Petra Börner created a series of Bathers, now featuring in a collaboration with the Australian women's range, Her Line and was Art Directed by Lilya Turki. Created for the modern woman, the label was founded by Tuyen Nguyen and Michael Lim in 2014, has since expanded its signature swim range to include ready-to-wear.
Drawn to her unique style, they commissioned Petra Börner to design a series of illustrations to be gifted as A2-sized artwork prints for purchases made exclusively through our website. The result – nostalgically captured moments of summers spent in the Swedish archipelago, and on warmer European coastlines, through her signature lines using pencil, ink and acrylic on paper.
Her Line spoke with Petra to learn about her work, her inspiration behind the collaboration, and what it means to be a woman. 'Making art is what helps me to process my thoughts, fears, excitement and it’s a natural part of my daily life. Ever since I can remember I have enjoyed drawing, painting and making things.'
