(SPOT.ph) People weren't too happy when the official logo of the 2019 Southeast Asian Games-to be hosted by the country from November 29 to December 10-was unveiled in August 2018. But it looks like things are looking up for us in the design department. Designer Francis Libiran recently posted on Instagram to unveil his design for the official parade uniforms of the Philippine team, and it's looking real good.
"Depicting the vibrant colors and meaningful symbols of the Philippine national flag, these designs of the famous barong Tagalog presents a modern take on the Philippines' national garb," cites the post's caption. The barong gets a fresh twist, as it is adorned with the nation's sun on a single shoulder and streaked with bright red and deep blue on its detachable collar.
Curious on how the sketches look like in real life? The actual uniforms were presented by the Philippine Sports Commission during the Team Philippines General Assembly on July 5.
