Founder, Janeane Marie created her collection of minimalist shapes and a subdued color palette to reference the sea at night.
Swim Noir veers from mainstream swimwear and focuses on women who appreciate clean, modern design steeped in classic and enduring shapes and patterns, featuring simplified luxury and fine performance fabrics milled in Italy. She is a woman who understands art and fashion on a deep level, and who values utmost quality and longevity in the pieces she chooses. She craves edge and unconventional details. This is at the core of MANTA.
After graduating with a BFA in Apparel Design from AI in Portland, Oregon, Janeane created her own eponymous line. Her career then took her to West Palm Beach and NYC. She and her musician husband eventually settled back in WPB to give MANTA its roots to grow.
