Introducing Anna Winck
Any nicknames? Wincken!
Occupation? Freelance stylist and content creator.
3 things that describes you? Always close to laughter, believer in love and a bit anxious.
3 things that describes your style? Vintage, color and childish.
Any guilty pleasures? Swedish chocolate Lindt and toast with loooads of butter, cheese and sea salt.
What have made you the most proud? When my sister left her husband to be, after she caught him being unfaithful. My sister is my everything. Ever since our dad passed away, when we were 8 and 10 years old, we have literally grown together. My sister and her husband had just bought their dream house and were getting married the next month. We had the dress and everything was planned for the rest of their lives. If you end up in a situation like that, everyone think, the solution is obvious. But it’s not – you’re giving up your “life”, as you know it.
At what times are you the most happy? When I’m with my friends, drinking coffee for hours, laughing – and when I’m with my family, having dinner and feeling safe.
You have rapidly become immensely popular on the Scandinavian fashion scene – what makes you stand out? I honestly have NO idea. Maybe it’s my “tattooed” style – it seems to create a massive interest from my followers. I’m super grateful for all the love I’ve received in such short time.
How are you keeping sane and happy in a crazy time of COVID-19? I’m out power walking a lot, and I go for a morning swim every single day. I try to make the most of every “little” situation of the day. Like making every cup of coffee in the morning special. And I’m reading loads books and enjoying crosswords.
Anna Winck on Style
What is your go to key items? Acupressure mat, sunglasses and face/hand lotion.
What item in your wardrobe do you use the most? My oversized blue blazer.
Have you always been so colorful? Yes! My colorful vintage style started already at the age of 14-15 years old.
What is the inspiration behind your style? I get a bit inspired by everything and everyone, I guess – it might be a cliché, but it’s true. My inspiration comes from cartoons, any movie at all (Pretty woman), magazines, and of course my favourite inspiring girls on Instagram, Hanna MW, Blanca Miro, Anna Sarlvit, Simone Noa Hedal, Reese Blutstein and Courtney Trop.
How would you describe your aesthetic? I would say my aesthetic is all-sided and versatile. I like the Forrest Gump quote: “Life is like a box of chocolate, you never know, what you’re gonna get”. One day I’m dressed as a school girl, another day I’m all in for oversized sweatpants and hoodie, the third day wearing pencil skirt and scarf.
What is your favourite color to wear? Green. No blue! Or pink, Ahhh I can’t choose.
If you were a color, which one would you be? Pink!
What is your advice in terms of being more courageous with colors?I would start with small things. Maybe a colorful accessorizing. A ring, earring or maybe necklace. A hairclip.
Anna Winck on Jewellery
What are your tips for starting your fine jewellery collection? I love fine jewellery, and if you feel the same, I would start saving little bits here and there – maybe to buy a beautiful ring from you to you. Also look for vintage jewellery pieces in solid gold, maybe something from your grandparents, that has a special meaning. Then start stacking. I love the idea of being a collector. And it’s so nice to relate a type of jewellery to a birthday, special day or special person in your life.
What are your tips for styling your jewellery? I LOVE the mix between feminine and masculine jewellery. I love to have chunky bracelets combined with a feminine diamond ring. I think that’s what is making each and every piece of my jewellery stand out.
What do you look for when picking out jewellery? Every morning I put on all of my rings and – depending on what mood I’m in – I go from there. Do I feel happy and colorful today? If yes, then I go with my playful and quirky rings combined with my favourite Anpé rings.
Do you always go for the same style, when it comes to jewellery or do you like mixing different styles? I love to mix feminine and masculine jewellery. I really think it goes so nicely together.
Why did you choose Anpé as your fine jewellery brand? It was actually really love at first sight. Anpé is just as colorful as me, so the brand feels like a match made in heaven to me. I love to find a small fine jewellery brand like Anpé, and it feels so much more special to wear jewellery from a small brand instead of the obvious big brands.
How do you style your Anpé pieces? The more the merrier. I’m always wearing my 2 Sarah Lil Pink and Green mix together with my customized Hima Ayis green ring. And I’m dreaming of adding the Josephine ring to the collection one day.
Why did you choose these specific Anpé pieces? My customized green ring means so much to me. I got it as my “single ring”, and it symbolizes the strength I had after getting out of a not so great relationship. I felt strong on my own for the first time in my life. For the Sarah Lil Pink and Green I absolutely love the combination of simplicity and beauty mixed in these delicate rings.
