Leather boots with metal studs, price unavailable, Dolce & Gabbana

Katachi, $16, Books Kinokuniya
“Since it was first published in 1999, this book by photographer Takeji Iwamiya is always sold out.

I finally got my own copy recently, and it has been inspiring me daily ever since.” – Rebecca Cecilia Yip, designer
