With each installment of Curated by Arkitip, we create a video to provide viewers a look into the inspiration behind the artistry. Directed by Felipe Lima, the André video is a slight departure from our previous artist features. Rather than use words, André has chosen to tour us through a typical day in Paris and let the city that inspires him speak for itself.
The visuals are complemented by a passage from Le Paysan de Paris (Paris Peasant) by Louis Aragon, one of André’s favorite authors, read by actress and singer Adele Jacques. The accompanying music, an original arrangement of Serge Gainsbourg’s “L’alcool”, is performed by Matthew Banks and also draws from André’s tastes.
Celebrating the city that elevated André’s graffiti to cult status in the creative world, the fifth installment of Curated by Arkitip features the artist’s distinctive “Mr. A” stick figure character. Once seen everywhere from city walls to high fashion magazines and collaborations, Mr. A appears on the signature Incase 15″ Sleeve and Slider Case alongside André’s interpretation of the French tricolour.
The Paris-themed André products for Curated by Arkitip are timed to release in parallel with the opening of the first Apple retail location in France and will be available on opening day at the Apple Store, Carrousel du Louvre adjacent to the renowned art museum in Paris.
“André embodies the creative spirit and vibrancy of Paris, so it was only natural to introduce his contribution to Curated by Arkitip as Apple opens its first retail store in France,” said Damon Way, Incase Chief Brand Officer. “We are excited to do this with André to celebrate his artistic legacy and Paris, a city that artists from all walks of life continue to draw inspiration from.”
The André Slider for iPhone 3GS / iPhone 3G features the Parisian artist’s take on the French tricolour.
Curated by Arkitip enters its fifth installment with products featuring the artistry of acclaimed Paris-based graffiti artist André. In the late 1980s, André’s signature “Mr. A” stick figure character became a cult Parisian symbol of the creative world, seen everywhere from city walls to high fashion magazines and collaborations.
The Andre 15″ Sleeve pays homage to the artist-turned-entrepreneur’s lasting legacy, featuring custom co-branded zipper pulls with the distinctive “Mr. A” character that once proliferated the streets of Paris.
