Contessa Volpi is the product of many years of inspiration and ambition: a swimwear label that is stylish, unique and of the highest quality. We specialise in one piece swimsuits and bikinis that are made from high-quality Italian Lycra by hand in Sydney, Australia. If you want swimmers that are inspired by Italian design but made to the highest standards in Australia, you have found the right place.
Enrica Volpi is the owner of Contessa Volpi. Enrica started her fashion career studying design at the New Academy of Fine Arts in Milan, Italy after which she worked with celebrated fashion designers in Northern Italy. She launched her first collection under the lingerie/swimwear label Adorisadora in Italy. The time with Adorisadora saw her develop her individual style and consolidate the passion for working with quality textiles, attractive colours and unique print combinations.
Enrica spent a full year living and travelling in Australia, where she fell in love with the culture, lifestyle and landscape!
As an online retailer of swimsuits and bikinis, Contessa Volpi takes full advantage of this experience and passion, only bringing you swimwear design and prints of the highest quality. The current line offers a cosmopolitan interpretation of modern Australian beachside fashion, combined with a hint of European sophistication and a not-so-subtle nod to the Nineteen Twenties. Contessa Volpi takes inspiration from the Twenties as it was a decade characterised by prosperity and celebration, during which women became increasingly liberated. In many western countries, women first received the vote in the 1920s. “ I like to think of my pieces as embodying the spirit of "beyond real" through their wholehearted celebration of women who love life and all it has to offer ”.
At Contessa Volpi, we want to bring a sense of empowerment to women through our swimwear, by channelling the optimism of the 1920s and bringing it to the water lovers and sun seekers of today. While inspired by the past, all our swimsuit and bikini prints and designs would be fashionable on any beach throughout the world. Let us bring a sense of sophistication and glamour to your life.
Thank you to all the people who inspire me, push me and believe in me. Let the adventure continue!
