 Colourful, zany, bold and bright – these are some of the words to describe Motoguo’s style aesthetic. The brand, founded by Moto Guo and Kinder Eng, was launched in 2015. A year later, it was shortlisted for the LVMH award, becoming the first-ever Malaysian designer brand to achieve this feat. Motoguo offers plaids, checks, tigers, flowers, and every colour imaginable in their designs. Prices start from RM35 for a pin tag, up to over RM1,000 for tops or trousers. You can buy their designs at Cuevolution, The Feathered, and TheRealReal. Alternatively, contact them directly via Instagram or their website.
