Agent Provocateur is only few of blocks away from Kiki de Montparnasse, but it is considerably closer to the old 42nd Street in spirit. The vibe is more user-friendly for embarrassed guys shopping alone and packs of teenage girls; the lights are brighter, the music is dumber, louder and younger. The haute factor seems played down everywhere but in the price tags (purple silk garter, $100; matching bra, $150; matching thong, $70). Many items fall into a black and pink, rockabilly hot-rod style. It is, in essence, a vamped-up version of Victoria's Secret by way of Johnny Rockets, the retro diner chain.
