50 Questions with Copenhagen style maker Anne Johannsen

Scandinavian street style may be more associated with the minimalistic tones of white, beige, and browns, but Danish Instablogger Anne Johannsen is adding colour to Copenhagen with a feed full of pastels and bold hues. A manager at Ganni, the brand’s playful sartorial style is clearly aligned with Anne’s taste in fashion – with an attitude that seemingly errs on the side of ‘anything goes’.

Outed by her friends as the “queen of pastels”, we were intrigued to find out a bit more about the behind-the-feed life of Anne Johannsen. Here, we pull her aside for our latest Fast 50 to talk everything from misconceptions to being picked on the Vogue 100 list.
