    Inspiration: Gucci's Utopian Fantasy as Seen by Ignasi Monreal

    Inspiration: Gucci's Utopian Fantasy as Seen by Ignasi Monreal

    Gucci Spring/Summer 2018 Collection as seen by Ignasi Monreal

    Inspiring to Winky.....

     Alessandro Michele has taken Gucci in many fantastical directions. 'Utopian Fantasy’ was no exception made in collaboration with artist Ignasi Monreal, his digital paintings take inspiration from painters of the Renaissance and Pre-Raphaelite era. 

    Inspired by:

    The Pre-Raphaelite Brotherhood (later known as the Pre-Raphaelites) was a group of English painters, poets, and critics, founded in 1848 by William Holman Hunt, John Everett Millais and Dante Gabriel Rossetti

    Inspiring.....? Founder of Gucci, his name was Guccio Gucci

     

    Bottom Line: The collection, the creator and the artist who created these digital illustrated works of art  - should know - Winky is moved.  Every piece of this collection should be in Centre Pompidou in Paris or MOMA - NY

    CHALK IT UP TO A STATE OF PRIDE

      states What inspired the new collection? We can only say chalk it up to a state of pride. Forget 50 Shades of Grey, here at Winky&Dutch we are all about our Chalkboard 50 States. Winky&Dutch is very pleased to introduce our most recent addition to our exclusive collection of artwork, The Chalkboard States.  Initially inspired by our obvious pride in making Winky&Dutch products in America, but in addition to that our belief in education.  The expression of the states in chalk is our nod and a thank you to every single educator who strives to empower their students through education.  The diversity and versatility of the combination of our core products when combined with The Fifty States Collection (our largest ever) gives one the ability to make a lifetime of statements on style as well as showing pride in your favorite state.
