Renowned Los Angeles-based apparel company and high-end Gothic fashion house La Femme en Noir is thrilled to announce an exclusive fashion collaboration with Legendary Entertainment, bringing to life the hauntingly beautiful aesthetics of Guillermo del Toro's iconic 2015 feature film, Crimson Peak. The much-anticipated PRE-ORDERS for this unique collection are set to launch on December 22nd, 2023.
“Crimson Peak is a lush and atmospheric gothic ghost tale, which thoroughly fits our brand,” says Lynh Haaga, co-owner and designer of La Femme en Noir. “Every time I re-watched the film for inspiration, I was struck by the cohesive attention to detail, the thematic elements of costume, color, and set design, and the visceral impact of its visuals. From the living house itself to the stunning Victorian costumes, Crimson Peak is rife with all of the elements that we hold dear as designers - gothic romance with a hint of the macabre.”
“We are excited to be working with Legendary again after our collaboration with them for our sister brand Vixen,” says Micheline Pitt, co-owner and designer of La Femme en Noir.“With all of our collections and collaborations we look to films or franchises that we love personally. We want each film to invoke the same aesthetic as our brands, often filled with elaborate world building, costumes and a dark gothic beauty that speaks to us. Crimson Peak features such rich visuals and costumes so beautifully draped in horror that it felt like a perfect fit for our brand. We are excited to expand our offering of Victorian inspired pieces with this new collection, as we welcome you to Allerdale Hall.”
"We're thrilled about La Femme en Noir's collaboration with Legendary, capturing the haunting beauty of Guillermo del Toro's Crimson Peak. This collection mirrors the film's meticulous detail and gothic romance, showcasing our commitment to narrative-inspired fashion – a perfect blend of dark allure and elegance,” said Amber Sheppo, EVP, Global Brand Strategy, Legendary Entertainment.

Micheline Pitt is an established artist and designer who has cut her teeth in the fashion industry over the past 10+ years. For many of those, she was the creator and designer behind a well-known indie brand before branching off to begin her own company, Vixen by Micheline Pitt in 2016.
Taking inspiration from 1950s bad girls, vintage aesthetic, and 80’s flair, Micheline launched Vixen to showcase her creative talents, as well as her ability to create high quality fashion to showcase the female form no matter the size. Micheline is proud to offer "Good Things for Bad Girls" available in sizes xs-4x.
With the success of Vixen, Micheline has gone on to create partnerships with other high-end brands including, Hollywood beauty industry legend Julie Hewett, Ben Cooper, Love Pain and Stitches, and cult comic book creator Ryan Heshka, as well as frequently collaborating with brands for her own namesake collections. In 2017 she teamed up with long-time friend Lynh Haaga and launched La Femme en Noir, a solo brand that focuses on delicate and dark designs for the glamorously gothic.
Lynh Haaga has been in the fashion industry for over 30 years. Growing up in Vietnam with a master tailor as her father, she spent her formative years watching him make bespoke suits, measuring them meticulously and hand creating beautifully built menswear.
Graduating from The School of the Art Institute of Chicago as a multi-disciplined fine artist and designer, Haaga has kept that spirit of discovery and new techniques and applied it to her work in fashion. She began her career in New York City as a design assistant to high fashion designers Gemma Kahng and Charles Chang-Lima, and following that led a successful indie lingerie brand, Agente Underworld.
Moving to Los Angeles, Haaga continued as a senior designer and design director for such corporate powerhouses as BCBG Max Azria, Bebe, and Forever 21 before starting her own design consultant company and founding La Femme en Noir with her partner and dear friend, Micheline Pitt.
