What Inspired Valentino?

I recently chanced upon Rajo Laurel’s blog on StyleBible.Ph and saw this very interesting entry. Like him I was dumfounded to see that these pieces by THE Valentino (for his 2012 RTW show) looks closely like a Barong Tagalog. For those who don’t know, a Barong is the national costume for men here in the Philippines. Well, if only I could ask him personally, but it Rajo Laurel’s hunch is right then.. WOW. How amazing would that be?

    It could be inspired by the “barong tagalog”. Or else, by the guyabera of Latin America. The two are very much alike! 😀

    Oh wow! I’d love to think that it’s our very own baring tagalog! That’ll be awesome! Hmm now I’m really wondering? 🙂
