There’s a new way to wear white and pale colors, designer Edwin Ao showed how it’s done with his recent collection of men's casual clothes.

Unstructured sports jacket with grey bands layered over a button down dress shirt and black T’s

“I always like separates that can be worn different ways. The possibilities of mixing them are endless. The clothes were cut loose to give white and pale clothes new proportion and freshness.”

 Short dinner jacket with detachable black cuffs worn with a long shirt and twill pants.

Ao’s mix of unstructured shoulders and generous cuts lend sophisticated nonchalance to his menswear that’s far from dated. His sartorial mix is at once non pretentious and, as he expressed earlier,  “fresh”. Here are my favorite pieces from his recent group show.
