Lenny Niemeyer arrived in Rio de Janeiro, 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 ended up finding a new talent. Lenny gave up trying to find swimwear that suited her style and took up a new career. Previously a renowned landscape architect, her love of nature influences her print design and aesthetic. She hired a seamstress and with small amounts of fabric she started to design precisely the swimsuits she had imagined.
In 1993, after 10 years of designing and manufacturing bikinis for other famous Brazilian labels, 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 walking her shows.
