Johanna Topooco

WAWA’S FOUNDER AND DESIGNER, MOTHER OF TWO BOYS

FONDEST CHILDHOOD MEMORY?
My adventurous travels with my mother. Especially the times we went to Bolivia and visited my grandmother Marcela, a little wrinkled and thoughtful old woman, who lived on the high plateau, 3500 meters above the sea, in her mud-house – the same place where my father lives today.

FAVORITE CLOTHING AS A CHILD?
Accessories were my all-time favorite thing, especially my elastic hair bands. I could spend hours fixing my hair or deciding which rings or earrings to wear. Today I’m almost opposite.

FAVORITE PLACE?
Fårö, a small Swedish island, where I spend a couple of weeks every summer with my whole family. I just love the feeling when we get off the ferry and head towards the family house there and I love being surrounded by the island’s solitude and the quiet landscape.

WAWA’S BUSINESS WIZARD, FOUNDER AND CEO OF THE BEER COMPANY MIKKELLER, FATHER OF TWO GIRLS

FONDEST CHILDHOOD MEMORY?
Holiday trips to Greece where I played with the local children and ate fresh seafood by the sea.

FAVORITE CLOTHING AS A CHILD?
My foot shaped Ecco shoes.

FAVORITE PLACE?
My familie’s cottage in the countryside of Copenhagen. Long summer evenings there in the garden, barbequing –  or cold winter days in front of the fire place.

IN CHARGE OF WAWA PR. MOTHER OF TWO GIRLS

FONDEST CHILDHOOD MEMORY?
Visiting my grandparents in the north of Jutland. I remember those summers as being really sunny and warm with trips to the beach and walks in the forest – bicycling along yellow grain fields, picking strawberries and peas from my grandparent’s garden.

FAVORITE CLOTHING AS A CHILD?
My karate pyjamas. My older brother had one as well and we used to play that we were martial arts fighters.

FAVORITE PLACE?
The beautiful Taoist temple in Hong Kong, where my dad’s urn is situated. I love to spend time there alone. The heavy smell of incense and the quiet sound of running water from a small fountain.
