 Z Teo 

Dr. Z Teo, the esteemed doctor and CEO of the Aivee Group, has perfected “athleisure” to a tee. His style aesthetic may by preppy, but he brings it to the modern age by adding active wear pieces from only the top designers and luxury brands. Z can seamlessly match a blazer with sneakers, or joggers with a button-up polo shirt. It also seems he’s passing on his style to his young sons, who are probably two of the best dressed little boys in Manila.
