This is the second "Agent Provocateur" branded sex book to be published under the Pavilion imprint - in time for Valentine's Day. Simply combining a pack of their arousing 'strip poker' card- and the rules of the game, "Strip Poker" is the perfect gift for anyone you desire. Rees and Corre introduced their vision of lingerie avoiding the British prudery that insists on categorising anything to do with sex as sleazy or smutty. The aim was to create an availability of high quality designer lingerie with creative flair to stimulate, enchant and arouse both wearers and their partners targeting the more affluent customer. First published 2006.
Joseph Corre (son of Vivien Westwood and Malcolm McLaren) and wife Serena Rees (London W1) opened the first Agent Provocateur shop 10 years ago arousing a media frenzy usually reserved for superstars. The company has become a phenomenal success (with shops in London W1, W11 and EC3, Birmingham, Russia, Dubai, New York and California) which has spawned the explosion of lingerie into fashion. Huge expansion plans are afoot for 2006-7. Agent Provocateur has gone on to launch a thriving mail order catalogue an award-winning website, produce complementary accessories including shoes, jewellery and a very successful fragrance and beauty line - and now books!
