Yves Saint Lau­rent and Valentino: two de­sign­ers I’ve ad­mired and loved for ever – my ul­ti­mate. Fac­tory Made: Warhol and the Six­ties by Steven Wat­son: Steven is a friend of my fam­ily, so when I moved to New York, in 2000, he gave me this book. I set­tled in the East Vil­lage, where Warhol lived – and that’s where I still live. Ce­cily Brown: a lot of my col­lec­tions have been in­flu­enced by Ce­cily’s prints. She’s be­come a muse. The An­tiq­uity of Nepalese Wood Carv­ing by Mary Slusser and Paul Jett: Nepal is where I was born and grew up, and I’m very at­tached to it. This book is re­ally beau­ti­ful and pairs with the Ti­betan prayer gong above the Ce­cily Brown books. The Ranas of Nepal: the Ranas were the rulers of Nepal years ago, when we had a monar­chy, and my mum’s side of the fam­ily is de­scended from the Rana fam­ily. This book is an in­cred­i­bly beau­ti­ful ac­count of our her­itage. What I re­ally love – and this sounds silly – is Romeo and Juliet. I col­lect copies in dif­fer­ent lan­guages and texts. I’m a big ro­man­tic at heart.
