The Autumn / Winter 2012 collection of Agent Provocateur plays with the juxtaposition between toughness and softness. A return to a rich, dark colour palette is inspired by the striking of Elizabeth Taylor in ‘Secret Ceremony’ (1968) and Winona Ryder in ‘Dracula’ (1992). Far from morbid and gothic, the collection also presents an intense femininity represented in layers of lace, ruffles, and figure-defining styles.
Agent Provocateur is always conscious of enhancing the feminine form, and this season introduces ‘Leah’, ‘Jena’ and ‘Joseline’ for the smoothest silhouettes. In layered bandaged silk chiffon, ‘Leah’ is a statement corset and dress with lacing along the spine, available in classic black or nude. Black satin ‘Jena’ features a visible gold hook and eye fastenings. Its deceiving simplicity makes this style an instant winner.
‘Joseline’ is a full lingerie set in an innovative micro-fibre for maximum all-day comfort. The slinky slip is perfect under a dress or peeping through beneath a blouse.
The lace is vampy and layered for an opulent effect. ‘Darla’ tiers black lace baby pink tulle with a corsetry-inspired lacing. Little red roses adorn each piece.
The season’s ultimate pin-up look is epitomised in ‘Veronika’, a mauve and lilac set with oversized scalloped lace suspender and brief.
Cheeky ‘Caitlin’ boasts a cutout plunge bra for enhanced cleavage and a stretch rouleaux waspie that celebrates and defines a nipped-in waist. ‘Novah’, in scarlet, offers a full cup bra, French knickers and striking kimono with a 1930s inspiration.
Agent Provocateur’s popular prints continue into Autumn, in Victoriana-inspired ‘Syble’ and chiffon leopard print ‘Esme Leopard’. The frivolous ruffles in Syble’s babydoll and gown styles are girly and fun but ever-seductive in sheerest black chiffon. The soft cup ‘Esme Leopard’ bra is highly supportive and teams with a chic garter-style suspender and ruched brief.
The floor-length, lace ‘Fionna’ kaftan features a split side for the utmost glamour. A deep plunge neckline and cascading sleeves add to the drama. ‘Morrigan’ is a stretch chiffon dress with a high neck, bib ruffles and hem frill. A tiered lace bustle boosts the derriere to spectacular effect.
Winter 2012 focuses on elegance and femininity, all with a theatrical flourish. ‘Selena’ pairs dusky rose satin with black lace panelling for a super chic look. The ‘Caisey’ basque uses a fine mesh to sculpt the body while underwiring gently boosts the bust. ‘Iyla’ layers French leavers lace over an ornate net with power mesh. A sparkly thread within the fabric makes this extra special for low lights and a high impact.
The ‘Ivana’ velvet and tulle corset and pencil skirt offer head-turning glamour for Christmas. ‘Ameliah’ is a ladylike red and black set with baroque inspiration. Delicate tulle sits upon the cup of the bust for the party season’s prettiest décolletage. The matching deep suspender is a popular shape that creates a flattering curve. The scarlet red ‘Carmilla’ set defines an elegant silhouette in everyone’s favourite seasonal shade.
