ABODI loves to create time travelling concepts. ABODI is a combination of tradition and innovation and is deeply inspired by the designer’s Transylvanian roots and classic art inspirations. ABODI’s signature style can be defined as baroque futurism; fusing classic with modern, contemporary references opposed with magic mythologic narratives from Transylvanian family and historic stories.
ABODI’s icon is the TWIN UNISUS, a mystical and powerful creature, a winged unicorn, a hybrid mythological animal. The unicorn symbolises something that is highly desirable but difficult to see, find and obtain, an extremely wild creature, beyond mere mythical imagination, being able to communicate with transcendental powers. The Pegasus is a mythical winged divine horse related to Greek Gods. ABODI’s Twin Unisus is the offspring of a Unicorn and a Pegasus, a super magical creature merging the ultimte beauty and power.
Each collection is a new chapter in the TWIN UNISUS EMPIRE and citizens of ABODI Universe are all part of the story: they can be whoever they want, a neo-romantic adventurer with an addiction to find the great beauty.
