In honor of #CPHFW, we sat down with GANNI CEO & Creative Director
Ditte Reffstrup to discuss everything from the muse behind the latest collection to her secret guilty pleasure.
I don’t really have a single muse, but right now I’m so excited about the collaborators and talented creatives we are connecting with across our GANNI 202020 year-long project. Starting off with Copenhagen Fashion Week at our #GANNI202020 show we will collaborate with over a dozen creatives from the likes of longtime friends Ana Kraš and Emma Rosenzweig to new friendships with Lulu Kaalund and Shaniqwa Jarvis. I love working with, and being surrounded by, talent from near and far. It’s all about celebrating friendships with kindred spirits and creative sisters around the world.
I hope they feel energized and take a feeling of togetherness for the future decade with them.
I don’t look to trends; I always go with my gut.
Accessory to wear
A GANNI bag and Sophie Bille Brahe diamonds.
Place in Copenhagen
It’s so hard to choose! If you’re ever heading to CPH, take a peek at our @ganni.guide.
For some culture, I’d hands down say go visit the Louisiana Museum of Modern Art. It’s a little bit out of town on the outskirts of Copenhagen, but it’s one of my all-time favorites. The architecture and view of the surrounding lake is pure beauty. The in-house collection is in a league of its own and I always come home inspired.
Piece from your closet
I have a really big vintage collection. But right now my day-to-day wardrobe hero is a GANNI shirt with a large Peter Pan collar.
My not-so-guilty pleasure is dancing to 90s music. Nicolaj and I both love a good party!
All time favorite is Léon: The Professional- Natalie Portman’s look is iconic!
The Grand Budapest Hotel - or really just any Wes Anderson movie!
Uff - I don’t know! I am a bit of a hoarder - I keep things forever. I hate throwing things out. I still have a pair of Converse I bought when I was 15.
Minimalism or maximalism
I don’t really like to think we operate in binary terms and rules. I am always drawn to whatever makes you feel good. If you’re not having fun with fashion, what’s the point? With that said, I love things that have an unexpected detail - something bold and confident.
Skirts or jeans
I feel most at home in my jeans. I’m a tomboy at heart.
Coffee or tea
Cortado, all day, every day.
Colors or neutrals
Heels or flats
I bike everywhere in Copenhagen so I am always in flats. Right now I’m loving loafers.
