“As you think, so shall you become.”
Blast from the past! When it was Bruce Lee all day every day!
Winky&Dutch likes to think we had a teensy bit to do with his popularity.
It was April 2001. It was spring. It was "Lifestyle Editorial". It was Country Living Magazine. It was the Flea Market Decorating Issue, and today is Throwback Thursday[caption id="attachment_2745" align="aligncenter" width="437"] Country Living April 2001 The Flea Market Decorating Issue.[/caption]
The April 2001 issue was dedicated to Flea Market Decorating (isn't it now called re-purposing?) Under the heading of "Country Classics You Can Buy", with a sub heading of 'Retro" Under the latch hook rug, the cat eye glasses, and a toy plane, there it was, our travel themed charm style bracelet, which at the time was available at AlphabetsNYC.[caption id="attachment_2746" align="aligncenter" width="321"] The Winky&Dutch Charm Bracelet Today[/caption]

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.
TBT LOOK BACK: In 1997, big things were happening. Steve Jobs returned to Apple, Tiger Woods, at 21 became the youngest golfer ever to win the Masters, Madeline Albright became first female Secretary of State, and in NYC, French Brasserie Balthazar opened and would be the hottest reservation in the city to obtain for the next two years. Over at New York Magazine the June 9, 1997 issue featured the best hospitals in NYC, as well as editorial dedicated to the Winky&Dutch lamp, from our home accessories collection. Since the beginning we at Winky&Dutch have been known for the inventive, playful, clever and creative approach to designing our products. This has not changed. We cannot wait for New York Magazine to see us now.[caption id="attachment_2656" align="alignnone" width="283"] In June of 1997, New York Magazine editorialized the Winky&Dutch lamp and acknowledged them for having 'inventive hands" and for 'putting a playful spin on jewelry and home accessories'.
