    ANCIENT GREEK PROVERB: A LEOPARD CANNOT CHANGE ITS SPOTS

    ZOOLANDER COLLECTION:
    PROOF THAT YOU NEED NOT CHANGE THE SPOT, ONLY THE COLOR!

    The Zoolander Collection was designed to express our understanding that there are many fur skins/pelts/coats representing the mammals of the animal kingdom, and we are willing to bet if they were given a choice the Zebra and the Giraffe would would have added more and brighter colors than we did.

    #TBT FLASHBACK: IN SEARCH OF SWEET TREATS WINKY&DUTCH FINDS A SWEET PARTNERSHIP INSTEAD!

    TWO IS BETTER THAN ONE
    Is having one piece of candy better than having two? Not in our world.
    In our ongoing quest to keep the Artistic Asset Library and the Archives up to date we discovered the artwork for one of our favorite sweet spots in New York City, DYLAN'S CANDY BAR.  Shortly after their first store opening, WINKY&DUTCH had the pleasure of working with the team on their inspiring new concept.  A shop dedicated to the splendors of candy infused with pop culture and art that would eventually turn into a lifestyle brand.  These are ideas and concepts WINKY&DUTCH understands completely, so to DYLAN'S CANDY BAR we went.
    Now almost 13 years later the newest location of DYLAN'S CANDY BAR is soon to open in the historic Union Square area. True to their commitment to infuse the store with pop culture and art, the store will be located in what was once the Andy Warhol Factory building.
     At one time, WINKY&DUTCH had an office in One Union Square, in the same neighborhood of the new DYLAN'S CANDY BAR.  This new store opening combined with the rediscovery of our collaboration, feels like an awesome opportunity for two New York City brands to collaborate again.  
    Because two is better than one, right?

    #TBT MOMENT: APRIL 5th 2001, CENTRAL ARIZONA via THE ARIZONA REPUBLIC

    It was 2001.  We were labeled as many things.
    We were vintage.  We were groovy.  We were naughty & clever.  We were a bit sassy and sweet.  We were thoughtful but never sad/blue or mean/cruel in humor or tone (even if we wanted to) because our most important assets were and are our artwork, our style and YOU.  These three things separate us from the rest!
     
    The Arizona Republic considered the combo of our artwork, our style and our broad appeal to "Pop & Fresh" worthy, ready viewing in their style section.
    Citing the versatility & freshness our style and artwork brings to accessories otherwise overlooked, simply just by adding our vintage tongue-in-cheek naughty, but G rated nature of our pin-up girls and/or the stark simplicity of a red on white cross.  
    Winky&Dutch has a unique & identifiable style of their own BUT we are here to enhance not block the wearers personal style even if the wearer is fast tracking her way up the corporate ladder on a stair master wearing a purse on her head. Why would we would ever want to block that?  Not in a million years.
    Do you have press, photos or news from the past about Winky&Dutch?  Share it with pr@shopwinky.com we would love to see what you found/have.
