When I lived in Melbourne, one of the many jobs I had (I had four at once) was working in a Parisian inspired lingerie boutique called Smitten Kitten. This tiny store was inconspiciously tucked away down a dingy dead-end alley, where our neighbours were, junkies, rubbish-bins and probably a few ferel rodents, it certainly wasn’t the kind of environment you’d expect to find exquisite lingerie being sold. However as soon as you climbed the few steps up into the store, the intoxicating scent of Agent Provocateur perfume would hit you, the crimson velvet walls would close in around you and you would instantly be swept away into another world, one in celebrates the art of seduction. It was while working here that I first discovered Parsian lingerie designer, Chantal Thomass and UK designer Agent Provocateur and I’ve been in love ever since!
