Agent Provocateur Swimwear Capitalizes on Bondage Trend

  |   By Laurie Shapiro

Capitalizing on the popular “bondage” and “fetish” lingerie trends very much in vogue now, the newest Agent Provocateur swimwear collection is it’s naughtiest yet.

Titled Summertime Secrets, the Spring/Summer 2014 range is all about secret desires and dark fantasies. Straps, chains, and bands sculpt, bind, and adorn, playing a titillating game of revealing and concealing. The whole point is in teasing your poolside admirer with promises of what is to come in the privacy of the bedroom.

One of the edgiest styles, the Tricja bikini, uses hardware and harnesses as a nod to bondage play. Large gold eyelets along the bandeau top link to a choker with detachable t-bar chains. Gold chains wink in the sun as they “cage” the breasts and tempt your admirers to release the toggles. Matching bikini bottoms connect to a detachable belt-style harness, with chains both in the back and front. The overall look is one that flirts with both luxury and debauchery.

 Continuing the “kinky” theme, the Shelby swimsuit uses a series of straps to wrap and bind the body at the waist, hips, and bust. The bikini top and bottom are connected by a dramatic center band that urges the eye up and around the various straps. Square shaped hardware where straps meet create dramatic focal points along the center of the body. This suit is made for making both a memorable entrance as well as exit, as straps gather in the back and frame tiny bikini bottoms.

Moving away from black and it’s obvious connection to the “dark” side of fantasies, there are several brightly hued pieces in the collection that really stand out. The Kimmi bikini is a rich shade of violet that adds glamour to another strappy style. The strapless top is padded for a boost to cleavage, which all eyes will be on as the top edge is pierced with small eyelets and threaded with spaghetti straps that cup the breasts and join together in jewelry hardware for a halter style that really wows. Matching bikini bottoms have eyelets along the leg openings, both in front and back, with straps that wrap around the hips and dip to fasten in jewelry hardware to further emphasize your curves.

The Lexxi one piece is an innovative bandage style with diagonal bands of fabric that fluidly move around the body, creating dramatic cutaways to reveal slivers of skin. This daring, one-shoulder style has a deep cut out along the bust line to frame your cleavage. This unusual style capitalizes on its sense of movement, with each band precariously placed along your curves just begging to be unraveled.

Lastly, the Blaize one-piece utilizes a very different approach to seduce. Zipped up tight and sculpted to the body, this maillot features zippers placed in strategic parts along your curves, tempting their release. This dynamic style utilizes the conceal as much as it utilizes the reveal. Each incredibly sexy in their own way. The zippers create interesting design elements when closed, or create tantalizing peeks of skin when opened. This allows for a myriad of ways to customize the suit, and different experience each time you wear it.

Agent Provocateur has long been a fantasy label, with a corresponding price point mostly unattainable for the masses (pieces here range from $290 to $570). The Summertime Secrets collection lures you into the fantasy of embracing your hidden desires, of flaunting your sexuality, and ultimately transforming yourself.
