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.
Introducing our latest swimwear collection 'Liberty'.
A gorgeous line-up of one pieces swimsuits and bikinis, Contessa Volpi’s newest range is a subtle nod to the Seventies while maintaining its classically modern designs. With a variety of styles and cuts, this new line is designed to make women of all ages and body types feel comfortable, sexy and confident this summer; all made with luxuriously sustainable Italian Lycra and the highest quality recycled Italian ribbed fabric.
The colour palette is a dreamy mix of purples, pinks, sands, blacks and whites, while luxe fabrics boast distinctive retro prints of florals, stripes and the bespoke ‘print wild flower’. Featuring ultra-flattering cuts that enhance a woman’s natural shape, the new collection effortlessly combines elements of high-end style with relaxed beachside comfort.
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.
We use a high quality, Italian Lycra using ECONYL®, which is a yarn that comes from 100% regenerated materials such as fishing nets and other plastic pieces recovered from the ocean. There’s just something so poetic about taking ocean waste and turning it into beautiful, luxury swimwear.
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."
