Noah Lee & Taiki and their ultimate top 5 leather pieces
When the subject is Fashion Week, Noah Lee & Taiki Takahashi sure know how to take charge of outfit coordination and attract our lens.
The power couple who manages to dive into the lives of fashion models, DJs & overall great Instagrammers, make a statement in every fit.
We first met them IRL at Milan Fashion Week '19 and since then we've beenlooking forward to hearing more about them & their eye-catching leather combos. But if a face-to-face chat is a no-go ATM, we just had to slide thru their DMs to ask for exclusive snaps & tips.
"We have become more aware of what fashion can be and how powerful it is. It may look glamorous, but it is more than that. We are now more than willing to help people who are struggling with their self-image and confidence. We know we're not that influential, but if we can help one person feel good about themselves, our purpose is achieved", they said on how their passion for the fashion universe changed their lives.
The duo shared that they're already planning to travel to Europe once social distancing is over and that their fave designer rn is Rick Owens with his distinct signature silhouette. Not only that, they have also sent us the ultimate top 5 leather items they love to match now & probably forever. Come find out.
#1: Loewe boots
If your look is missing a statement piece, Noah and Taiki make it pretty clear how a mix of leather boots/pants/belt changes everything. This Loewe piece is a big fave of the duo and of anyone who thinks no leather boot is just a leather boot.
#2: Martine Rose pants
There's no way you can go wrong with bold Martine Rose black leather pants. This gem is a big go-to for Fashion Weeks or any casual Solo Posing In An Alley snapshot.
#3: Rick Owens high heels
Speaking of their fave designer, Rick Owens leather ankle-high boots with a powerful platform heel finishes off their non-gendered outfits right. A big choice for PFW or any stay-at-home tea party 🍵.
#4: Louboutin Kypipouch bag
Better than any Pandora's box, Louboutin's box-like bag called Kypipouch made the cut. This leather piece in bright yellow or classic prints can be carried around on the shoulder or in the hand for any backstage pics.
#5: Maison Margiela Tabi boots
They just had to finish off their leather list with power boots like Maison Margiela. These iconic split-toe boots were inspired by the Japanese tabi sock and have changed the way ppl look at classic leather boots.

"Success means a loving family that we both build together as a team."
