Fashion News: Penelope and Monica Cruz for Agent Provocateur
The Cruz sisters have collaborated with luxury lingerie giant Agent Provocateur, to create the brands Autumn/Winter 2014 collection.
The two set out to create wearable styles for the brand that were flattering and sexy. They have created a collection made up of a gorgeous selection of bras, briefs, suspenders and baby doll dresses, in satin tulle and lace, ranging from classic black and neutral shades, to bold, vibrant hues. Staying true to their Spanish roots, they also named each piece in the collection after Spanish girls, not excluding Penelope and Monica of course.
After Monica Cruz was cast as the face of the company’s Autumn/Winter 2012-13 campaign, ad expressed a great interest and passion for the brand, a relationship was built, resulting in this wonderful new collection, and a 5 year partnership between her, Penelope and the brand.
Alongside the collection, Penelope Cruz was given the opportunity to make her directors debut, directing a new advert for the lingerie company, set in a stunning mansion in the sisters’ hometown of Madrid. The six minute advert is full of beautiful scantily clad women, engaging in all sorts of mischief and partying, as actor Miguel Angel Silvestre saunters through the mansion, after Russian Model Irina Shayk. She performs a lap dance on Miguel, until he suddenly wakes up to realise that it was all a dream.
The ad includes cameos from a very pregnant Monica Cruz, and Penelope’s husband Javier Bardem. Her brother Eduardo Cruz also composed the soundtrack for the advert, making this every bit a family affair.
