    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
