Influences from 1960s Italy and the Mediterranean lifestyle have made Ripa Ripa a favourite among beach-going connoisseurs. The Milanese brand’s swimwear and beachwear collections embody the best of the Italian summer, with well-appointed materials, beautiful designs and expert craftsmanship.
The hardest part of producing swimwear lies in the choice of materials. Synthetics often have a plasticky feel, while cotton is too absorbent and heavy. With its Italian partners, Ripa Ripa has managed to solve this conundrum by creating a brushed, ring-spun fabric offering cotton-like levels of comfort while remaining light and quick-drying.
