San Lorenzo, known for its wide selection of bikinis, beach and resort wear, and accessories, has five of its suits featured in the current Sports Illustrated swimsuit issue.
The business started in 1991 as a small sewing shop in Peru, producing clothing and swimwear, eventually expanding its production facilities to Brazil and more recently to Hawaii. A family business, owners Lisseth Figueroa Moreano and her brother Jonathan live on Oahu, where they operate the stores, while parents Manuel Figueroa and Teodora Moreano live in Peru and manage the factory.
The company offers more than 15 original San Lorenzo styles of swimwear for women of all ages, including its signature classic Brazilian-cut bottoms. You’ll also find other popular designers, including Indah, Tiare Hawaii, Gillia, Vix, Gaya, Lani, Lush; and jewelry by Okai Jewels, Noelani Designs, Misha Hawaii, Marisol and Kamera Designs. On Oahu, San Lorenzo is located in Waikiki (2365 Kalakaua Ave.), Kailua (130 Kailua Road), Haleiwa (66-057 Kamehameha Hwy.), Pucks Alley (2600 S. King St.) and at Ala Moana Center.
