sometimes,
it should be nothing but
a whisper..

a soft getting ready
to say goodbye summer

and a hand raised in the
still warm breeze
saying
see you soon
autumn

and with that.
new inspiration & beauty
just
around
the
corner..

 

 

with love,

the warriors

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.

to your 1st week of July..
Remember to Live & Remember to Fly,

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

jungle sunsets

Here we are, wishing we could bottle up the Bali
sunsets, to bring home for the shop, ~ & you. 
Come to think of it, we’d bottle up the feeling of having
dinner at the beach with ones feet buried in warm; silky sand,
the amazing fresh juices, the genuine kindness of the people,
the sense of freedom & some sunrises too.
{And that’s really narrowing it down.}

Instead we’re aiming at pouring that into the
hand dyed patterns of our kimonos & sundresses,
the intricate bone, ~ & horn work, with little dabs of gold
on the new LW accessories for this summer.
Because these are days we dream about,
when the sunlight paints us gold

on mermaids

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..

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
