About us

Manière Noire was a collective project of Ritual Dust and Cimmerian based in Montréal, that started on the 31st of October 2016. Manière Noire was a pretext to create obscure items and accessories for a Noir Lifestyle. We made and designed enamel pins, art prints, original illustrations, apparel, and home decor.
The name Manière Noire comes from the french term for mezzotint, a printmaking process in which the artist produces an image by burnishing a textured copper plate, creating light areas from a solid black base. Manière also means a way of doing things, which resonated with our vision of a lifestyle brand.
The shop closed on December 31st 2021 after 5 years of Noir Lifestyle.
