Our Pilita Corrales bootleg fan version hoodie inspired off her 'Philippine Love Songs' compilation album. We also wanted to create this garment after reading "Filipino Folk Foundry" by Hardworking Goodlooking and contribute to championing the research they have done regarding Filipino typography and script research.
We stumbled upon this graphic visiting a music museum in Cebu, Philippines, Jose R. Gullas Halad Museum; a museum that pays tribute to the musical heritage of Cebu, Philippines.
We hope this hoodie helps spread not only contemporary Filipino graphic aesthetic but also tropical graphic aesthetics.
