Russia: Agent Provocateur Caught with its “Pants Down”?

Pants Down

“Pants Down”?

It appears that the sexy frilly lingerie brand Agent Provocateur has provoked its Russian fans. While launching a whole new site for Russia, Agent Provocateur has blocked access to its international sites from Russia. Allegedly the prices for its products on its Russian site is 50% to 100 % higher than on its international sites. Effectively it has significantly increased its product price for its Russian fans by way of modern internet censorship. While baring in mind their products cannot be said to have a lot of “substance” anyway, I would say this, when true, is a big Internet Marketing #FAIL.

Update

One thought on “Russia: Agent Provocateur Caught with its “Pants Down”?”

  1. It seems that there is a market for some form of anonymous Russian language site located elsewhere to enable the Russian ladies to approach from Russia or just setting up a site that bypasses the AP cookies
