Dear Shaded Viewers,

I met Shoji today at Toraya. Trying to sooth my nerves after receiving a huge and unexpected invoice…I decided to enjoy a piece of green tea cake and hot chocolate. Not sure if comfort food is the answer but it was a pleasant interlude. We discussed the unsung hero/designer Nemeth, it came up because I admired Shoji's jacket and asked who designed it.
