    love the first picture the best! she has an attitude

  6. Cotton Socks says:

    i like the hair cut in the first girl.
    takes confidence to have short hair.

  7. Oh my gosh – love, love, LOVE girl #3. The shirt, the pose, everything.

  8. they all looks so happy and sweet

  9. The 1st picture is lovely. Great style.

    mr facehunter, so sad that i couldn’t catch you in barsonic on halloween!
    post up some pics from that night, please?
    and stay in KL for longer next time!

    am i the only one who thinks that the person in pic #4/5 looks quite androgynous?

    Brigadeiro: yes undercuts are pretty hot in the alternative scene. And people dressed like this are visible only in nightspots and select areas, suburbs and malls in KL. You’ll need to know where to look ;)

  14. HanieHyde says:

    should’ve stayed in KL longer then you’d find more rare gems.

  15. garciamadrid says:

    the t-s is very spacial.

  16. Rajmeena says:

    Third from Top is Siccck! Love the colour clash.


  17. I love love love the blue and green! I like the pose with the girl in the shredded shirt looking like she will claw her way up the wall. It irks me that tissue thin shredded shirts cost more. Love the pants on the girl in the first photo-velvet? velour?

  18. I have to agree with Brigadeiro, I have never ever seen anyone dressed anything like this in Malaysia. I have spent quite a lot of time in Kuala Lumpur and it’s all but impossible to imagine women walking around like this…

    the styles are cool nonetheless

  24. Cecylia says:

    I love the girl in white. When I was in KL i barely saw anyone well-dressed. How come they all flock to you? =)

  25. Curiously Me says:

  27. Vee says:

    Hi Facehunter! Love your blog :)

    Is there anymore from this kuala lumpur set? would love to see more. didn’t know KL-ites were this stylish!!

  28. = MARIA says:

    so nice!!! thanks for going places to bring such everyday magnificence!

  29. T. says:

    Love the first and the second look!
    (The first girl scares me a bit with her undercut, but the old-lady-shoes kinda counterbalance that impression.:D )

  30. airhead says:

    holy shitt, i cant believe i missed out on this one! :(
    and i have to agree that there are some who dresses up like that in KL except its practically impossible to find them. they can usually be found dressed up for a night out in town though id say not all would go all out looking like that. its also usually those who have a bit more cash at hand to spare who are more capable of doing so (note the exchange rate of branded goods in the country)

    and i have never, ever seen ANY guy like the one in image 2 dressed up like that before. Not in my lifetime. =

  31. Anonymous says:

    OH airhead, actually there are more than a handful of guys that dresses up like that. You just need to go to the right spots, if its your lifetime, i think youre missing a whole load out.

    and by the look of thier styles i dont really think its “luxury goods” related. Its about putting things together creatively.


    p.s – don’t hate me, love me.

    the girl with white tshirt, classy. love that.
    and all the other girls r brave for wearing what they’re wearing

  33. MONEY CAN’T BUY STYLE – Now i will drink to that

  34. Nouvelle Fag says:

    velvet tapered pants — genius!

  35. xo says:


    If you’re the clubbing kind, the next time you’re in Zouk, try taking the side entrance into Bar Sonic.
    That’s where it’s at.

    And try googling for ‘lapsap’

    I lived in Kuala Lumpur for a while, so it was fun to see the latest styles there! I am a big fan of your site! I was wondering if you would be willing to put my link on your site? hansk!

  37. emmet garage says:


    Kuala Lumpur is not an underated city for fashion…but it is also necessarily the best fashion in south east ASIA. I think i like thailand better

  38. Maria says:

    Nice, I love all these unique yet stylish looking outfits, very avant garde!

  39. In Kuala Lumpur, you just have to go to the right spot to see all of these kind of fashion. I’ve been living in Kuala Lumpur all my life and I’ve seen all types of people wearing this and that. The best places to go to find such styles are Bukit Bintang, Bangsar, and Damansara and preferably after midnight when the parties started.

    Making notes on the second guy from the top… I have everything for this outfit except the amazing waistcoat… if you see him again will you steal it for me? JBX
