EMERGING… Hattie Stewart
London’s Hattie Stewart, an emerging illustrator whose busy, colourific doodles landed her commissions for Marc Jacobs, Diesel and Adidas, will take part in a group exhibition at Cologne’s Able and Baker gallery from Friday. Wonderland sat down with Hattie to discuss a recent project for House of Holland’s fall collection – in return, she re-worked […]
WONDERKIND: William Eckersley’s Dark City
For such a closed sardine tin of a city, London has an uncanny knack of looking lonely, especially at night: its cobbled passageways uninhabited, acidic and po-faced. That is, according to William Eckersley’s newest volume of photographic portraiture, Dark City. For a number of years, Eckersley roamed the area’s streets in search of naturally-occurring scenes […]
WONDERKIND: Aurora Ozma
Aurora Ozma, self-proclaimed couturier, milliner and surrealist, has certainly turned a few feather-encrusted skull caps since being whipped up by prestigious London-based furriers Hockley at the tender age of 15.

The first time music video directors Daniels met, they despised each other. So much so, that after being pitted together in classes at summer school, Daniel Kwan ended up throwing a bowl of salad over his prospective partner, Scheinert. “He smelt like vomit for the rest of the day,” Kwan reminisces fondly, adding, “we eventually […]
Wonderkind: LOUISE POMEROY
Shocking, sinister, darkly humourous and uniquely arresting, illustrator Louise Pomeroy’s work draws in a broad range of influences – from obscure YouTube clips and animal portraiture, to the work of American avant-garde sculpture Shary Boyle and forgotten crime comics.
Wonderkind: FLAMINIA SACCUCCI
Meshing tyre print with flora, harsh latex with wear-ability and dark colours with bright, Rome-born designer Flaminia Saccacci has certainly pricked a few ears since her award-winning graduation show at Central Saint Martins in May. Whipped-up soon after by Givenchy, we spoke to her just two weeks into the challenging new role.
