    Sonja de Lennart

    Sonja de Lennart, European fashion designer, born in 1920. She is know for inventing the famous Capri Pants in 1948. The three-quarter pants that end below the knee got its name from her love for the Italian isle of Capri. After World War II in 1945, de Lennart began to design clothes and opened her first namesake boutique “Salon Sonja” in Munich, Germany. Three years later, the European designer designed a tight three-quarter length Capri pants that was created for the winter and summer collection. That classic Capri pants became immediately popular among women after years of wearing the rather masculine, not fitted pants. Her fashion collection became known as the Capri Collection.
