Euro lingerie worth the splurge
We?ve long eyed the Agent Provocateur shop on Melrose Avenue but never splurged on its megabucks bras and panties. But now we find ourselves frequenting L?Agent, the new lower-priced lingerie boutique a few blocks west, which sells the wares of a collaboration between the AP designer and Penelope and Monica Cruz.
Yes, everyone?s favorite Spanish sexpot actress and her look-alike sis are designing underwear. And frankly, the collections are as fetching as the Srs. Cruz themselves. We?re loving the just-short-of-neon-purple lace demi bra ($92), which we?d allow to peek out from a tank top or show through a sheer silk blouse. And the super-sweet-yet-sexy fawn-and-gold-toned mesh panties ($44--with the matching bra ($74), of course.
We?re (blushing now) equally interested in some of the more out-there options like a leopard garter belt ($64) and stunning seamed nylons ($30). One glance at the eye-popping selection at the tiny new boutique and you?ll be thinking more in Technicolor than in any shade of grey.
