As a painter, illustrator, writer and musician, Clare Rojas has thoughtfully woven an intricate multimedia world. We are proud to introduce a capsule collection with the San Francisco-based artist who has infused a fresh and feminine perspective to signature Incase bags and cases with her colorful animal characters and abstract patterns created just for the collection.
Rojas’ visual artistry encompasses a broad spectrum from modern abstract to delicately detailed figures. Stark backgrounds emphasize carefully rendered geometric patterns, a part of what Rojas calls her current exploration of “domestic abstract interiors”, focusing on patterns, color and composition in simple and reduced forms. Figures and characters, whose narratives are the centerpieces of Rojas’ previous bodies of work, make an appearance in the collection in the form of a colorful and expressive owl. The two perspectives come together harmoniously in the four-piece Incase for Clare Rojas collection, which is comprised of a Campus Pack, Tote Bag, 13″ Protective Sleeve and iPhone Pouch.
Rojas gives a unique voice to her visual art through music. Performing under the pseudonym Peggy Honeywell, her folk-inspired style ranges from easygoing tales of everyday life to meditations on friendship, love and the human spirit. Peggy Honeywell has released four albums, two of which can be found on Galaxia Records out of San Francisco. In addition to the collaborative collection, we are excited to launch a new three-part episode of Room 205 featuring Peggy Honeywell, the first of which debuts in conjunction with the release of the product collection. For the episode, Rojas painted the bold, abstract backdrop against which she performs. The second and third installments of the Peggy Honeywell episode will release on August 13th and 20th.
The release of Incase for Clare Rojas comes on the cusp of Rojas’ new exhibition at Kavi Gupta Gallery in Chicago, which will run from September 15 to October 21 followed by an exhibition at Prism Gallery in Los Angeles.
Incase for Clare Rojas is available now in our webstore with prices ranging from $49.95 to $129.95. Be sure to check back on August 13 and 20 for new installments of Room 205 featuring Peggy Honeywell.
