Daryl Maat redefines the Filipina aesthetic.

How many times have you held your head in your hands when the dress code read Filipiniana? Well, Daryl Maat's Baro collection is the perfect solution to that—if you dare to leave behind all notions of Maria Clara dressing. Just like how Daoyi Chow and Maxwell Osbourne infused Donna Karan New York with a lifeblood that's young, hip, and fresh, Daryl takes cues from street and sportswear to reshape our ideas of piña, jusi, and even banana.

Take this look for instance. This dress is unmistakably a party dress, yet it's also unmistakably inspired by the Barong Tagalog. Daryl manages to fuse these two ideas to create a garment that is graphic and feminine, fun without losing its gravitas. With a piece this strong, you hardly need to accessorize.

The rest of the collection featured hot pants and bombers, tiered miniskirts and appliquéd bandeaus, wide-legged pants and lace; all in black, beige or white, save for just one look. But that's not the one that caught our attention. It's the closing number: a billowy tiered skirt that looks like a blossoming flower kept Rated GP by the designer's color choice and a matching cropped top that draws the eye to the model's clavicles.
