Allogamy envisions a social structure in which many communities maintain their unique identity within a broader culture and cross-pollinate to regenerate a better future.

Allogamy touches many different aspects of the visual culture; shards of glass, reflective surfaces, sand, crusted fruit all become a sensory stimulus. As the mirroring self-transitions through channels of life, an alternative interactive identity keeps arising.

Allogamy highlights the diversity that affords the ability to cross-pollinate ideas, materials, behaviors, aesthetics, and language from one typology to the next, from one scale to another, from one discipline to another.

Allogamy’s hybridity and creative integration are designed for building an ultra- disciplinary experience of a garment with a global vision.

Allogamy is an impossible juxtaposition of cultures, beings, and objects. It’s the moment, the blur, the hapa, the half-breed – erasing borders, combining forces, re- thinking our mission on the planet.

Allogamy was created by cross-breeding regenerated marine plastic waste with reflective textiles, brown tweeds, metallic faux leather, and laser cut foil jerseys. A marriage between vivid textures, and reforming classic shapes and silhouettes, making them relatable, and gender-neutral.

Allogamy encloses rawness. Raw is all that is not conservative. Raw is essential thinking. Raw is the basics of life. Raw is not concealing things but exposing them. Raw is saying the truth.

Bending the categories of clothing to transmute its forms and proportions; to cross-pollinate onto another gender, especially on one with a different mindset.

We are fluid, we are hybrid, we are multiverse. We are a set of possibilities comprising everything that exists. We are visible but simultaneously invisible, but also liquid. We are multi-, but also one.

It fans out a multiple choice of social and cultural cues with the state of flux as the source of both strength and vulnerability.

The designs aim to tell a story of transformation through the creation of “hybrid” characters, which combines elements of futurism, urbanism, and Indigenous culture.

The inspiration for allogamy comes from the shaping of contemporary society as hybrid and liquid. It stopped dictating any dominant style to follow and started ingesting diversity; instead of homogenous identities.

Blending heightened awareness of self and our relationship with nature to re-think textural collages. These fantastical creations incorporate unexpected elements and vivid palettes, all of which combine to cast a spell of Neo emergence.

Reflects the coexistence of extravagant bursts of nature that spring out of neglected areas like trash cans and shuttered storefronts, appearing to reclaim their urban surroundings; the essence of inclusion and diversity.

At the other end of the spectrum, it narrates a story of wild, freeform designs that mimic the organic and uninhibited growth found in nature. Not overly primped or perfect, these designs call to mind a post-apocalyptic aesthetic where nature reigns.

Amidst the identity crisis, and the flux of a radical reset; Bloni presents an uprising parallel reality to highlight the possibility of altering anatomy. Allogamy is a glimpse of another world where cross-pollination is a survival instinct practiced to thrive and create hybrid identities.

A reimagined community with an aesthetic vision of a hybrid culture aligned with the concepts of transition and resilience. Hybrid cultural identity is created as time progresses, in part based on contingency.
