‘Known in the vintage-clothes business as “Bill Hornets,” William Hornets Wilde is one of those English gentlemen whom visitors to London imagine the city must be filled with. It isn’t, of course, which is what makes Mr. Wilde and his shops so special.’

Edward Helmore

The above photograph was taken for Wall Street Journal by an old friend of Hornets, artist Michal Martychowiec. Below a photograph of Michal during his interview for Central Chinese Television.
