before the bloom

LoveWarriorsLaBohemeTowels01

Oh, this longing for spring.. It is infused in all our nordic hearts.
Us warriors long for the light, the flowers, the birds,
– & for the ship filled with LW s/s15 treasures to reach these northern seas.
One of the things we long most for to arrive, is the new LW line of towels.
We are silly over the moon about them, waiting at the shore for them to arrive;
linen & cotton, LW designed lace, different stunning tones and just as
beautiful & useful in the bathroom as in the kitchen..

.. and for you who’s itching, shading your face with your hand,
squinting at the horizon, wondering,
– the LW s/s15 collection La Bohème is launching april / may.

Until then,
Bloom Where You Are Planted.
Always,

the Warriors

THE LA BOHÈME DIARIES

©HannahLemholtPhotographyLoveLetterPens

We are dropping by to leave this love letter for you.
So much of the action these days are taking place over on instagram,
but there’s not quite space for all we wanna tell you on there,
– & this is the place to come to know more..

The LW s/s15 collection La Bohème is being given its final touches
in packaging and details, – & is set to launch in the shop come late april.
The collection will bring some big time favorites of ours..

©LoveWarriorsLaBohemeDiaries02

.. finally the LW office, – & travel series will start building,
with among others; pieces we’ve been missing ourselves when travelling & working.
Like a beautiful way to dust that keyboard and computer screen,
– with a LW designed feather duster, pretty enough to grace the desk always
with its timeless and monochrome feathers & shells.
Like the bigger LW passport cover (wallet / travel case) that also holds
your boarding pass, credit cards etc, all in one place, – so you don’t have to
dig in that bag for alternately & constantly all of it,
when passing those airport check points.

Then there’s the LW passport cover for you who think that does it,
the i phone (6) case, the toiletry bag beautiful enough to double as a clutch,
the keyholder proclaiming some of our favorite, empowering words; you hold the key.
All of it in a stunning, soft suede and in jet black or a clear oyster grey.

To top it off, the collection will also bring you the
amazingly but simply beautiful paper weights in petrified wood
(a special type of fossils, over 20 million years old, – & the result of wood having
completely transitioned to stone by the process of permineralization),
handmade bead boxes etc..

.. and that’s some of the reasons we just can’t wait..!
For spring & for a LW pirate ship to come fully loaded.

So much love is tucked into this collection,
as always,

the Warriors

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..

©LoveWarriorsLaBoheme01
©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.

We hope you’ll fall in love with them.
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.”

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,

summer 14 is in the house

 

 

LWWarriorLoveLetterPenBlack

 

Last years treasure hunt is behind the warriors,
and as we’ve returned from the battlefield,
brought home the treasures bit by bit,
~ & collected them in the store for you lovely pirates,
it is now your time to go hunting..

We’ve packed this LW summer collection’14
full of love, ~ & hope you’ll enjoy it as much as we are.
It’s jam-packed with everything from smaller details,
like the feathery love letter pencils,
that comes in white, black & thundersky
{a stunning bluish grey we adore}..

 

LWWarriorLoveLetterPenWhite

.. to kick-ass bigger pieces like the LW petrified wood tables or pallets ..

{We literally stopped in our tracks seeing the stunning
works of art that is petrified wood, tucked away in a secret street,
that suddenly turned into heaven.
From a distance at first we thought it was wood,
but hurrying closer, – & then stroking the pieces, sighing with delight,
we realized it was stone. Or to be more exact, – this amazing
material petrified wood (which we think is a funny name too, as it 
sounds as if someone scared it into stone) is a million year (!)
natural fossil process of turning wood into stone.
Left are those breathtakingly beautiful, completely unique,
& über cool pieces of the magic of nature eternalized,
which we couldn’t wait to bring home
as LW tables or pallets and plates or cheese boards.
We often fall crazy in love on our treasure hunts, but some
loves truly are eternal & timeless. These pieces are exactly that.}

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.

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

HannahLemholtPhotographyWarriorWeekend01

 

We spent some loving warrior time this weekend,
sketching on some more pieces for the warrior wardrobe.
You know we love us some feathers, some shells and some fabric that
goes with denim and a free, light heart & bare {and preferably sandy} feet.
These photographs all says a little about what we’re up to..

 

HannahLemholtPhotographyWarriorWeekend02

 

The LW bones & skulls skull necklace, as you know, is in the shop now,
and the big feathers on my breath feather & shell necklace that we fell in love
with last autumn; we couldn’t help but bring home for you lovely pirates, and it,
along with the rest of the fully loaded ship, ~ will enter the harbor come april.

 

HannahLemholtPhotographyWarriorWeekend03

 

 We love, love, love our own bracelets, or shall we say arm pieces, 
that are vintage from Papua. They use them there as ’engagement rings’ 
and we’ve been using ours with just that kind of passion,
perhaps you’ve seen them; slided way up on the arms of a warrior or two.
We’re happy to say we’ll be bringing some of those beauties home as well,
for the LW s/s14 collection, ~ that’s the one reaching us in april.

.. that goes for the 1st of our pillow cases too,
~ & we can’t wait !
now this all says a little about what we’re up to,
and without being total teasers we can say there’s a whole lot
of other lovely things happening in 2014. .
.. & gosh it’s gonna be one lovely spring !

 

with love,

painter's daughters & pirate's dreams

 

 

LWSkullNecklace04

HannahLemholtPhotographyLWSkullNecklace05

 

Last time we released this voguish & gypset boho piece,
the bones & skulls skull necklace, ~ you cleaned us out in a matter of hours,
doing the phrase work like a captain, play like a pirate complete justice.

We’re so happy to tell you who got aboard too late,
that we now have had some more of these rock’n’roll beauties made,
~ & they are back in the shop.

It’s our favorite bone carver, a silent poet of craftsmanship,
who makes these stunners for LW.
Each skull is meticulously hand carved out of reclaimed deer horn
and are then forever joined by knots & loops of black cotton.

We love how it takes a simple white tee and denim look to that next level,
or how it can compliment a slick black blazer with some attitude.

We also can’t help but love how it turns heads whenever we wear it.

While we are here, we also wanna tell you
the painter’s daughter kimono will be restocked in early march..
.. another piece that disappeared fast, ~ it seems you are longing for
days of sheer fabric & bare feet just like we are.. lovely pirates!

 

wishing you an inspired & beautiful end to your week.

with love,
