While browsing in the lingerie section of Brown Thomas (a favourite pastime of mine) last week I spied a new addition to all the froth and frillery: L’Agent by AP. The range is designed by Penelope Cruz and her sister Monica in collaboration with Agent Provocateur. I was drawn by the pink and black Penelope bra and knickers, but when having a browse on Net-A-Porter I saw lots of other gorgeous items I liked.
L’Agent seems to be at the same price point as Mimi Holliday and Elle McPherson Intimates, with bras for €50-60 and knickers for €30-40. Certainly a lot more affordable than the Agent Provocateur prices. I could definitely see myself splurging on a set from L’Agent and not losing sleep over it!
L’Agent seems to have a slightly younger, more fun, feel than the AP main line, however the quality seemed just as good, with the same attention to design and fabric. The range also includes waspies, chemises, bodysuits, and stockings. You can buy online at Net-A-Porter and Selfridges, and in Dublin at Brown Thomas.
