ABOUT US

ABOUT US

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 and sustainable Italian Lycra in Sydney, Australia. If you want swimmers that are inspired by Italian design and made to the highest standards in Australia, you have found the right place.


We are small, and proud of it. We launch only one collection per year and endeavour to provide a great product whilst minimizing the impact on our planet.

'SUNSETS AND SILHOUTTES'

Introducing our latest swimwear collection 'Sunsets and Silhouettes'
Boasting a gorgeous line up of eco-friendly swimsuits and bikinis, the form-flattering range celebrates the diversity of the female shape. With a variety of styles and cuts, Contessa Volpi’s new range is designed to make women of all ages and body types feel comfortable, sexy and confident this summer; all made with luxuriously soft, sustainable Italian Lycra and the highest quality recycled Italian Ribbed fabric.


Lovingly handmade in Sydney, the collection was designed to exude the cheerfulness and euphoria of the 1950s. We’ve taken the feminine and playful aspects of 50s swimsuit fashion and combined it with a sleek, modern feel.
Available in a colour palette of burnt orange, earthy tones of yellow and mustard, green foliage, brown, grey and black with a mix of prints, polka dots and florals, Contessa Volpi’s summer line is like stepping back in time. Featuring twisted bandeaus and cheeky asymmetric cuts, the new season swimwear is a perfect blend of 50s glamour and current style trends.

LITTLE CONTESSA VOLPI

Mimicking the women's range, the Little Contessa Volpi line is  designed for enjoyment in the sun, and a perfect match to the women's one pieces and bikinis. Sustainable, recycled and ethically produced Australian made swimwear for girls aged 2-11 years to match with the adults in their lives.
Our vision is a celebration of womanhood across multiple generations.  Girls, mothers and grandmothers sharing special moments and embracing the outdoors Australian lifestyle.

SUSTANAIBILITY

Continuing to focus on sustainability, Contessa Volpi’s new range is, as always, made from the  highest quality, sustainable Lycra, called ECONYL®. This incredible Italian fabric is made from 100% regenerated materials, such as fishing nets and other pieces recovered from the ocean, helping to clean the oceans and reduce the production of single use plastic. Your swimwear might even help save a dolphin! Beyond the swimwear itself, all Contessa Volpi orders are shipped using sustainable packaging that can easily be composted at home.

Conscious about overproduction, Contessa Volpi only creates a very limited number of high quality, ethical and locally produced pieces each year. Every swimsuit is 100% Australian designed and lovingly handmade in Sydney, resulting in some of the highest quality, luxury, Australian made swimwear on the market.

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! Enrica xxx

MEET THE FOUNDER

Founder Enrica Volpi, started her career studying fashion at the New Academy of Fine Arts in Milan, Italy, after which she worked with celebrated fashion designers in Northern Italy. Enrica then spent a full year living and travelling across Australia, where she fell in love with the culture, lifestyle and amazing natural landscapes. This journey inspired Enrica to start a swimwear collection that combined her experience and passion, creating Contessa Volpi, a luxury swimwear brand 100% designed and made in Australia.

Enrica explains, “The belief that every woman is beautiful, at every size and every age, is the foundation of Contessa Volpi. Because of this I’ve always designed my swimwear to enhance natural curves, allowing all women to feel comfortable and sexy and to celebrate all women."
