Modern Filipiniana

June 12 marks the Independence Day for the Philippines and to commemorate this, we wanted to do a playful, summery take on the Filipiniana attire.

The Baro’t Saya, comes from the Tagalong words "barot at saya" or "blouse and skirt," still the basic components of the ensemble. Like it’s masculine counter part, the blouse is traditionally made from pineapple cloth, which is an indigenous textile of the Philippines.

The silhouette of the garment relates to traditional Spanish costume, particularly in the cut of the sleeves, the shawl collar and trailing skirt. For this look, we paired the pinya blouse with a cute woven bottoms from the Museum of Ice Cream collab with Target and patent leather shoes by Zara.
