    FLEET WEEK NEW YORK 2015 & MEMORIAL DAY WEEKEND

    Over Memorial Day Weekend in New York it is impossible for us NOT to mention Fleet Week New York 2015.   Springtime in New York is breathtaking, and combined with Fleet Week, you can smell a little romance in the air.  Imagine a drink recipe:  Take 1 part city that never sleeps, stir in 1 part three day weekend that's been built up to be the kickoff of summer, add 3 dashes of a city full of dating frustrations, and finally blend with 1 cup of an event bringing in thousands of young, single, and well built members of the United States Navy, Marine Corps, and Coast Guard and BOOM, you have a Fleet Week Frenzy. 

     

    Fleet Week New York is the City's celebration of the sea services. This annual event provides an opportunity for the citizens of New York City and the surrounding Tri-State area to meet Sailors, Marines and Coast Guardsmen.  Winky&Dutch extends a warm welcome to the visiting members of the United States Navy, Marine Corps, and Coast Guard!  We also say thank you!  Thank you to every man & woman in service for your commitment and your hard work, our gratitude knows no boundaries!

    It's Bizarre: Winky&Dutch Talks To The Hand This Throwback Thursday Circa 2000-2001

    If a picture says a thousand words , what does this slightly overstuffed picture, from the archives of Winky&Dutch have to say? Something like "Take my hand." or "Hmmm, do I need one more bracelet?" or perhaps, "Ummm someone please help me, I can't move my hand."  or a favorite of ours, "Now where did I put that petal pink thumb ring with the bumble bee artwork?".  In a fashion period where more was more, and less was unheard of, we suspect the entire concept of an "arm party" and possibly even the phrase, 'talk to the hand' started right here, at Winky&Dutch.  
    Bizarre Magazine recently folded, February 2015 being their final issue.  

    Bizarre covered alternative culture through interviews with counterculture personages.  Basically, if someone or something had a cult following, Bizarre reported on them.  

    The many loyal fans, customers and editors who loved Winky&Dutch must have been what drove Bizarre magazine directly to our front doors.  The mainstream was embracing a 'more is more' mentality and predictably, Bizarre magazine would take the less is less approach, fine-tuned monthly on their cover models.   Looking back, the most bizarre thing about this, is not the article on a convicted murderer and his art, or the cover story about man breasts, but the decision to put the non gender specific hand & arm in 2 wristbands, slap it down in front of a camera, and NOT add a single bauble, ring, or bracelet of any style on the naked hand at the top of the page.  After all this time, at Winky&Dutch we still find this....BIZARRE!

    DISCO SHARK GROWS STRONGER EVERYDAY! HELP SAVE SHARKS WITH DISCO SHARK!

    “Disco Shark” is the brainchild of Kevin McHugh, a New York based artist, conservationist, and friend of Team Winky&Dutch. In 2014, McHugh was invited to make a piece for the Coachella Valley Music and Arts Annual Festival. His creation, “Disco Shark”, which was featured in the Yuma Tent,  consisted of fiberglass and over 6,000-mirrored tiles. The piece was a variation on his one-of-a-kind Swarovski-covered sculptures. “Disco Shark” proved to be a success featured on Coachella’s official Instagram as well as many festival goers.
    To celebrate the second year of Disco Shark, McHugh has created an even larger purpose for the piece by starting this conservation campaign. With the help of the Oceana, Shark Team One, Daymond John from ABC's Shark Tank, shark lovers and Winky&Dutch he wants to raise money for endangered species in the ocean, specifically sharks, and the human practices driving sharks to extinction.  
    The campaign will donate 25% of all the proceeds to the international ocean conservation entity, Oceana and also Shark Team One for shark conservation.  

    Winky&Dutch is proud to support Kevin McHugh in this conservation campaign.  Be sure to check out Kevin's Go Fund Me Campaign to make a donation or for further details on how you can help!
