Jack Spade for Coca-Cola: Celebrating 125 Years of Coca-Cola

Jack Spade has teamed up with the world’s most iconic beverage brand, Coca-Cola, to celebrate its 125th birthday. Marking 125 years since the first Coca-Cola was enjoyed on May 8, 1886, and inspired by the brand’s rich design and advertising heritage, Jack Spade is releasing a limited edition collection of totes, t-shirts, baseball caps, posters and iPhone covers on October 5th.

The new Jack Spade collection takes its design cues from some of Coca-Cola’s most memorable campaign slogans. There is a quintessential Jack Spade tote, the Coal Bag, emblazoned with “It’s The Real Thing”, and produced in Coca-Cola’s classic red and white shading. 

 

Jack Spade – in conjunction with the Colby Poster Printing Company of Los Angeles – has also created a selection of posters (50 per print), replete with tag lines from 1932’s “Ice Cold Sunshine” and 1971’s “I’d Like To Buy The World A Coke”. 

 

A trio of three t-shirts (300 per print) were also produced featuring some of the same iconic slogans and sounds of Coca-Cola.

 

A set of four limited edition tote bag designs (only 150 per print), featuring all American foods such as hot dogs, burgers and pretzels, makes a playful nod to Coca-Cola’s enduring role as the ultimate in refreshment.

 

Delving further back into Coke’s archives, Jack Spade has taken the interlocking letter c’s which originally featured in Coca-Cola merchandise from the 1910s, and repurposed them on a baseball cap, in a style reminiscent of that era. Only 150 caps have been designed and made as part of this limited run.

 

Completing the collection is an iPhone 4 cover, featuring the Coca-Cola logo that we all know and love today, which was first introduced on Coke cans back in 1966. The Harlequin-style, hard shell cover takes the classic logo and sits it next to the equally illustrious Jack Spade logo, including its signature “Jack Spade, Warren Street, New York” tag.

Escape To: Fort Tilden

Used by the military to house artillery until 1974, Fort Tilden‘s abandoned concrete structures are slowly being swallowed up by nature. The beach is the least developed stretch of the Rockaway Peninsula in southern Queens, and an ideal place to bird watch, let the dog off the leash, or just explore.

Escape To: Brennan and Carr

Escape To: The Noguchi Museum

An unlikely refuge from the din of the city, the Noguchi Museum is hidden in plain sight on an industrial block in Long Island City, Queens, across the street from a Costco. Inside, you’ll find a world apart, created under the direction of renowned 20th century Japanese-American artist Isamu Noguchi in 1985, just three years […]

The Vendor Project

New York wouldn’t be New York without street vendors. They’re as vital to the outdoor life of the city as Central Park and jaywalking. When scouting models for our inaugural sunglass collection, we thought: who better than these men who work outside every day? With photographer Jeremy Sachs-Michaels, we captured portraits of the ice cream […]

Now For Then – A Short Film by Mikey DeTemple

When the weather turns, JACK SPADE heads east. East to the tip of Long Island, to towns like Springs and Shelter Island that for decades have been sanctuaries to writers and artists. These are spots to relax and recharge, venues to work on personal projects away from the grind, and places to reinvent yourself. New […]
