A glossy, two-story lingerie boudoir for the Park Avenue crowd, Agent Provocateur features everything from the nice (French Chantilly lace and pleated tulle bras) to the naughty (Swarovski crystal-studded riding crops). Pink uniformed sex kitten salesgirls are on hand for assistance with sexy bra and panty sets, silky loungewear, swim, and racy kink like blindfolds and nipple tassels. Past the chandelier bedecked lobby is a slick hosiery library with over 40 different types, including old-style back-seamed stayups and real silk stockings. Those not interested in browsing underthings can wait in the gray chinoiserie wallpapered salon area or peruse AP’s range of erotic fiction, Linda Farrow collaborated sunglasses, and semi-precious body jewelry. Upstairs, brides can find “something blue” for their bridal trousseau from AP’s wedding collection or venture into the couture Soirée line for handmade lace underpinnings for their wedding night.
