For Prawno Apparel - one of our favourite brands. Regards from Finland, from our island, our beautiful sea. Shot by Elina Manninen, well spent with Johanna - the ice queen, Kerttu - the traveller and outdoor model and Keiran - the lifeguard from Bondi Australia.
Prawno is an ocean lifestyle clothing brand inspired by the underwater photography of Creative Director Lia Barrett. Launched in 2013, the collection is known for its hand printed designs, all created from silhouettes of the people and marine life captured in her acclaimed photography.
With marine conservation at our core, Prawno clothing incorporates fabrics made from post-consumer plastic bottles and recycled fabrics, and supports projects aimed at improving the conditions of our oceans. Check out our Conservation page for more details on who we partner with and what projects we support.
Prawno’s design inspiration comes from Lia’s encounters with marine life and individuals from the far corners of West Papua New Guinea to the deep darkness of the Cayman Trench. She translates her photography into designs for clothing that convey a fascination with the landscapes and creatures of the diverse underwater world, as well as the human role in its conservation.
