Agent Provocateur at the Rivoli

...and another Rivoli Ballroom shoot, this was from Agent Provocateur 2005 website. Designers Large explain: 'The theme this year was magic. Shot at the Rivoli Ballroom in Brockley, we were immediately inspired by Victorian Music Halls, Vaudiville and turn of the century circus posters'.

There is certainly something erotically charged about the Rivoli's red velvet, not to mention the sense of being in a film set with all the possibilities of re-invention and role play. Night of a Thousand Stars, which was held there in the mid to late 1990s, was certainly one of the sexiest clubs I've been to. I will post some flyers and memories here soon, or at least those that are decent.
