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..

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’re already there.

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.”

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. 

 

 
 LWLoverNecklace02

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’

 

 
LWWarriorNecklace02
LWWarriorNecklaceBox
 
 
 
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,

what’s up, warrior

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

the year of lovers & warriors

 

 

©HannahLemholtPhotographyTheYearOfLovers&WarriorsExtraFineArtSheet1

 

let us tell you guys who hasn’t already got an eye on this,
~ & us, over on instagram, – what our beloved warriors miss bergman
and miss lemholt has been up to this october & november..

we’ve talked a little bit about it before.
the 1st ever love warriors calendar is about to come to light,
~ & let’s just say we’ve been as busy as ever, getting it all
together for the new year. the year we call

the year of lovers & warriors

’14 

 ©HannahLemholtPhotographyTheYearOfLovers&WarriorsSheetJanToApril

 

it’s all heart, ~ & handmade. miss bergman has hand painted everything
from the name of the months on bodies, to the dates under the finished photographs.
the photos, shot by miss lemholt, is a mix of washed out scandinavian colors,
~ & timeless black and whites, which she has then lovingly covered in
scanned 200 year + antique french glass silvered plate.

 

©HannahLemholtPhotographyTheYearOfLovers&WarriorsSheetMayToAugust

 printed large, in a3 format  {29,7 x 42 cm | 11,7 x 16,5 in} it’s both boldly beautiful and
has space for your handwriting to begin, in scribbled notes & circumscribed dates.
and the print? well, the paper is, of course, not just any ol’ one.
it’s a 270 g premium, fine art uncoated paper. 
the fine art sheets come intact for you to choose your own way of hanging,
pinning or perhaps magnet fastening, ~ & for the opportunity to
cut out the square format photos clear; should you wish to use them
more as your own kind of art some other way.

 

©HannahLemholtPhotographyTheYearOfLovers&WarriorsSheetSeptToDec 

 
and as if that wasn’t enough to make it the, dare we say it,
~ christmas gift of the year, we’re packing the beautiful, handmade box
it comes in, with three additional fine art prints, shot by miss lemholt to boot.
printed just as large as the rest & on the same beautiful paper, you get your
hands on some fine art goodness. one is the 1st photograph atop in this post,
~ & the other two are these, ‘alaïa’ and ‘rock on, love’.

box of goodness that we hope will bring you, or someone you love,
a lot of joy in the new year, ~ the one of lovers & warriors.

september is here with autumn scents
of wood and apple. we’re sketching on our existing work;
expanding the temple flower ceramics, the leather & more..
we’re also packing for a purchase journey, ~ where we’re
going treasure hunting again, and we’ll be bringing you
more new design of our own when we come back.

 

CeramicsShell&MotherOfPearlMoodDetail2

 

in sweden autumn’s saying a lengthy goodbye to summer,
and we’ll be flying back it feels like; back almost in time;
to more of summer, more naked feet in the sand and
bare skin in the breeze. from the 7th of september until the
23rd we’ll be out of the love-war headquarters and we
apologize in advance for the delay in e-mail,
~ & order responses during this time.
we’re a tight little tribe, travelling all together.
  we’re hoping to be able to take you along perhaps,
for some parts of the trip though..

 see you on the other side of the oceans.
with much love,
