Penelope Cruz’s lingerie line inspired by rock star rebels

Penelope believes showing a hint of lingerie in an outfit is acceptable if done in the right way.

Penelope Cruz’s latest collection for Agent Provocateur has a rock star vibe.

The Spanish actress and her sister Monica teamed with the British lingerie company over two years ago on L’Agent, a competitively priced range geared towards to the younger customer.

Speaking about her latest L’Agent collection, which was created along with Agent Provocateur Creative Director Sarah Shotton, Penelope says she was inspired by a specific genre of glamour.

“My sister Monica and I love to tell a story with the collections, this season it’s all about rock ‘n’ roll, and a woman’s rebellious nature,” she told Vogue Australia. “We introduced new fabrics this season like fishnet effect lace or with a hint of lurex which looks so modern. Each season just keeps getting better and better.”

The collection features black bras adorned with tiny red roses and plunging lace bodysuits which can be worn with ripped jeans or under cool leather jackets. And Penelope believes showing a hint of lingerie in an outfit is acceptable, if done in the right way.

“I personally like to keep it simple, a clean white shirt slightly unbuttoned with jeans over one of our bodies like Reia, so you can see just a hint of it. That to me is sexy but not too much,” she shared.

Penelope adds that the collection has something for everyone, ranging from the sporty to the dramatic. But as every woman is so different, the 42-year-old advices people to opt for simple styles when purchasing for their significant other.

“If you aren’t sure I would suggest to play it safe and opt for a slip or a gown,” she smiled.

L’Agent has been a huge success since day one, boasting seven standalone stores in cities such as London and New York, as well as hundreds of stockists around the world.
