NEW YORK, NY May 6, 2015

Lady Gaga made a grand entrance at LAX on Tuesday, May 5 when she arrived wearing a Lenny Niemeyer dress from the designer’s Summer 2016 runway collection. Gaga was coming from New York, where she attended the Met Gala the day before. 
 
Brazilian designer Lenny Niemeyer first showed the laser cut crepe feather dress only a few weeks ago as part of her Summer 2016 collection at Sao Paulo Fashion Week.

 

The theme of the Summer 2016 collection is Carnival, but not the spectical seen in Rio with floats, revelers and luxurious adornments. Lenny Niemeyer’s Carnival is inspired by  a more nostalgic and romantic version of the holiday, the ballroom Carnival. The collection commemorates the traditional characters of Rio’s Carnival such as the sailor, jester, Carmen Miranda and ends on Ash Wednesday  when the costumes have disintegrated from all the dancing. The colors are washed and textures are inspired by confetti and streamers.  

 
About Lenny Niemeyer
 

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 bikinis 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.

Lenny has since transformed into a true fashion legend. In 1993, after 10 years of designing and manufacturing bikinis for other 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 editorial with famous models in the fashion world walking her shows. In addition to swimwear, the brand also produces handbags, shoes, accessories and a large collection of ready to wear. Lenny has 18 freestanding stores in Brazil.

Lenny is sold worldwide in South and North America, Europe, Australia, Asia, and the Middle East. The collection is sold at top retailers including; Harvey Nichols, Selfridges, Au Bon Marche, and Shopbop. In North America, Lenny can be found at Saks Fifth Avenue, Neiman Marcus and Holt Renfrew department stores, and many fine boutiques and resorts.

NEW YORK, NY April 28, 2015

Founded in 1815 by Robert Pringle, heritage knitwear brand Pringle of Scotland – best known today for its luxurious cashmere and innovative artist collaborations – began as a hosiery and undergarment manufacturer. By the early part of the 20th-century, the brand had begun applying the techniques used to make their undergarments to create some of the first knitted outerwear. Now the fashion brand, which is one of the world’s oldest, is celebrating its 200th year with an exhibition at the National Museum of Scotland.

“Fully Fashioned: The Pringle of Scotland Story” is curated by fashion historian and academic Alistair O’Neill and explores the rich history of the brand with garments sourced from royal wardrobes, the Hawick Museum, the Women Golfers’ Museum, and Pringle’s own archive. Among the brand’s contributions to the history of fashion are the argyle print and twinset, both iconic prep-school staples, which will be displayed respectively with a 1960s cashmere cardigan and an array of twinsets including a 2010 design by actress Tilda Swinton.

Swinton is not the first star of the screen and stage to collaborate with the brand. In fact, Pringle began capitalizing on celebrity personalities as early as the 1950s, photographing stars like Margaret Lockwood and Moira Shearer.

Royals also have a long-standing affinity for Pringle of Scotland. A sweater worn by Queen Elizabeth II will be exhibited alongside a letter from Her Majesty thanking Pringle of Scotland for the gift. A 1960s sweater owned by Princess Grace of Monaco will also be on view.

Georgina Ripley, Curator of Modern and Contemporary Fashion and Textiles at the National Museum of Scotland said of the show, “Pringle of Scotland has a long, rich and complex history, and has evolved to become one of the world’s top heritage fashion brands. It is fitting that this touring exhibition will debut in Pringle’s bicentenary year at the National Museum of Scotland – home to one of the largest and most comprehensive collections of fashion and textiles in Britain – and it promises to be a must-see for fans of fashion and design.”

 

“Fully Fashioned: The Pringle of Scotland Story” will be on view at the National Museum of Scotland from April 10 to August 16, 2015. From there it will travel to the US and Asia.
