Today I’m going to talk about one of the emerging talents from non-other then my home country, Malaysia. Moto Guo was an old acquaintance that I knew back while I was still in Raffles College in Kuala Lumpur, and I’m definitely proud to say now he’s an upcoming talented designer in both Asia and Europe. And most recently He just got back from a showcase in White Milano on his latest men’s wear collection. Moto graduated in 2013 in Kuala Lumpur with his graduation collection that made the headline of local newspaper and fashion industry. “Out Like A Light” was the collection where he aced it with perfection and surprisingly he took inspiration from his childhood story where he was battling obesity at a young age and sleeping disorder -clinomania and sleep paralysis was one of the condition he has to go through while battling his illness. He explore this inspiration through silhouette & shapes, details and techniques in the collection. His collection was a combination of geeky, preppy style which stays true to his personalities a wacko inside but with true talent. The collection was not the usual Savile Row style you’re expecting to see. And his latest collection is definitely a continuation of his boyish and quirky style. “A litho Odd” was showcase in Milan during January, a collection filled with delicate details and couture-techniques.
He took inspiration from the attachment food, the slight and small details on the garments were an creative impulse on food and candies he loves and craves, from caviars to jelly beans. He also combines different fabric to create a subtle sillohuette for his collection.Moto Guo A/W 15 Floating Jellybean Sweatshirt
