Ancient Buddhism-Inspired Fashion

Chet Lo's Baai-San Capsule Readies for the SS23 Season

— September 21, 2022 — Lifestyle
Asian-American fashion designer Chet Lo introduces the new Baai-San collection for the Spring/Summer 2023 season. It was showcased during London Fashion Week and the influence stems from his childhood. Being raised Buddhist, he remembers visiting temples and studying his background. The peaceful collection honors ancient Buddhist tales, delivering tranquil energy.

The show took place in London's Old Selfridges Hotel as models walked to Calming Godly music that transcended to a techno beat. The designs include spiky knitwear, cutout dresses, hats, and more. Notably, the cutout dress with the large hat is meant to resemble the look of lotus lily pads. This means purity and virtue in Buddhist beliefs and the flower can also be seen across the rest of the collection.
