We are proud to debut our latest collaboration with Ace Hotel, featuring a capsule collection of travel and technology accessories for Fall 2011. Inspired by classic flight jackets, the five-piece collection includes a Duffel Bag, Shoulder Bag, 15” Sleeve, Portfolio for iPad 2 and Snap Case for iPhone 4.
“Incase knows travel, so they’re a natural partner for us,” says Alex Calderwood, co-founder of Ace Hotel. “This collection is the result of another great tandem effort, integrating Ace’s design sensibility with Incase’s expertise.”
Designed for those who appreciate the virtues of both the digital and the analogue, the Incase for Ace Hotel Collection protects personal technology with classic time-tested materials. Constructed of durable Martexin Original Wax textiles, the items in the collection have a seasoned character designed to age expressively. Oversized zippers, satin-finish seatbelt webbing straps and a pop of orange in the interior complement a look reminiscent of vintage military-issue gear.
Evincing Ace’s rustic urban aesthetic and Incase’s minimalist approach, the collection embodies the marriage of industrial design and reliable functionality.
“Working with Ace Hotel has been a fantastic experience that has allowed us to bring together two distinct points of view in one collection,” says Damon Way, Incase Chief Brand Officer. “We’re excited to align our brands through this collection and bring Incase to unique travel destinations and the culturally progressive individuals that frequent Ace Hotels.”
The Incase for Ace Hotel Collection is exclusive to Ace Hotel New York through September with availability to follow at all Ace Hotel locations and our webstore in October.
To meet the daily travel needs of skateboarders, we bring you the new Paul Rodriguez Signature Collection. Fusing undeniable P-Rod style and skateboard-specific design with our advanced craftsmanship, the collection continues to innovate with a new Duffel Bag and a redesigned Skate Pack to deliver the optimum in durability, protection and functional design.
Paul’s signature Duffel Bag expands on the collection’s sensibility with weather-resistant nylon construction, a spacious main compartment and weather-resistant lined bottom half that incorporates a tool kit panel to house decks and tools while on the go. The Duffel Bag also features a skateboard attachment with adjustable Velcro straps and abrasion-resistant composite exterior for easy and secure deck loading and a dual purpose carryall handle/padded shoulder straps with Velcro closure and stash pocket. The zippered side pocket contains a hideaway leash that instantly transforms the Duffel into a rolling bag when attached to your skateboard.
Also included in the Collection is Paul’s Signature Skate Pack. The practical exterior skateboard attachment with adjustable Velcro straps and abrasion-resistant composite exterior for secure deck loading makes the Skate Pack a must-have. To keep you organized, there’s a dedicated iPhone/iPod pocket with faux-fur lining, reinforced notebook compartment (fits up to 15″ MacBook Pro), dual water bottle pockets with drainage and an extensive array of interior pockets.
Bonus: See the Skate Pack in action in a new video we shot with Paul skating the streets of San Francisco. We tasked our friends Mike Martin and Gabe Morford (of MASH) with the job of documenting Paul during one of his recent visits to SF. Watch how Paul navigates the city’s streets, hills and skate spots.
