Our Story

It’s the sixties when Giuseppe Milazzi reinvents his experience as a tailor and together with his wife Adriana decides to found a laboratory for the production of swimwear.
In the middle of the booming economy, Maristella Mare stands out among the factories of the district of Oleggio producing collections for the most famous brands. In the eighties the second generation of the family, with daughters Maria Luisa, Antonella and Stefania, enters the company marking a turning point for Maristella Mare, by creating their own fashion line which is an innovative collection targeting different types of women and reflecting the quality and style of the best Made in Italy for the Italian and international market.
So in 2003 they start brand Olivia, a beachwear collection with a fresh and contemporary taste that combines refined prints with a great attention to fitting: different sizes and shapes can be coordinated in the whole range, which includes also some limited edition hand-painted outfits.
After two years Maristella Mare proposes a further interpretation of the Italian style with Olivia Gold: bras up to E cup and briefs with different models, target the young or the more adult customer looking for a fashionable and modern style.
Today brands Olivia and Olivia Gold reached great sell-out results in the best Italian high-end shops and is ready for entering the most prestigious international markets.
