‘Then she began to dance… she depicted the frenzy of love that demands satisfaction. She danced like the priestesses of the Indies, like the Nubian girls of the cataracts, like the bacchantes of Lydia. She twisted from side to side like a flower shaken by the wind.’
- Gustave Flaubert, Salome
For Spring Summer 2015, Agent Provocateur takes looks to the seductive queens of ancient times to inspire a collection of intoxicating extravagance. From Helen Mirren’s scintillating portrayal of Caesonia in Caligula to Elizabeth Taylor as Cleopatra, a heightened sense of opulence and carnality underlines the entirety of the demi-couture range.

For Soirée, the 1950’s became a decade not for coy glances and white picket fences, but for tassels, crystals and feathers… the era of the showgirl. For Agent Provocateur’s SS14 main line, a domestic goddess in the 1950’s was imagined: perky and perfect, respectable but secretly ravishing.
Dancing divas glisten with hand-sewn beads and fine silvery threads, and waft weightlessly in the finest silks and the most intricate lace. Agent Provocateur’s couture line represents true, old-fashioned, no-holds-barred luxury. Each piece whether a megawatt gown or the tiniest sliver of suspender is created with skill and dexterity, and only with the richest fabrics that can be found.
