I have always been a big fan of Sara Winfield as an artist. I first laid eyes on her work at the 140 art project on William Street in the Perth CBD.
Since then Sara has moved her art expertise into designing for her own Australian swimwear label Field Theory, and the designs did not disappoint.
Sara, a former artist and illustrator and now a print artist and designer, is now exploring her work through digital printing.
Her prints are both fashion forward and eye-catching. The original designs capture the heart of the rural Western Australian environment and the earthy and natural tones are both flattering on the body and on the eye.
Sara’s bathers are both comfortable and supportive which is something I always look for in bathers. When you’re swimming with lots of little arms and legs kicking everywhere, it’s important that my bathers aren’t easily ‘moved’.
The label is launching in September this year so keep an eye out for her WA stockists.
