Sisters Ilona Hamer and Peta Heinsen set out to create a luxurious swimwear line that is comfortable, uncomplicated and focused on fit and shape. By stripping back ‘the swimsuit’ to its bare essentials, MATTEAU SWIM offers the go-to swimsuit that every woman can reach for in order to feel confident and supported.


Designed between Sydney and New York and made in Australia, the MATTEAU SWIM brand stands for classic style and simplicity above all else.



The development of the MATTEAU SWIM brand was a natural progression following on from Ilona’s extensive editorial and consulting experience with Vogue Australia, Harper’s Bazaar Australia and most recently a contributing fashion editor at RUSSH magazine and Fashion Director and Unconditional Magazine.



With Ilona’s professional skills combined with Peta’s marketing prowess, there is no stopping this dynamic sister-duo from making a serious splash in the fashion industry.
