OUR STORY

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.

'SALTWATER' COLLECTION 2021

Introducing our latest swimwear collection 'Saltwater'. Boasting a range of beautifully feminine styles designed to embrace all body shapes, the exclusive 2020 line-up features retro-inspired, bohemian prints and a new range of mix and match bikinis; all made with luxuriously soft, sustainable Italian Lycra and the highest quality Italian Ripple Jacquard.

With a subtle nod to the cultural revolution of the Sixties - an era of fashion innovation and newfound independence for women - Contessa Volpi’s swimwear collection features florals, stripes, paisley inspired floral, and animal print designs. Drawing inspiration from a powerful decade where traditions were broken and self-expression was encouraged, Contessa Volpi has this year introduced mix and match bikinis, allowing customers to create their own top and bottom combination to best suit their personal style and shape.

Born in Italy and having launched her fashion career in Milan, Founder and Designer, Enrica Volpi created Contessa Volpi, a luxury swimwear brand 100% designed and made in Australia.

The introduction of mix and match bikinis is in keeping with Contessa Volpi’s core values, which focuses on celebrating the beauty of all women. 

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."

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
