Agent Provocateur-Knickers and Knocker Covers

"Ladies' intimate apparel...I said, Ladies' intimate apparel...oh, all right then, the knickers and knocker covers!"
-Miss Brahams on Are You Being Served?

Agent Provocateur is a well known lingerie brand based in the United Kingdom. The company has stores in 13 countries across the globe including major cities such as London, New York, Vancouver, Las Vegas, Los Angeles, Paris, Vienna and Berlin. The first shop was opened on London's Broadwick Street in the Soho district in 1994

London is a little bit different from the US is it's style and fashion-I have always been of the opinion that you can't really have fashion in hot weather. Not you would want to wear the goods from Agent Provocateur in a snow storm, but there is a bit more flash and style here. After all, Victoria's Secret doesn't sell Masks and Whips- or do they?

The recent news on the Agent Provocateur front has to do with pop star Lily Allen-who has been dropped as the face of lingerie firm. Agent Provocateur told Lily Allen she was free to pursue other activities-after just four months into her role as spokesmodel.

The Smile singer, 22, was announced as the replacement for supermodel Kate Moss in November, but Allen's contract with the sexy underwear company has now been terminated as the result of a reported rift between bosses Joe Corre and Serena Rees, who are in the midst of a divorce.

However, Allen's saucy promotional advertisements could still feature in magazine editorials, reports The Sun.

A spokesperson for Agent Provocateur says, "We haven't made any decisions."

The original London Agent Provocateur is in Soho-6 Broadwick Street Soho, London W1-to be exact. Lots of dark curtains and red velvet. What is it about red velvet and sexy knickers?
