Everyone can use a little extra luck on Monday morning, as #MarchMadness begins AND the day before St.Patricks Day. Shown here are two exclusive Winky&Dutch designs from our archives, that speak directly to the luck needed on Monday morning and St. Patricks Day.
WAKING UP WINKY
In early February 2015 Winky&Dutch launched their newest collection of artwork, the Zodiac Constellation Collection. A collection designed to satisfy the desire of stores and consumers for things unique and personally tailored ‘just for them’. This is more than a specialty to Winky&Dutch its their forte. This collection brings life to the infinite possibilities of the starry night sky in the signs of the zodiac. The signs pair back to the Winky&Dutch core collection of accessories, creating something that, at once becomes, personal treasure or keepsake. Winky&Dutch is confident that keeping your eyes on style and being true to your sign, these stars will point you in a fashion forward direction. Meanwhile, somewhere in Italy….(continued below) On February 28th Peter Dundas, the Creative Director Emilio Pucci, presented their Fall 2015 collection. Described as one that, “explores a glistening starry night, celebrating the symbols of astrology and the unforseen powers they behold.” He believed so passionately in the zodiac for his collection he put elements of the zodiac in nearly every ‘look’, from abstract graphic references and dramatic capes, he even went as far as designing personalized evening gowns for his favorite models. Looks & sounds like a ton of dramatics? Maybe, but it proves that great creative minds exist everywhere from European designer brands to American-made and designed accessory brands like Winky&Dutch.
This collection, pulled from our expansive archive, contains some of our favorite vintage pieces that represent true Winky&Dutch style. The 1987 Collection by Winky&Dutch is tied to our history, deeply rooted in designing and creating classic, American-made accessories that speak to and grow with your personal style. Winky&Dutch style can be yours with this unique collection of tac pins, cufflinks, and charms, but due to their true vintage nature, they are in limited quantities. Buy them for yourself or give them as gifts, but get them before they are gone. Shop and share the collection here.
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.

We are excited to announce that ShopWinky.com will debut the New “Shetler Collection” on February 1. We discovered hundreds of vintage Preciosa and Swarovski stones in our storage facility, and decided to pair them with some of our refreshed settings. The Shetler Collection is an ode to the matriarch of the Winky Family, Kathleen Shetler-Globus. Her grace, poise and unconventionally good taste has inspired this collection of rings and medallion necklaces. I look forward to seeing these one-of-a-kind pieces on many of you soon!
