Noticing the struggles and priorities of her kids and their peers, now in their 20s, over the past decade, made her realise that the new generation needed something different from what Agent Provocateur offered. The aesthetic — cool and casual — offers a more low-key take on sexiness, and Rees says it is designed to cater to a new generation of young people who share everything.

The marvel of this Glasgow-set debut film from writer-director Harry Wootliff is to make these genres overlap. They are respectively Elena and Jake: she is working in arts centre administration and he is a postgrad student doing research in marine biology. Wootliff playfully creates an opening situation of almost Richard Curtis-style romcomness. They are all in their mid-thirties and are deep into conversations about relationships, coupledom, singledom. Elena herself is single and she is being seriously hit on by a pretty good-looking man known to her female friends as a nice sort, a solid guy — and a catch. But should she just get over herself and settle? But Elena makes a fateful judgment call back at her place: Jake is only 26 and she — eager not to freak him out — pretends that she is only a couple of years older. On the face of it, this is not a very serious problem. They are passionately, almost magically in love and the white lie is soon removed from the record.
