This German couple can certainly teach us a thing or two about style. Based in Berlin, Britt Kanja and Günther Krabbenhöft have made rounds on social media because of their elegant, quirky, and sophisticated outfits. Both Britt and Günther share a love for fashion and, obviously, great taste, too. No matter where they go, they are surely bound to turn some heads. Naturally, the stylish duo is loved by people on social media, too, and praised for their inspiring lifestyle.
It’s now been a couple of years since Günther Krabbenhöft first went viral and was dubbed “Hipster Grandpa.” For Günther, what keeps him young and happy is dancing, which he says he discovered only at an older age. “Since then, I’ve been able to skip my other fitness program, I just need a little strength training on the side,” he told the German outlet Süddeutsche Zeitung.
Naturally, many wonder whether the “Hipster Grandpa” came from a fashion background or was a stylist. “I would have liked that, yes,” he told one news outlet. “But I wasn’t someone who rebelled, I did what my parents told me to do.” So Günther went on to become a chef. “It was hard for me at first, but it was okay. A completely normal job.”
Nonetheless, Günther assures he was always into fashion: “In Hanover, where I grew up, we used to run around in miniskirts when the miniskirt was just coming out for men. With Roman sandals, too! But we quickly let that go. When I came to Kreuzberg over 30 years ago, I mainly dressed in black in the typical alternative look here—but always special with a personal twist.”
