Celebrating 130 Years of Dressing the World’s Most Seductive Women

Hanro, the luxury intimates brand, has the honor and distinction of dressing women for the past 130 years. To celebrate, Sakes Fifth Avenue has devoted their lingerie department to Hanro’s deceptively simple yet very seductive line. Filling the walls with portraits of iconic women in Hanro, the department store showcased how prolific the brand has been.

Hanro commissioned a handful of artists, such as Catherine Parr, Petra Dufkova and Marc Antoine Coulon to paint watercolors of the legendary models and actresses in their lingerie. Ignition was hired to reproduce the paintings without sacrificing the beauty and integrity of the originals. By scanning the portraits and then mounting C-prints onto Gator, each print was then matted and framed, looking just as luminous as the watercolors themselves.
