UK based design duo Eley Kishimoto (Mark Eley and Wakako Kishimoto) have lent their iconic “Flash” print to our signature protective products. The Incase 13″ MacBook Pro Sleeve, iPad Sleeve and the Slider Case for iPhone 4 have been treated with the bold graphic, representing the perfect balance between creative flair and simple execution.
“Being an avid user of Incase accessories, I found their products to be the perfect platform to express our creative ideas,” said Mark Eley, Eley Kishimoto founder. “We have manipulated a variety of surfaces and materials in the past, from concrete to ceramics to motor vehicles. With the Incase collaboration, it was an opportunity to communicate the quality and integrity of both brands’ approach to design, collaboration and product.”
From a partnership forged in the early 90s, Eley Kishimoto quickly gained a reputation for incisive and intelligent print design. Their creations have been displayed on the runways of the world through their work with Louis Vuitton, Marc Jacobs, Alexander McQueen, Alber Elbaz and Jil Sander, among others. Although they primarily work in fashion, they have also collaborated with partners to offer a wide range of footwear and accessories, as well as wallpaper, furniture, fabrics and more.
The Incase | Eley Kishimoto collection is our latest collaborative project within the fashion world, following previous co-branded releases with Paris fashion boutique colette featuring art by Gareth Pugh and Japanese menswear brand uniform experiment.
“Technology and fashion are almost inseparable these days, and we are playing a key role in this convergence,” said Damon Way, Incase Chief Brand Officer. “Eley Kishimoto has a strong visual identity and positioning which I respect and admire on many levels and the partnership brings a fresh perspective that people can relate to.”
The Incase | Eley Kishimoto products are part of a capsule collection of accessories for Apple device users with an appreciation of fashion and technology. The collection will officially launch at London Fashion Week and London Design Festival 2010.
