Capsule collection - Vintage. 3 x 15 milliliters fountain pen ink in a nice gift box.
The Vinta Vintage Collection takes inspiration from the “Dekada 70s,” or the Philippines during the 70s. This is a very interesting period in Philippine history where we have the convergence of greater political resistance from students as well as the rise of pop culture. At the same time that there is a growing resistance against the Marcos regime, there is also flourishing of art and culture. It is this special moment that we pay homage to in this collection.
Blaze 1970 [Silab] -Blaze 1970 commemorates the “First Quarter Storm,” one of the earliest collective demonstrations led by students against the leadership and administration of President Marcos. This vibrant orange shade reminds us that we all have the fire within us to fight against injustice and demand accountability.
Pilgrim’s Blue 1970 [Peregrino] -In November 1970, Pope Paul VI visited the Philippines. Known as the “Pilgrim Pope,” this color celebrates the deep and longstanding Catholic faith of Filipinos. This beautiful shade of blue is also reminiscent of the iconic habits of the nuns who held the line against the military during People Power I.
Pink Rose 1973 [Binibini] -In 1973, Margie Moran of the Philippines won the Miss Universe pageant held in Athens, Greece, making her the second out of four winners who hail from the Philippines. Considered as beauty pageant powerhouse, pageantry in the Philippines is a source of deep pride and joy.
