Agent Provocateur

Atlanta got a little sexier when AP opened its doors at Phipps Plaza this summer. The London-based retailer (founded by the son of famed designer Dame Vivienne Westwood and punk icon Malcolm McLaren) is known for its lacy, skimpy, and strappy goods, plus a recent line designed by Penélope Cruz and her equally steamy sis Mónica. Though some of its products may veer into Fifty Shades territory, on a whole, AP brings an upmarket edginess to underpinnings that hasn’t been seen in this city before.
