The demand for luxe goods has diminished in the recession, but Hanro of Switzerland sees opportunity as it celebrates its 125th anniversary.
Founded by Albert Handschin in Liestal in 1884, the Hanro name became a brand in 1913 and introduced its first marquee items in 1930 — ultralight Spencer Bra tops and circular-knit bodysuits of fine wool. The company entered the boom years of raschel lace in the Sixties and Seventies, seamless cotton renditions in the Eighties and launched modernistic microlingerie called Cosmetic Lingerie in 1999.

"It's really hard sometimes. I think I have a reputation for being really tough and aggressive and pushy but I really am a very shy person who wants to be liked, and that's the conflict constantly. There's something that takes hold - I want people to like me, I don't want to be mean - but if I see something that just cries out to be answered, I go for it," says renowned NBC News correspondent Andrea Mitchell.
