Silks and Lace and Corsets, Oh, My!

Agent Provocateur brings sexy to the city

British luxury lingerie retailer Agent Provocateur, known for its provocative ad campaigns that have starred the likes of Kate Moss and Kylie Minogue, opens its second boutique August 15 in Grand Canal Shoppes in The Venetian and The Palazzo. (Its first is in The Forum Shops at Caesars.) The brand’s main lingerie collections, along with its Classics (like the Mercy corset), Bridal and ultra-sexy showgirl-inspired Soirée pieces (with Swarovski crystals and intricate beading), are celebrated for their fit, craftsmanship and use of fabrics such as silk and French Leavers lace. The new space will feature the company’s classic baby pink-and-black color palette, along with gray and black-lace carpets. The employee uniform, an iconic pink housecoat designed by Vivienne Westwood, is one of the hallmarks of an AP shopping experience. In addition to the Spring/Summer 2014 and Autumn/Winter 2014 collections, the boutique will carry swimwear and cover-ups. Accessory options range from marabou heels and satin gloves to soap sets and fragrances. Grand Canal Shoppes in The Venetian  and The Palazzo;
