Rebecca Vallance swimwear
Rebecca Vallance is releasing its debut swimwear collection this week.

Rebecca Vallance is bringing a slice of the Amalfi Coast to Australia this summer with the label’s debut swimwear line.

Launching today, the limited collection includes one pieces and bikinis inspired by the Italian seaside and infused with the spirit of that sun-soaked Mediterranean holiday we weren’t able to take this year.

A standout piece is this bright, graphic print Positano swimsuit which has a deep V-shaped neckline and accents at the shoulders and is priced at $249.

A limoncello yellow two piece features high waisted bottoms with a belt and a strapless top finished with a tie, meanwhile a classic black one piece has a ruched balconette top, feature straps and is cinched in at the waist with a tie.

All pieces in the collection are made from Italian lycra for that luxurious holiday feel, and they’ve been styled to match the brand’s resort collection, with summer dresses, kaftans and palazzo pants in matching prints. 

"We particularly wanted to explore the idea of euphoria, a sense of escapism during these circumstances and, like so many of us, reflecting on the times we ventured to Europe on our summer holidays," designer Rebecca Vallance says.

"This collection we wanted to bring joy and glamour, and the desire to go out feeling beautiful".

Other Italian-inspired swimwear for summer

Peony Swimwear’s new Capri collection offers luxury, Italian-inspired pieces with a focus on sustainable and low environmental-impact fabrics.

Like Rebecca Vallance, it has matching resortwear and swimwear pieces including a cream balconette-style bikini top with ruffles, and a matching long sleeved dress with ruffles at the cuffs and below the bust.

There’s also a classic lemon print, and a simple black and white gingham print that, combined with vintage silhouettes, brings an effortless elegance.

Jets is another Aussie brand that’s recently looked to Italy for inspiration for an environmentally-friendly collection.

The brand’s Casa Lucia line of swimwear and resort pieces uses a consciously chosen Italian fabric made from regenerated nylon yarn.

The abstract, red, white and black print comes in a few different styles and the entire collection is currently 40 percent off.

Meanwhile for men, Vacay Swimwear has a blue and aqua print pair of swim shorts inspired by the waters of Sardinia and a classic striped swim short named after the island of Capri.
