The collection's aesthetic borrows from costumes commonly worn during the lion dance. Most notably, the lion head on the jersey incorporates extra flap details to enhance a sense of movement. Similarly, the trim loops of the jersey and headband follow costume conventions.
CLOT's signature red combines with black to ground a bicolor palette, and the CLOT dragon is embroidered on the pieces along with two symbols “冠军” (champion) on the shorts — a nod to sharing best wishes to all the competing teams in the tournament.
"The red is representative of CLOT. And the changing of the red colors is kind of like a change over the years — growing as a company and growing with Nike, as well as being excited to be a part of the basketball push in China this year," says Edison Chen, CLOT Creative Director.
