Our Story

Luxury swimwear and resortwear; Established in 2012.



Discover peony, the swimwear and resortwear brand born from a life-long love affair with the ocean and named after the flower that signals the arrival of summer. All pieces are designed at peony House, the brand’s beloved design studio by the sea in Australia.

Created in-house exclusively, textile prints begin as hand sketches and custom fabrics are designed from the yarn, allowing every piece to be the purest expression of the brand’s distinct handwriting. Looking to the past for inspiration, and to the future for innovation in sustainability, peony is committed to consciously creating beautiful pieces that instil freedom, transcend seasons and stand the test of time. A sense of timelessness exists within each collection, allowing pieces to become treasured mementos of summers gone by and to come.

Unwavering from the highest sustainability standards, materials are carefully chosen with intention and care. All swimwear fabrics are made from recycled content. This includes all printed fabrics, custom textures and inner linings. This is the peony standard and has been since 2019. Every piece, inside and out. No exceptions.

With its eco-pioneering efforts and innate charm, peony has been featured in publications such as Forbes and Vogue. peony is available online and with select retail partners globally, including NET-A-PORTER, Harrods, Saks Fifth Avenue and Browns.

The unfurling of a peony flower signals the arrival of Summer and with it, the beginning of our most loved season. A season that tastes like freedom and is forever tinged with rose-tinted nostalgia. Because just like a particular song, nothing evokes the memories of a bygone holiday like a special swimsuit. Hand painted original works of art, each peony piece is designed to transport you. To bottle the essence of a moment and recall the pure joy of a Summer well lived.

Born from a life-long love affair with the ocean and a deep reverence for the beauty of nature, each peony collection celebrates the environments they were intended to be enjoyed in most. Designed to transcend the seasons and become treasured mementos for years to come. Brought to life through carefully considered materials and conscious creation. Kinder to the earth, uncompromising on luxury and uplifting for your soul.
