inspired by Bram Stoker’s “Dracula.”
“Bram Stoker‘s ‘Dracula’ is truly a dream collaboration for me, I still remember seeing the film at a local movie theater for my birthday when I was a kid,” says Micheline Pitt, co-owner, designer, La Femme En Noir. “It had such a huge impact on me. The costumes, the elaborate set pieces, the incredibly beautiful yet horrifying practical effects – I was nothing short of mesmerized. Being Romanian I have had a long obsession with vampires, especially the story of Dracula, so getting to design a collection that is so entwined in my heritage is a unique and rare opportunity. I love that both myself and my business partner, Lynh Haaga, can celebrate elements of our cultures that were so beautifully woven into the costumes of this film. We hope that others who grew up loving this dark romance as much as we did will enjoy all the pieces we have thoughtfully put together for this collection. It is really unique with a very specific style that is unlike anything done before.”
“Micheline and I were asked a few years ago by Rue Morgue Magazine, ‘What would be our dream studio collaboration?’ We didn’t hesitate to say in unison, 1992’s Bram Stoker’s ‘Dracula,’” says Lynh Haaga, co-owner, designer, La Femme en Noir. “The film’s amplification of character through costume is brilliant. We felt this movie was a perfect project for us, considering Micheline’s Romanian heritage and my East Asian culture. We are excited to showcase our interpretation and hope we’ve created a unique collection with deference to the source material.”
A fall/winter 2023-2024 apparel and accessories collection is forthcoming.
