    Winky&Dutch TBT Moment: Spring 1997 - Time Out New York was High On The Hamptons


    May 1997 was an interesting pop culture & fashion mix.  Paris was overflowing with "maximalism" and at the same time in NYC, Carolyn Bessette-Kennedy, Kelly Klein, and Gwyneth Paltrow were being hailed as part of fashions new "clean team".  Somehow in all of this,  bib overalls managed to have a fashion moment, and Hanson was at the top of the Billboard charts.  BUT LUCKILY, in May of '97 fashion was given the gift of inspiration, in film form. The Fifth Element.  The Fifth Element was clearly the inspiration for the editorial above, and Winky&Dutch is thrilled that TimeOut NewYork saw us as part of fashions future by placing our Union Jack wristband and the skull and crossbones arm band in the editorial.   While we no longer carry the armbands, we have a few pieces from our archives in the same material.  The Winky&Dutch zipper coin pouches in Union Jack or Burning Flames each only $5.  If skulls, or skull&crossbones are your thing you have to check out our assortment at The Winky&DutchCoStore on shopwinky.com  What goes around comes back around, always!  Have a great Thursday

    #TBT For The Love & Company of Dogs

    It was Summer 1995, Labs were still leading the trend as "the dog to have", and the women who owned them loved Shirley Temple style straw hats and seemingly D.I.Y. box shaped boldly printed vests.  It's TBT time!

    Winky&Dutch understands the love for dogs that only comes from being a dog owner, we feel we understand it better than any company.....excluding In The Company Of Dogs.  Started in 1994 as "A place with gear for dogs and the people they share their lives with."  Perfectly stated, right?
    Winky&Dutch was lucky enough to have 2 placements in their magalog: a charm bracelet with reverse hand painted dogs in the dome charms mixed with assorted bone charms, and a collar adorned with our domes featuring the same hand painted dogs.  Do you like??  Share your feedback with us on Facebook, would you like to see Winky&Dutch pet items and pet themed items in our collections in the future? Talk to us, we want to know!

    A little extra #tbt humor pointed directly at Team Winky&Dutch - our old catalog shows collars as part of our American Made accessories assortment - sounds good so far, until we read the copy, which states, "Collars are designed as a female cutesy accessory."  WHAT?  I don't know about you but we felt there were many men that could have benefited from being collard by their gals with this cutesy accessory! Huge opportunity, huge! Enjoy your Thursday!
