Inspiration for the new Lenny Niemeyer collection comes from different cultures that use the body as an expression of art. Mixing colors, layered textures and prints with elements of nature and urban graffiti, the collection creates a vibrant collage of Summer 2013.
Lenny Niemeyer Swimwear: Designer Bio
Lenny Niemeyer arrived in Rio de Janeiro in 1980, after moving from her childhood home in Sao Paulo. As she began her search for sophisticated bikinis with the sensual allure of a Carioca, she gave up trying to find bikinis that suited her style and took up a new career. Lenny hired a seamstress and with small amounts of fabric, she started to design precisely the swimsuits she had imagined. Previously a renowned landscape architect, her love of nature influences her print design and aesthetic.
Lenny has since transformed into a true fashion legend. In 1995, after 10 years of designing and manufacturing bikinis for other famous, Brazilian brands, Lenny decided to create her own brand by opening her first store in Ipanema. Since her runway debut in 1997, the name Lenny has been synonymous with high fashion swimwear, receiving worldwide recognition with famous models in the fashion world walker her shows. Lenny has 20 freestanding stores in Brazil. In addition to swimwear, the brand also produces handbags, shoes, accessories and a large collection of ready to wear.
Lenny is sold worldwide in South and North American, Europe, Australia, Asia and the Middle East.
