Last week end was a sunny and beautiful day in Munich, so I ventured out to capture some street shots and explore the fashion scene. My first stop was at Agent Provocateur.
This brand is an absolute legend, and I am so pleased to see how it has expanded world-wide. However, in the mid-90s, when Vivienne Westwood’s son called Joseph Corré first launched the brand together with his wife, it was a small and sort of underground shop for conaisseurs, hidden in the middle of London’s Soho.
I first visited the shop in 1998 and of course, could not refrain from purchasing some lovely underpants. That said, the items were far more vanilla back then and now, its a world of fifty shades of the rainbow – you take your pick! AP has all sorts of beautiful colours, materials and accessories to make ones fantasies come true.
Their prices have gone up alot aswell: If in the 90s their undergarments sold for 60 quid, the now sell for 150 and up. (Just as an example: The devoré kimono robe costs more than €2000)
Here are some shots of the Agent Provocateur store interior – a concession shop situated inside a famous department store named Ludwig Beck.
I also received a goodie bag which turned out to have printed cards with Agent Provocateur’s latest campaign featuring Naomi Campbell and shot by Ellen von Unwerth, as well as a perfume sample and some store information.
What I noticed in the store is that AP has expanded its range to include swimwear. The holiday pieces are truly stunning, but I’m not 100% convinced about the tan-line you will get from wearing them….What do you think?
