We like things that border on the edge of inappropriate, and if there’s anyone that knows how to teeter right on that border in the world of fashion, its Oak Street’s high-end, sexy lingerie shop Agent Provocateur.
If expensive whips, leather and classily-designed bondage cuffs were in the realm of winter must-haves (which we assure you, they were), it only makes sense that the debut of warmer weather means less clothing in public. The design house’s sultry new swimwear collection, comprised of barely-there strips of fabric and lingerie-inspired designs, will be the gloriously inappropriate “clothing” that keeps Chicago’s sexiest women from indecent exposure at the beach this summer.
The glam pieces focus on cut-out one-pieces and naughty little bikinis that leave little to the imagination. Lace, Brazilian-backed bottoms and even snake-print fabric are all part of the collection.
There’s even a boned swimsuit (which looks identical to a bustier) with a back zip and cleavage-enhancing molded cups --something that looks shockingly similar to a costume Madonna paired with fishnets while gyrating on-stage during her concert tour.
But be prepared to pay the price for this kind of beach sexiness; these suites can run upwards of $790.
And do let us know if you plan to sport one of these suits at Castaways this summer, because we’ll be there, front and center.
