Agent Provocateur has always been a little on the cheeky side, and if they have something to say they say it. And that’s just what co-founder Joe Corre has done.
When he reportedly discovered that members of Reprieve, a U.K. human rights charity, had been accused of smuggling undies to a prisoner held at GuantÃ¡namo Bay, he decided to help. Obviously not by smuggling in some Agent Provocatuer knickers, after all he could get in a bit of trouble, but by creating the “Fair Trial My Arse” panties with Reprieve founder Clive Stafford Smith.
“I don’t really mind who buys them, or if we sell any at all,” said Corre. “As a company we’ve often taken an interest in the political theater. Whoever said you can’t mix business with politics is obviously an idiot, as the two are inextricably linked.”
The bright orange knickers match the orange of a prison jumpsuit and are on sale down in AP stores in the US and UK with half the proceeds going to Reprieve.
