DALLAS, Apr 18, 2010 / FW/ — How do you make swimsuits sexier? If you’re Agent Provocateur, there are a thousand and one ways like creating a bustier swimsuit or a lacy bikini.

For Summer 2010, Agent Provocateur presents a bold swimwear collection that teases in punchy tones and figure defining forms with the Portia, Tatum, Tatum Bikini, Risa and Zahra styles.

Hinting at the 1970s glamour, the Portia swimsuit and bikini glimmer poolside in a slinky black and silver wet- look snake print. The Chic bandeau bikini top has a halter neck rouleau that can be tied under the bust or around the neck and is paired with a neat- fitting ruched hipster brief. Both the bikini and one-piece feature inner wiring to create and enhance shape.

The Tatum cut-out matte black swimsuit is tailored to sculpt to a feminine form, with a waist belt that cinches to emphasis an hour-glass illusion. Gold ring detailing adds further glamour at the bust apex and breastbone. A Tatum Bikini version is also available in shocking cerise pink.

Risa, in matte black has a plunge- line bikini top and hipster hotpant that together make it a figure-fixing classic. Risa is softened with pink stitching and gold Agent Provocateur buttons.

Zahra is one of Agent Provocateur’s most seductive silhouettes to date. Laced corsetry down the front of the swimsuit reveals a ferocious flash of red underlining. Cleavage enhancing collar-style bust cups add further drama to the boned structure. A back zip allows this piece to be functional, as well adding a final vampy flourish.
