Spring Summer 2017

“There was nowhere to go but everywhere.” Jack Kerouac, On the Road

See three confident and carefree AP girls driving two classic super-cars with trunks full of smoking hot lingerie. Hear the sound of tyres on a dirt road, the purr of a Ferrari 328 and the growl of a Lamborghini Countach. These strong and stylish women drive their cars as fast as they live their lives. Think the feminist rebellion of Quentin Tarantino’s Death Proof, a dash of the wit and fun of the Cannonball Run, and the cult aesthetic of Vanishing Point.

That ’s the spirit of Sarah Shotton’s SS17 collection for Agent Provocateur, which takes a new departure with a diverse collection that has a strong fashion energy that harmonises with a woman’s style and wardrobe rather than existing under and separate from it. There are two distinct feminine moods represented here. First there is the neon bright and the playful power-mesh peeping from under a simple vest or teamed with shorts and a sneaker. This colourful and playful expression of femininity is inspired by the era when Maripol was art directing Fiorucci. This is fun, sassy, easy, cool. How about a moulded bra and structured silk 50s hot pant dressed in a giant sequins? Bare leg, fishnets, 5 denier or 50 denier, this is a look to rock everywhere from the bedroom to the dance-floor; from DC10 to Lovebox. Fabrics are strewn with popping cherries, pretty pears and kissing lips; trims are neon bright. These pieces are pretty as sets, but take on a funkier and more indy edge when they’re used for mixing, matching and making very much your own. This mix and match insouciance is a concerted break from lingerie’s sometimes too formal diktats. This part of the collection dives into the pleasure of print and surprising and chic colour clashing.

A key piece is a mini kimono in navy and lilac silk chiffon with a wide sleeve in a vintage print from the archive of Giorgio Taroni “I love the little hummingbirds with their dickie bows, from a distance it looks like a giant tropical paisley. I return to Mr Giorgio Taroni’s archive for fantastic prints again and again.” The second part of the collection ramps up the vamp with pieces like a pristine tux, a liquid lame jumpsuit and underwear sets in sleek, glistening and seductive fabrics. Think Tina Chow and Bianca Jagger and a soundtrack of car chase music from a Michael Mann movie. This woman is deadly sexy, with a naughty glint in her eye. Whichever route you choose, make sure you hitch a ride with Agent Provocateur this season. It’s sure to be wicked and wild.
