Even warriors need a break sometimes,
– & we’re taking ours starting today, with the Swedish christmas
only a day away. On the 5th of January we’ll be business as
usual and back in the LW showroom and your orders, e-mails etc.

Set yourself free, enjoy all the seemingly smallest of moments and
love, love, love all the more on these, the days of christmas,

the Warriors

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

{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.

a warrior day off

 

 

 

©HannahLemholtPhotographyDreambeach01FiniV

 

 

Harvey MacKay said

Find something you love to do
and you’ll never have to work a day in your life.

For us that is, at least for the most part of the journey, – very true.
For however long our days are, and however much there is
nothing like Sunday or Monday in the life of a Warrior,
or at least they don’t hold any truth as to being a day off or
the classic first day of the workweek, – we often don’t feel like
we’re working. We feel like we’re living

For our days float into nights where we open up,
be it over drinks or just great food, in a respite that only
brings us closer and where the most of our projects
and ideas come to life under the stars.

That said, a Warrior has to know when
it’s time for rest &, in some cases, – recuperation.
And a true Warrior knows, this too is an art.
It doesn’t matter what name the day has,
or where in the world we currently call home.
It’s all about being all there. 
And granted, some places on earth are
more easy than others to just be.
Let us take you a long for one of our favorite
places like that. Dream beach.
{Yes. That’s the actual name of it.}

Wherever we kick our sandals off, – that’s our home. | LW bracelet w. antique shells : here | + details from LW summer’14

 

 

 And this is why it doesn’t feel like we’re working.
Why instead it feels like we’re living. Because we can’t help but,
in the midst of just being, – meditatively picking shells & stunning shapes
on the beach, until time is erased entirely, – to also be inspired by just that.
And that’s what is then put into our work. The sensation of that day is
threaded on that bracelet, in between the shells & the cotton.
And that’s why it is an art form to have a day off as a Warrior,
the line between work & revitalization is a vague one;
it’s been washed over by the most beautiful of waves,
& left is only a immersion in the sand, at dream beach.

©HannahLemholtPhotographyPaintersDaughtersSunChilling02

 

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

daughter of smoke & bone

 

 

©HannahLemholtPhotographyLWKimonoDaughterOfSmokeAndBone01

 

 

by now you’re already pre-ordering like crazy from the 1st LW kimono collection,
memento vivere, and we’re so happy you like our creations !
last, but not least to be featured, is the daughter of smoke & bone.
she’s a subtly strong one. the evening is darkening in the alley-ways of marrakech
and the soft fabric is flowing behind her as she walks thru them,
soaking up the scent; meandering in smoke whirls from the silver tea-pots,
taking impressions from the stacks of fabrics she grazes as she passes.
what stays on in the pattern is the moroccan tiles and the
memory of the cheetah she secretly let out of its cage.

 

©HannahLemholtPhotographyLWKimonoDaughterOfSmokeAndBone02

©HannahLemholtPhotographyLWKimonoDaughterOfSmokeAndBone03©HannahLemholtPhotographyBringingLove

 

.. and of course she, like all the others, is carrying a handmade talisman;
a skull carved out of horn, in the back of her neck. to always keep an
eye out for her where she can’t see, ~ & to remind her of memento vivere.
remember to live
. it’s honeypie‘s favorite at the moment. she tells
us she even falls asleep with it on, dreaming then the residues of those
moroccan alley-ways, the al hamra, the scent of musk & myrrh,
sweet tea & herbs, ~ & the trail of soft smoke.

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.. 

 ©HannahLemholtPhotographyLWSnakeCharmerKimono02

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

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
