Tie Me Up! – Lenny Niemeyer Swimwear
By ALISON CONNOLLY
Just last week we had Tina’s blog post make mention of the Almodóvar film “Tie Me Up! Tie Me Down!” and then there was Holly’s guest post featuring strappy bondage-inspired bras, and here we are with this week’s post that borrows references from both. The Brazilian swimwear brand, Lenny Niemeyer, is a luxury swimwear label that specializes in glamorous looks with distinctive style elements. This eponymous label creatively applies linear and geometric motifs to many of its styles; resulting in strappy swimsuit designs unlike anything we’ve ever seen. Additionally, many of the designs are architecturally inspired, as evidenced by the clean lines on its swimwear that are created with a clever usage of straps, ropes and knots. There are even a few styles that are distinctly Shibari-inspired, making those particular items provocative and bold. Whether bondage-inspired or not, the common thread between each collection is sophistication. You will not see anything too skimpy or too revealing, as far as what you might see from other swimwear designers.
The collections featured here are from the current S/S 2018 season and from 2017 as well. Last year’s Japanese-inspired looks were just too good not to share. You can currently shop for the Lenny Niemeyer brand in top retailers worldwide.
