Agent Provocateur’s new model army marches on Selfridges to launch new lingerie line
By Eleanor Glover
Dressed in little more than their underwear a host of models descended on London’s Oxford Street today to launch the new Agent Provocateur bra.
Clad in thigh-high boots, zip-up pants, braces and bra, topped off with aviator sunglasses and caps, the army of lingerie models marched on Selfridges department store, stopping the traffic along the way.
Despite it being the crack of dawn the troop of flag-wielding females caused quite a stir as they paraded along the capital’s main shopping street as bus drivers and black cabbies looked on in surprise.
If it had been any later, who knows what sort of mayhem could have ensued.
Described as the AP Super Army the collection of models were in town to promote Agent Provocateur’s New World Order campaign and Nikita range of underwear including the £75 push-up bra.
The promotion coincides with the release of the underwear label’s new advertising posters which feature 13 different super hero style characters dressed in the company’s trademark raunchy styles.
Nazi chic is a controversial topic in the fetish clothing subculture. The symbolism of fascist, communist, and other regimes remains popular, and a common compromise is to adopt the main design features of Nazi-era clothing – such as peaked caps, jackboots and trenchcoats – but not to include any explicit Nazi symbols. Sometimes substitute symbols are used, with designs that clearly reference the design styles of Nazi symbols without directly copying them.
