    TODAY THE WINKY&DUTCH #TBT IS BROUGHT TO YOU BY: AUTUMN & WINTER 1990

     THE GLAMOUR AND THE FASHION OF #TBT
    Everybody loves the Glamour of Glamour Magazine.  First things first, can you say, "Holy Giant Shoulderpads"?    No question about it, this was one of our first major fashion magazine editorial credits. It was the post earring worn on the models upper ear in the shot.  We especially love how the model is wearing a mash up of everything from Chanel to Jordache Jeans, to LIFE PRESERVER SIZED SHOULDER PADS!!

    FASHION IS FOR TODAY, BUT AN ICON IS FOREVER
    Winky&Dutch remembers the days of the NYTIMES Sunday Edition -  A full week of reading and exploration.  Here, in an article by Deborah Hofmann, Winky&Dutch is cited for doing their part in, not just holding on to the past but, putting a fresh twist on it, making it relevant. We did this by taking the lenticular, a.k.a. the Winky, a.k.a. the 3-D images we perfected in the 60's, and turned them into anything and everything one could ever want.  Curious as to what a lenticular is?  Stay tuned later today and you will know - you will see -  and could possibly own one.

    Happy #TBT To All, And To All A Good Night Light

    Throwback Thursday to September 24, 1998 - New York Times Late Edition

    Front Page News: The Dow was up 257 points thanks to Alan Greenspan
    Thanks to an article by Marianne Rohrlich the news for Winky&Dutch was a little further back on section F page 4
    There it was, The Winky&Dutch Space Lamp , top left hand corner, of the page most watched by the fashion flock.
    The Space Lamp was part of a story dedicated to night lights and the children who loved them.  Winky&Dutch loved the lamp and found it appropriate for anyone and everyone regardless of age. There were hard hitting quotes from Underwriters Laboratories reminding us, "lamps are not toys", despite the fact there was a photo of a 19 month old little girl kissing a lamp - which we found odd.  Luckily Steve Karchin, owner of Alphaville, made it "our article" with the mention of his childhood covered-wagon lamp and that kids now gravitate towards anything space travel related.  Enter the Space Lamp by Winky&Dutch inspired by a 1950's lunch box.    We were and are incredibly grateful to the New York Times, Marianne Rohrlich and Alphaville, for this amazing opportunity and coverage. We look forward to another one soon!
