ANSEA is a lifestyle brand providing timeless essentials for women who love the water. Their inaugural collection of swimsuits, RTW, and wetsuits injects a sophisticated femininity into the historically male-dominated world of surf and swimwear. They believe life lived in and out of the water can be chic, feminine, and functional all at once. Taking cues from the ocean, which invites all, they create products for women of all backgrounds and bodies with an emphasis on versatility: their pieces can be worn from sand to city. Designed to be ageless, you can buy each piece today and wear them years from now. In line with a less is more strategy, reversibility is a prominent theme in their swim and ready to wear collections, allowing you to live a less-cluttered life.
Ansea is grounded in supporting not just women, but the well-being of the water we love and the communities that surround it. They collection is made with premium, sustainable textiles such as ECONYL®, a 100% regenerated nylon fibre made from fishnets and other nylon waste and Yulex®, a plant- based alternative to neoprene that’s gentler on the planet and is responsibly crafted in New York City and Los Angeles.
Co-founder Abigail Lorick knows how freeing the water can be: growing up on an island in Florida, she spent her days surfing competitively and sailing. With co-founder, the women-led private equity firm Solera, whose multi- year research identified whitespace in the market, they’re on a mission to introduce a modern female.
