After several preview videos, we can finally give you a detailed look at the collaboration between Incase and Chinatown Soccer Club from New York.
““Through common friends, shared interests and a mutual respect for each others’ brands and beliefs, Incase has joined forces with the Chinatown Soccer Club to create the Incase | CSC Soccer Bag, available today in highly-limited edition. Designed to meet the group’s very particular needs–on the pitch, in the office and all points in between–the Incase | CSC Soccer Bag marries Incase’s signature industrial design aesthetic and device-driven functionality with ergonomic features and soccer-specific storage all in a durable, lightweight design.
The Incase | CSC Soccer Bag is a manifestation of the team’s creative professions and recreational passion for soccer. Combining the essential functions of a sport duffel bag with the best protective elements of an Incase backpack, the Incase | CSC Soccer Bag is a versatile, all-weather bag with exceptional functionality. The Incase | CSC Soccer Bag features durable and lightweight sailcloth construction for strength and tear resistance. A weatherproof padded notebook sleeve keeps essential technology guarded, while a removable shoe bag and waterproof soccer ball compartment secure game essentials. For easy transport, especially for those who commute via bike, the Incase | CSC Soccer Bag features padded shoulder straps and back panel for increased comfort and ergonomic support.””
To celebrate the NYC launch of their collaboration, Incase and the CSC will create a Clubhouse located across the street from the club’s home turf in the Lower East Side. Located at 195 Chrystie Street, the CSC’s temporary home will feature artifacts to showcase the club’s history ranging from photography to posters, jerseys and trophies and present the club’s positive interpretation of soccer and soccer culture. The Clubhouse will be open daily from 12 p.m. to 7 p.m. starting April 29 through May 2.
