Hannah Anderson: Magpie Style

Share Hannah Anderson sporting Ame Jewelry bracelet, rings, earrings and necklace

What makes an Âme woman an Âme woman? ‘Going with your gut, living your truth, and not being afraid to express yourself’, says young music star, Hannah Anderson, when asked to define soul. Beautiful on the inside, there is a soulfulness and originality to Hannah Anderson that transcends the classic LA cool-girl trope.

Set to release her latest music project under the artist name Sister, Hannah has featured across various style publications such as i-D Magazine and in the latest Fred Perry campaign with more collaborations on the way. Making an appearance in Raf Simons’ 10-year anniversary photo book entitled “Youth”, Anderson is not just a zeitgeisty muse for fashion designers, but a relevant role model for young women disillusioned with one-noted, cookie-cutter Instagram feeds. Describing the music she creates ‘as the most sacred thing I do’, Hannah penned her first song at fifteen and music has been her ‘go-to form of expression for years’. And on the subject of expression, her first memory of jewellery was watching her ‘first Bollywood musical, aged twelve’ after which she ‘started wearing gold bangles every single day’. Her love for jewellery is no different today, with ears adorned with stacked gold hoops, she says she needs ‘more piercings. Ultimately, that’s the goal’. We know what you mean, Hannah….

So much vintage and so many coats. I’m obsessed with outerwear, it’s my favorite article of
clothing.

Eclectic taste (her style icons veer from Grace Kelly to Linda Rodin), it’s the book Just Kids by Patti Smith that remains her favourite read. ‘Beautiful and captivating, I read it when I first moved to Los Angeles. After settling in, someone came over to the tiny studio that I was living in at the time and I tried my best to decorate in hopes that it would distract from what a horrible place it was. To my disbelief, she told me, “Wow. This apartment reminds me of Just Kids.” It was really heart-warming to have someone see my effort to create a special place and relate it to something that had been so impactful on me’. Patti Smith, you can’t get cooler than that.

‘I’d change the lack of respect people have for each other. I would change how people acknowledge the differences of surrounding individuals, whether it be regarding religion, orientation, or race. To help them find peace with each other instead of meeting differences with hostility.

Cool, however, is the opposite of Anderson, who, when asked if she could change one thing (about the wider world) replied, ‘I’d change the lack of respect people have for each other. I would change how people acknowledge the differences of surrounding individuals, whether it be regarding religion, orientation, or race. To help them find peace with each other instead of meeting differences with hostility.’ As for herself, ‘self-care has become such a big movement recently and I’m the biggest advocate because the love you have for others really does start with yourself’. Amen to that. We told you she has soul.
