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.
We are excited to introduce a new edition of commemorative products in our Apple Exclusive series.
Created to celebrate the opening of the Apple Store in Amsterdam, this two-piece collection features bold St. Andrew’s crosses that are found in the Dutch capital city’s coat of arms and “Amsterdammertjes,” the metal posts that mark the sidewalks throughout the city.
These limited-edition products for iPhone 4S and MacBook are available exclusively at the Apple Store, Amsterdam, which opened its doors today.
Met trots presenteren we deze gelimiteerde collectie, exclusief verkrijgbaar bij de Apple winkel in Amsterdam. Geïnspireerd door het wapen van de Nederlandse hoofdstad, rood met zwarte strepen en voorzien van Andreaskruisen. Dezelfde beroemde kruisjes staan ook op de ‘Amsterdammertjes’: de stalen paaltjes die overal in de stad het straatbeeld sieren.
Our Terra Collection weaves natural materials into a range of uncomplicated, casual bags designed for easy packing and lightweight travel. For Spring, we’ve refreshed the collection in two of our favorite perennial neutrals: denim and canvas.
Dark wash denim and rich brown leather bring a classic look to the Terra Collection that complements any style. A surprising quilted orange interior gives a playfulness to the outwardly sophisticated pieces.
Natural canvas and dark gray leather pair together for a simple and modern look. A pop of fluro orange stitching and an interior chambray lining keep the pieces on-trend without being trendy.
The Terra Collection includes our Terra Campus Pack, Terra Tote and Terra Protective Sleeve in 11″, 13″ and 15″ sizes and is available now in our webstore and in limited availability at the Apple Store.

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.
