Agent Provocateur took inspiration from ‘queens of ancient times’ to develop its ultra-premium SS15 collection, Soiree.
The new demi-couture range, made up of luxury lingerie, sleepwear and corsetry, evokes the seductive powers of Cleopatra, Salomé, Nefertiti and Caesonia.
The Dimiya dress, with is heavy guipure, luxurious wet-look foil and daring scooped key-hole back, is influenced by the swathes of glimmering fabrics and shimmering veils believed to be worn by Cleopatra.
The Vesta corset, made with glistening midnight blue sequins and cut-away details, celebrates the ‘unparalleled beauty and refinement’ of Queen Nefertiti, known as the Lady of Grace, while the daring Yarolika playsuit, a fringed skirt made of sparkling droplets is inspired by Caesonia’s notoriety to dance in nothing but jewels.
Soiree also includes the Latuta lingerie set, made of layers of finest hand-crafted French Leavers lace in rich tones of lavender and aubergine, and Czarinah, a bra, brief and suspender belt in glittering blush pink.
