«Then she began to dance… she depicted the frenzy of love that demands satisfaction. She danced like the priestesses of the Indies, like the Nubian girls of the cataracts, like the bacchantes of Lydia. She twisted from side to side like a flower shaken by the wind.» Gustave Flaubert, Salome
Agent Provocateur, inspired by seductive belles of all time (Cleopatra, Nefertiti, Salome and Caesonia), has issued another luxurious lingerie collection called Soiree for Spring-Summer 2015.
The entire collection is gorgeous, it is shaded with thin mist of intoxicating decadency and exaggerated carnality. But the heart of it is Dimiya dress made of French Guipere with embroidery and naked back (you can see it on the cover), while the soul of the collection is definitely Czarinah set (on the photo below), that shines and glitters like the starry arch.
Cleopatra is known as one of the most outstanding temptresses in the world history. No doubt she knew what to wear to highlight her strong points, giving preference to exquisite glimmering fabrics and sparkling veils. Dimiya dress with the wet-looking lace and provocative naked back, Milanna set with its sensuous satin ribbons and golden lining, shimmering Anelia with the criss-cross straps — all that is sure to satisfy the most sophisticated girl and to accentuate her sexuality.
Nefertiti was famous in Egypt and beyond for her incredible beauty and superlative style. Her contemporaries called her “The Perfect One”. The ender Latuta lavender set would have probably become one of the most precious treasures in her boudoir wardrobe.
The dance of the seven veils, performed by young Salome before Herod Antipas and his guests on his birthday, charmed the King so much that he agreed to grant her every wish. This dance is considered one of the most voluptuous and dangerous displays of seduction (if you know what she asked Herod for). But what would Salome of today select? Maybe, this almost-naked Lulie set for her dance? Or perhaps the glittering pink stars of Czarinah set?
Caesonia’s sexuality was so powerful that Caligula, the Emperor known for his carnality, married her and shared his bed only with her, which was absolutely not typical of him. They say, when she danced she wore nothing but jewels. Varvarra playsuit, made of sparkling golden paillettes assembled with chains, would send her into raptures.
Besides lingerie the collection of the new season offers swimwear.
The new collection is partially available in the official brand website. The rest of it will appear there in the neatest future.
