Allegiance is a brand based out of Chicago, Illinois with the ideals of promoting a positive and inspirational lifestyle focused on creativity. This brand hits a soft spot here at the Leak because Allegiance was born in April of 2010 by Nina Palomba as a final class project at the Maryland Institute College of Art. Allegiance’s collection consist of graphic tees and skateboard decks, most of the graphic tees are attempts at altering pop culture icons like Pabts Blue Ribbon and the Marilyn Monroe zombie. There is also a philanthropic element to this brand which is refreshing. Every month Allegiance donates a majority of their profits to a selected organization.
