SS23 Curated Looks - No.6

SS23 Curated Looks - No.6

We close this season with a more relaxed curated approach, focusing on the subtle details that help this tonal look land big this Summer. Without further ado, please can we have a round of applause for Ed “I’ve been to Australia” White, in Look No.6 from our SS23 Curated Outfits. 

Summer is the perfect time to relax and enjoy the warm weather. This tonal look is ideal for a day out in the sun, and it's easy to put together. It combines relaxed Made in Japan drawstring pants with a cool summer linen Cuban collar shirt & heritage sanders suede loafers. 


First, in this look, we delve into linen & cotton blends with this breathable beauty from our friends at Portuguese Flannel. Perfect for those summer scorchers spent at the seaside or at Icebergs in Sydney. What Sydney, Australia? We get it, Ed; you’ve been to Australia.

They are finished with Mother of Pearl buttons and delicate embroidered details celebrating the natural world. Something to store in the time capsule for future looks.

To keep the look feeling cool and not disjointed, we’ve paired the relaxed oversized shirt with the Easy Olive Buggy Pants from Japan Blue. Nothing fancy here, just loose pants that will keep you cool in the summer weather. They are made from 100% cotton, and that's all you need when temperatures are close to hitting record highs, year on year.

If you’re looking to push the look a little bit further, you can also match this look with the world-famous Linen high wasted trousers from Informale, an ideal match for the Dusty Olive T007s or perhaps the Oyster T007s, both work well. 

Sometimes in life, things just gel. You don’t need to go into a long descriptive sentence of adjectives to describe why this works. Sanders has nailed this loafer. The soft suede in polo snuff is enough to make this look stand out. Something Ed & Sam both can't get enough of and can be worn dressed up with a pair of Informale Linen Trousers or dressed down as seen in the images above and below. Did we mention Ed has been to Australia because, apparently, he has?
