Last June 19, 2019, we celebrated the Philippines' national hero's birthday: Jose Rizal.
Michel André Contemporary Classics decided then to release a series of barong designs called "THE SARANGGOLA", to commemorate all of his achievements and dreams for our country.
The collection emphasizes on "THE SARANGGOLA" and on how it reaches the sky: which illustrates the freedom, hope, and dreams of the Filipino.
The collection was also inspired by the song, "Saranggola ni Pepe", which was written by Nonoy Gallardo and sung by Celeste Legaspi.
In the song, Pepe is referred to as Jose Rizal.
The lyrics "Matayog ang lipad ng SARANGGOLA ni PEPE" express the nationalistic cry of Pepe (Jose Rizal) for freedom and self-determination in the face of foreign colonialism and domestic oppression.
Now it is the high hope of every Filipino that in its present freedom, we can aim high to pursue happiness according to our heart's desire.
Michel André expresses its gratitude through this "SARANGGOLA" collections.
Thank you, Jose Rizal!
