Agent Provocateur Launch Online Autumn/Winter Soiree collection

By Paul Joseph

The Soiree Collection by British lingerie company Agent Provocateur – featuring a £15,000 leather playsuit – has launched online.

The collection was originally launched two years ago, but was only available in selected Agent Provocateur boutiques. Now it is being sold online, featuring everything from a £200 pair of knickers up to the £15,000 playsuit.

Handmade form tassels and Swarovski glass beads, the playsuit is on sale exclusively at Harrods department store in London.

Inspired by the women of silent cinema in the 1920s and 30s, as well as the gangster molls of the early Hollywood talkies, the collection includes luxurious items such as a corset and corseted skirt set that layers French corded lace over wet-look satin.

Other notable items include a monochrome Gingham check set overlaid with a weighty white lace, and an underbust leather bra paired with silk chiffon pleat trousers to create a cool Jazz Age look.

Agent Provocateur was founded by Joseph Corré and Serena Rees in London in 1994.
