Agent Provocateur Makes Halloween Easy

Halloween is right around the corner, and I’ll readily admit that my costume has yet to be decided. Agent Provocateur must be counting on the fact that girls all over will not only wait until the last minute to decide their alter ego for the night, but also on the idea that Halloween is an excuse to dress as slutty as possible. The undies brand launched their newest superhero-inspired collection just in time for the holiday celebration. Sexy Tarantula? Check. Racy Reptile? Also there. Keep reading »

Agent Provocateur Dresses Comic Book Characters To Sell Lingerie

The women in comic books have a tendency to be scantily clad, buxom babes (i.e., Barbarella). Lingerie brand Agent Provocateur is capitalizing on this rule of thumb by creating its own graphic novel with characters that wear the label’s skimpy bedroom clothes while saving the world from extinction. (According to the plot line, the ladies have lived without men for centuries, but now they’re out of semen and on the brink of extinction.)

Do you think it’s clever when brands do more than buy ads in magazines to get people to buy their wares? Or is this catalog in the form of a comic book a total waste of Agent Provocateur’s money? [Agent Provocateur via View On Fashion] Keep reading »

Quick Pic: Attack Of The Semi-Naked Models

To celebrate the launch of their “New World Order” line of lingerie, Agent Provocateur deposited a fleet of underwear models wearing leather, thigh-high boots in front of the department store Selfridges and managed to literally stop traffic. Wonder why? [9/16/09, London] Keep reading »

What Kind Of Makeup To Wear If You’re Going To Get Laid

Yesterday eve we went backstage at Agent Provocateur‘s show–our favorite purveyors of classy yet kinky underthings and beyond–to see how the hair and makeup team were going to be able to make a strong statement against all that studded leather and French lace dusted with Swarovski crystals. The answer? They stayed true to the sex appeal that’s inherent in the label. MAC makeup artist Chantel Miller looked to recreate the kind of sultriness, with an expensive edge, you’d find in a ’70s-era Playboy (which is certainly my personal favorite decade for the mag, but no one’s asking, so …). Anyhoo. “Before I spoke to anyone regarding the makeup for the show, the word ‘sex’ came to mind,” Miller told us. Naturally. Pasquale (it’s just “Pasquale,” thanks), one of our favorite hairstylists, was there dousing girls’ hair in Davines hairspray and he totally concurred. We love the makeup Miller used: Hefty doses of Golden Lemon and Golden Olive Pigment (the turquoise effect was from the light) and a blend of Cherry liner, Crimson Lipmix and Burgundy Lipmix on the models’ kissers. But while we had her attention, our minds turned to more carnal — and realistic matters — so we also begged her to tell us what kind of makeup to wear when we’re pretty sure we’re gonna get laid and don’t want to look too shameful on the walk home. Her professional opinion, after the jump! Keep reading »

Agent Provocateur Keeps It Above the Belt For Once

I’ve just been treated to a preview of Agent Provocateur‘s new ready-to-wear fashion line (lingerie dress and trench recently worn on It girl Daisy Lowe in London, above), debuting for fall. The full review: While the cashmere corset-print dress with detachable garter may be a bit tricky to pull off, the PVC pink trench vaguely reminds us of something Karl Lagerfeld would design for Chanel. And there’s a retro black tulip dress that’s practically office-appropriate, save for gold buttons that unfasten all the way downtown. Kate Moss may have been the face of the brand before — and Daisy certainly looks cute in this outfit, too — but we think these clothes deserve a real bombshell. Perhaps a certain curvier “Mad Menredhead? Keep reading »
