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.

Just in time for the holiday season, our new Incase for Andy Warhol Snap Case designs showcase five distinct pieces from the artist’s body of silk screening work, turning your iPhone 4S into a canvas for iconic Warhol imagery.
The 1964 Self Portrait featured in this series was the artist’s second, and utilizes a picture taken in a photo booth as the basis for his signature silkscreen technique. Warhol’s face and persona remain as recognizable today as his work, a rare achievement for even the most famous artists.
A United Press photograph of Easter Sunday goers in Vatican City serves as the foundation for Warhol’s 1963 Crowd silkscreen. What appears to be an imperceptible black and white pattern from afar reveals itself to be a packed mass of people and faces upon closer inspection. In Crowd, Warhol turns the spectators themselves into the spectacle, focusing on the collective power of the crowd.
Warhol’s Cars and Handle with Care – Glass – Thank You, both from 1962, feature one of the artist’s most recognizable pop art innovations: the serial repetition of an everyday image. Both serve as clear examples of Warhol’s ability to reinvent the ordinary, achieved in part by his use of screen printing to repeat images on a single canvas.
In Diamond Dust Shoes (1980), Warhol incorporated crushed glass particles on top of his screen printed images, a technique he employed in a number of works including portraits of famous personalities. In this piece, the faux “diamond dust” enhances the visual impact of the piece while reflecting the style and flash of the late disco era.
The new Warhol Snap Case series in Self Portrait, Crowd, Cars, Handle with Care – Glass – Thank You and Diamond Dust Shoes for iPhone 4S and iPhone 4 is available now for pre-order in our webstore.
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.
