Introducing our recent top hit, the Deep-V Maxi Terno, now in two of our new exclusive prints digitally painted by Alaga at Sining! The deliciously peachy pink one, Banaba Bayabas, featuring the alliterative native trees, Bayabas (Psidium guajava) and Banaba (Lagerstroemia speciosa). And the colour of the year, "Very Peri" Waling-waling Alibangbang; a design that plays on appropriating rhythm, reduplication of words, and floriography, the language of Filipino flora. Featuring the indigenous and endemic Waling-waling (Vanda sanderiana) orchid which means "moth in flight," given by the ethnic tribes of its home in Mindanao; and the native Alibangbang (Bauhinia malabrica) tree which translates to "butterfly" in Ilongo, derived from the butterfly shape of the leaves common to many Bauhinia species.

Each Deep-V Maxi Terno is handcrafted by the VINTA Gallery team in our atelier in the Philippines.
