LA-based gothic clothing house La Femme en Noir has just unveiled a frightfully gorgeous collection inspired by the ALIEN film series. Headed by designers and co-founders Lynh Haaga and Micheline Pitt, La Femme en Noir’s hot new collection drops today, known to fans as ALIEN Day in reference to plant LV-426 from Ridley Scott’s original 1979 film.
Launching today at LaFemmeEnNoir.net, the avant-garde and fashion-forward “Alien Day” line is a collection of unisex eyewear, bomber jackets, and t-shirts. The collection also includes dresses and separates specifically geared towards female fandom while still being accessible to all genders and celebrating all identities and body types.
“Like many girls who grew up watching ALIEN, we idolized Ripley, she was this powerhouse female character who broke the mold of who and what woman could be in film,” says La Femme en Noir co-founder and designer Micheline Pitt. “I was always so enamored by the set design and creatures in ALIEN. There is something truly sophisticated about the world of this film. The attention to detail is something that has become iconic in all of Ridley Scott’s filmmaking. As a female fan I rarely had any merchandise to wear to celebrate my fandom of this film, so with this collection we wanted to honor that incredible detailed design of the Xenomorph itself, while creating a line that catered to a multitude of fans, not just female fans, but all gendered fans of this incredible franchise.”
Co-founder Lynh Haaga echoes these sentiments, “We wanted to bring a femme-centric collection to the ALIEN brand, especially considering that the franchise features such a cool and capable lead in Ripley. The character’s strength and fortitude throughout the series was an inspiration for us as young movie viewers and continues to be so as the designers of this collection. The ALIEN franchise was a new and exciting take on sci-fi, horror and cinema in general. We wanted to follow suit by offering the kinds of clothes and accessories that married the two genres together the same way the film did so perfectly. We are thrilled and excited to be a part of this innovative and classic series.”
