31 Days of Halloween – Day 5 – Season of the Witch
Last year Agent Provocateur sold a range of lingerie under the title “Season of the Witch.” The pages for “Season of the Witch” are now gone (they were at http://www.agentprovocateur.com/witches.html), but all thirteen images are archived below. Whether you can get the individual pieces any more is anyone’s guess.
I was tempted to list this as “stuff I leave out.” The “Season of the Witch” title used by Agent Provocateur doesn’t bear much relation to the styling and decor of the images and—inasmuch as any visual narrative relates to witches—it relates only to the persecution of witches, a subject I try to avoid.* (Although it is popular among artists who think it is sexy to depict women being tortured. I don’t.) Still, I probably would have eventually got around to posting these images if I hadn’t been doing this Halloween Countdown, so here they are as your Day 5 treat. Enjoy.
*The two male figures in photo 8 (and 2,3,4,7,10,11,12) are probably soldiers; they seem to have arrested the woman being bound in photos 8,9,13 (who is, therefore, a witch?); and photos 1,7,8 have a book in them, seemingly a Bible, but this is being trod under foot by Jodie, so perhaps everyone is a witch expect blondie. It is all a bit vague. Perhaps the original Agent Provocateur promotion had text that makes all this a bit clearer.
