do do.
a lot of work goes into being a love warrior.

then there’s play. 
{all work and no play, well, ~ you know..}

and when we play, we play.
a lot more play than we could’ve ever imagined
goes into being a love warrior.

 

LWLoveLace03Box

 

did we tell you it all started as a dream
on the side of cocktails, – and a cocktail napkin
with a name scribbled on it ? 
just little over a year ago, spilling ideas and
perhaps some daiquiri, on that very piece of tissue,
on that very name,  – we would’ve never have thought
we’d be where we are today.

never thought it’d turn out to be a
love of our lives.

 

©HannahLemholtPhotographyLoveWhatYouDo

 

and what’s to say about that ?
a must is to say thank you. to you.
thank you for being a part of this journey
and bringing it, – & us even more love.

and what’s more ?
if you have a dream, don’t let it be
just a note, a name
scribbled on a piece of paper.
give it a shot. give it all you’ve got.
and love what you do.

dreams of snakes & sacred monkeys

 

©HannahLemholtSnakeCharmerKimonoBackFront

 

©HannahLemholtSnakeCharmerKimonoBack

 

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
their kimonos and kaftans. it has a scent of coffee and the
morning paper, warm bread, to it. and we can still remember how
the ochre colored cotton kimonos would add up on the stone
wall hooks of that secret, old atrium bathhouse hidden
away in the forest. we can still remember the first ones we
bought ourselves, how the carefully selected patterns would flow
through our fingers and how they were worn and loved
to bits and pieces, until we reluctantly would let them go,
in one of all the moving clean-outs & moving ons. 

 

©HannahLemholtSnakeCharmerKimonoSacredMonkeys3

 

as a garment it has stayed with us thru the years,
and some of the best snapshots of life flickering in our hearts,
those beautiful; at first seemingly small moments that stay on, ~ would
for some reason, almost always, contain this timeless & sensual
attire. perhaps its the falling to the floor without a sound. 
perhaps its the feeling beautifully lazy in something that
has been worn by people for centuries;
whispering of lovingly detailed tea ceremonies
and focused, battling martial arts. 

 

©HannahLemholtSnakeCharmerKimonoSacredMonkeys2

 

we love wearing ours for the secret nights, ~ and the
out in the open ones alike, for just us as for events. with nothing
but bare skin, ~ & all dressed up.
and we’re starting off our own little collection, launching this winter,
with showing you this; our dream of a snake kimono.
as we don’t want to work with snakeskin,
this is the dream residue of the spitting cobra & the snake cocktail
from our journey. woven in is all the memories & dreams, 
the kimono-moments, ~ & a handmade little skull from bone.

 
©HannahLemholtSnakeCharmerKimonoSacredMonkeys1

©HannahLemholtSnakeCharmerKimonoSnake

 

.. so it’s kind of a full-circle-thing, being able to wear our
own design kimonos with murmurs of memories on the inside.
we can’t wait until they ship this winter
and we can share them with you lovelies.

already in love,

the warriors

a sacred soft-start

.. with a soft-start jump we’re now realizing our plans,
~ & are adding some ’fashion’ to the love warriors concept.
the laser cut leather is extended into a small, first collection of
shell accessories with necklaces {sneak peek in these images},
a re-stock of the shell bracelet you’ve been asking about
and finally, a first series of kimonos, one of our
favorite garments, in a love warrior way.

we’re enjoying the amazing company to be found here in
sacred monkey forest, making the final adjustments
to the kimonos, ~ & are, in general having a magic time.
we’ll be back with more sneak peeks of what we’re creating here,
both fashion, ~ & monkey business, in the days to come..

jump jump !
with love of course,
