After reading articles on hybrid animals and plants that cross-breed due to changes in their natural environment, I became fascinated by ideas of new species and myths that could emerge in the anthropocene. At the same time, I came across a Dazed and Confused interview with Bjork. In this article, she is gloriously dressed in otherworldly plants and flowers - a surreal and electric vision of a biophilic utopia.
With that image in mind, I started designing the Hybrid Print as my own version of a fantastical floral species. Turquoise has always struck me as one of those odd color tones that relate both to the sea and the cyber world. Once I found this beautiful shade of turquoise on a silky soft tencel, it became a stand-out color surrounded by burgundy, golden, and charcoal gray.
