Agent Provocateur

Joe Corre has left Agent Provocateur.

Over the past few months Joe has been focusing on other projects and I think he just felt - having achieved so much with Agent Provocateur - he wanted to move on to new challenges

The co-founder of the lingerie giants - son of designer Vivienne Westwood and ex-Sex Pistols manager Malcolm McLaren - has decided to part ways with the company as he wants to move on with his career.

The company's CEO Garry Hogarth said: "Over the past few months Joe has been focusing on other projects and I think he just felt - having achieved so much with Agent Provocateur - he wanted to move on to new challenges. The business is going well; we are four per cent up on last year and we have a very strong design team, so we are very confident about the future. We won't be looking to replace Joe."

Corre - who will remain a shareholder of the brand but will have no creative input - will now concentrate on his menswear label, A Child of the Jago, and other projects.

Hogarth says he is looking forward to the future of Agent Provocateur as the company has lots of exciting projects.

He told Vogue.com: "We have several licensing deals in the pipeline. By the end of the week we will have signed a fragrance deal, jewellery is coming in association with BJD, sunglasses, umbrellas and we are also in talks about bedding - which fits the brand perfectly. We also have about seven international store openings projected for this year; including Moscow, Switzerland, Korea, Malaysia, Spain and Eastern Europe."
