Jeu de Paume and the Steichen exhibit and dinner with friends

Dear Shaded Viewers,

It is only December 1st but already people are taking off for the holidays. Shoji and I met for lunch at Toraya and then went to see the Steichen exhibit at the Jeu de Paume yesterday. He left for Kyoto and then Tokyo today and will be gone till the end of the month. The Steichen exhibit is quite impressive, wish the prints were larger but none the less I am quite sure that the elegance of the 30’s as seen through the eyes of Steichen will be reflected on catwalks and many collections next season.

Anisha, one of Robb Young’s dearest friends, came from NYC and stopped by London on her way to visit her family in Mumbai. She too will be gone for the rest of the month.
