The Gardan Barong cut is a new interpretation of the 1970’s redesign created by Pierre Cardin for the infamous dictator, Ferdinand Marcos. It trickled down to street fashion very quickly and was known as the Gardan cut (“Cardin” but with a Filipino accent). It features a fully open covered button placket up front (with a coconut wood visible top button), shoulder yoke and shaping darts in the back that open up to double back vents. Slim cut and easy to wear, this modern classic is always flattering.
This version of the Gardan is made of 100% linen, machine embroidered on the front, sleeves, and the back, in house by Josefina and Maggie. Each Gardan is handcrafted by Lita and the VINTA Gallery team in our atelier in the Philippines.
