We are proud to announce our latest project with visionary artist Shepard Fairey. New for Spring, Incase for Shepard Fairey is a capsule collection of accessories for Apple users featuring work from one of the world’s most influential street artists. As a cultural provocateur, social critic and artist, Fairey’s striking illustrations have created some of the most enduring cultural memes in modern times.
The collection includes a range of bags and products for MacBook, iPhone and iPod touch adorned with a selection of bold patterns and illustrations emblematic of peace and harmony. The three designs, Elephant, Ornament and Pattern, turn signature Incase products into mobile works of art imbued with social context and commentary that speak to ideals of both the artist and the user who carries them.
“The artworks that comprise my series for Incase all overtly or sublimely reflect the concept of Peace,” said Fairey. “Peace seems like a simple idea, but evidence of its fragility is far too visible. I believe peace, beauty and harmony are not only related, but intertwined. Visual symbols of peace manifest similarly in many different cultures, transcending language and reminding us of the basic loves and needs we all have in common. Peace is a struggle, but whether the images are ornamental, hopeful, or cautionary, this series promotes harmony.”
“Shepard is a great friend and artist who has been able to rise above convention and communicate subversive ideas to a wide and receptive audience,” stated Damon Way, Incase Chief Brand Officer. “As an artist who navigates freely between the street, fine and commercial art worlds, we admire and are inspired by his work and are excited to provide consumers with accessible and functional Shepard Fairey artistry through the collection.”
Incase for Shepard Fairey is available now in our webstore, select discerning boutiques worldwide and in limited availability at the Apple Store. Be sure to visit the Shepard Fairey project page to learn and see more.
