    TBT: WHEN WINKY GOT SASSY

    It was January 1996 and thanks to the 'grunge' trend, the world of fashion was a drab flannel place.  Other than Betty Rubble becoming a Flintstone Vitamin, there wasn't much to celebrate in the pop culture centric world of fashion.  But then it happened, Winky&Dutch got Sassy. [caption id="attachment_2767" align="aligncenter" width="960"]SASSY MAGAZINE FUN FACTS -Sassy Hired Chloë Sevigny off the street, as an intern credited with discovering her -Editor staff split between Australia & USA -Focus: American ten girls who like indie rock SASSY MAGAZINE FUN FACTS

[caption id="attachment_2765" align="aligncenter" width="960"]Winky&Dutch accessories were shown in a 4 page editorial spread.  Our American Made Accessories were pushed to their fullest potential  - some were even repurposed, as seen here with our link bracelets re-styled as a BELLY BELT on a just slightly older than a teenage girl model.

Changing up our assortment by saying goodbye to products like lamps, makeup mirrors, & button covers, may hurt a bit but this is what allows us to move forward and give a SASSY hello to the future and add newness like tac pins, charms or post earrings. Most importantly Winky&Dutch remembers to keep whats important, our classic accessories are still proudly made in the USA, and just as the slightly hilarious SASSY editorial proves, our accessories and our artwork are timeless and multi functional

    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.

Entertainment Weekly editors  loved the cufflinks, referring to them as 'Kitschy' in the headline, now we prefer to look at them as timeless, and uniquely personalized to ones own taste. Most importantly,  Entertainment Weekly referred to the cufflinks as, 'the way to add style to your life tout de suite" then they bestowed Winky&Dutch with the title, The Accessory Masters! Lucky for us, Winky&Dutch still holds the title of Accessory Master and our gorgeous American Made accessories combined with our exclusive Artistic Asset Library, are STILL the way to add style to your life tout de suite.
