Hanro’s Beverly Hills shop just got a makeover.
That is, the Swiss intimates apparel brand, which dates back to 1884, has teamed with contemporary artist Blanda to create a new mural for the southern California location.
Calming shades of pale blue and goddess-like figures embody the Hanro x Blanda mural, which spans an entire wall of the Beverly Hills shop.
“The two-dimensional image works in perfect synergy with the room and is rendered three-dimensional by the architecture,” the artist, who is also from Switzerland, said in a statement. “In that respect, the store visit can become an experience on many levels and blurs the lines between creative and commercial.”

Blanda added that the goal of the mural is to evoke “an emotion of well-being and ease.”
“Inspired by shape, form and movement, the mural artwork strives to create a visual composition that harmoniously flows with the fabrics, colors and textures of the Hanro garments,” she said.
DJ Camila Grey supplied the music for the event.
Fellow artists and socialites attended the painting’s debut party on April 24 at the Los Angeles location, which opened last fall. The guest list included artist and photographer Tasya Van Ree, celebrity stylist
