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?
