I know this is not super recent news as it’s been almost two months already that Agent Provocateur is in town. However, for those of you who, like me, still didn’t have the time to check the store out, how about now?
Agent Provocateur was founded by Joseph Corre, the son of Vivienne Westwood, and his now ex-wife Serena Rees in 1994. After becoming a phenomenal success with more than 53 stores worldwide, this British luxury lingerie brand opened its first boutique this summer in Beirut.
I personally love the image that this brand tries to sell. The company is known for producing controversial adverts and it has become popular with celebrities like Paris Hilton, Carmen Electra, Kylie Minogue, Kate Moss and now actress Maggie Gillenhaal.
As for the branch in Beirut, is it located on 109 Allenby Street in Beirut Central District (or downtown). This new boutique features the an original 90s Venetian glass chandelier in the double height entrance of the store. Moreover, as usual, the baby pink and black gloss lacquer furniture is offset with lace print rugs. On the mezzanine level, you can also find an exclusive VIP area and Agent Provocateur’s bridal collection. You can also find other Agent Provocateur products including beauty, accessories, shoes and books.
I think it’s time to make a detour to check this glamorous store out!!
