In an editorial for SSENSE, Swiss photographer Lukas Wassmann traveled to the Southeast Asian republic of Myanmar. After a visit to Bagan, home to over 2,200 millennium-old Buddhist temples, he moved on to Mandalay, a dense city located in the center of the country. In the thick of Mandalay’s open-air restaurants, tropical flora, chinlone matches, and motorbike traffic, Wassmann took portraits of new friends  in t-shirts and swimwear from Christopher Kane, Givenchy, Off-White, Versace, and Marcelo Burlon County of Milan.
