Welcome to 2015 and Living with Ankan. I will start this new year with some pictures from one of my favourite designers, Paul Smith, and his shop on Abermarle Street in Central London. This is were he mixes interiors (his own and others) with some of his fashion collections. Above some pictures of his fabrics and samples from current collections. I love the Still Life arrangement which looks so easy to put together and that is so hard to do (I know from experience having worked behind the camera with styling for over 30 years!).

Fantastic men´s shoes with sequins that makes you think of sardines! Only Paul Smith would be able to pull this off in this elegant manner!

He also know how to design a shop. This is his way to show off some of his upholstery fabrics. A common way of doing it in magazines etc. Note the background square of yellow!

And finally, a lovely cake. Think carrot cake but replace the carrot with parsnips and add more spices. Cinnamon, ginger, cloves and cardamom. Icing made from soft cheese, cream, icing sugar and cream. Recipe to follow on my food blog - soon! Watch that space!
