Since I blogged about Agent Provocateur’s recent move towards extremely un-sexy models, I thought I’d put the URL out there a bit in the hope that someone at the company might read what I’d said and respond. I sent it to their oddly named Twitter account, which claims to be the official Twitter for the “sexiest lingerie in the world”, but heard nothing back. Not a peep.
