May 1st back to Paris

Dear Shaded Viewers,

I went straight from the airport to le Marais to meet my friends Graham and Miguel. They leave tomorrow for New York so we decided to lunch at cafe Marianne. Good food , the worst service imaginable. The waitress practically threw it at us. We felt a bit better when Shoji Fujii and Gaspard Yurkievich passed by and explained to us that they are like this with everyone.


I loved Miguel’s Vivienne Westwood shoes and Graham as a blond.

Shoji Fujii and Gaspard Yurkievich, two faces that we missed this year at Hyeres

Julien Bengel sent me a few photos from the exhibition preparations at Hyeres, I’ll send you more of my images later in the week.

This is about how I feel right now.
