a warrior day off

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.

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

yesterday we got to hang with our fellow warrior
for the ’memento vivere’ shoot in her studio
{images coming up with our new kimono series : soon}.
beside the killer skull necklace, our favorite bone carver guy
made by hand as a prototype, miss honeypie, – reluctant to have 
her picture taken, ~ was wearing her samples of the
bracelets with antique shells from papua;
that we’ve just launched in the shop.

 

LWShellbraceletsAntique02

 

you who’s signed up for love letters has already
received a heads up about this, ~ & you who sees it now;
we only have a limited edition of those babies,
so go get’em quick if you love’em as much as we do.

we’ve also re-stocked the incredibly popular
white & wider shell bracelets; the love story that
just keeps on going. the love warriors laser cut leather
is also finally back in stock, with the 1st round having sold 
out quicker than we could’ve ever imagined.
we’re dizzy happy with the thought you lovely fashionistas,
~ & gypsy glam lovelies, are now walking with our design tucked
under your arms, – the streets of new york, amsterdam,
tokyo, sydney etc.. you make us proud, sisters !

there we go.. shell accessories & leather is up in the shop.
kimonos are on their way. look out for the memento vivere collection,
with handmade bone skulls at the back, ~ & a whole lot of love
sewn into the seams. memento vivere {latin meaning ’remember to live’,
engendered by the admonition memento mori, meaning ’remember
to die’.} .. yes, that’s a warrior way of living.

 what comes out of a shoot like this?
well, we can share a detail-shot, behind the scenes,
a self portrait by hannah, all ’skulled up’,
stronger than we think we ever saw her, so ready
to live that beautiful life. no reminder really required.

a sacred soft-start

 

©HannahLemholtPhotographyLWGoesFashion1

 

.. 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, 

the 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.

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..
