Pretty little things

1 Agent-Provocateur-Phoenix-Bra

Off anywhere nice on your hols? Of course you are. In which case you’ll be wanting to pack a few personal treats of the luxe, lace variety in your Globe-Trotter luggage. Agent Provocateur’s summer lingerie is big on saccharine sweetness with a side serving of neon in the details. Such as their signature just-brief-enough lace knickers, which come in romantic sherbet shades (or unapologetic lime green for the boldly inclined). Or for classicists there’s the dramatic romance of embroidered black lace, best demonstrated in the Petunia brief, a cheeky low-rise cut in black tulle edged with delicate embroidered flowers.

Tip: pack your luggage (or lingerie drawer) with an old fashioned wrapped soap or two to infuse your smalls with your favourite scent. Or invest in an entirely new fragrance to help make your trip even more memorable. If you like your scent fruity but seductive, I can recommend Agent Provocateur’s ‘Fatale Black’ eau de parfum, a gourmandy blend of mango, blackcurrant and Madagascan pink pepper that comes in a rather beautiful faceted bottle. After all, isn’t the olfactory experience just as important in the ritual of getting dressed – or undressed?
