This is where our journey begins. It begins with curiosity and self discovery. The more we dig, the more we realize that OUR HERITAGE IS ART.

THE PROLOGUE is the first installment of the collective journey between bago and its community. Each bago episode (or collection) acts as a vignette telling the story of the community’s upbringing as Filipino/a/x Americans through the lens of fashion and design. Many years into the future, one may come across objects designed by bago. With enough of them in hand, they may piece together the story of our journey.

The foundational piece for Filipino American luxury streetwear, the Heritage Tee in bago’s signature oversized silhouette boldly frames Binakol textile handwoven by indigenous communities in the Philippines.

The oversized tee is custom dyed in bago’s “buko” off-white heavyweight rib, milled locally in Los Angeles. The texture of the fabric is a reference to a blank art canvas.

The box logo, located at the center chest, is embroidered in “bahay” brown and the signature archival code is embroidered on the sleeve to act as a physical time stamp of our journey.
