What makes you wild?

"Diving through waves, driving through deserts, freewheeling down hills, leaping into ponds. I love wild swimming in Kenwood Ladies’ Pond on Hampstead Heath. There’s nothing more exhilarating than jumping into cold fresh water on a hot summer’s day. And if I want to be really wild I’ll go out dancing until dawn. Spain is the best place to do this, as they’re not at all ageist. I had an amazing time celebrating my best friend’s 50th dancing to Masters at Work and Fat Freddy’s Drop at the Sónar festival in Barcelona last June. I can’t wait to go back and do it all again."

Clemmie Fraser (nee Hambro)

started out as a freelance travel writer for Tatler, Country Life, The Evening Standard and Vanity Fair, before having too many children and converting to writing about gardening for The Lady and Gardenista. She lives between London and Gloucestershire with her husband, four children and a weird number of pets.

What makes you wild?

"I think I have become horribly un-wild since I had children, since being wild on any sort of regular basis seems so exhausting. But horse riding makes me feel wild. I ride all the time and it gives me a sense of space and freedom and possibility that I simply could not live without."

Michalis Christodoulou

is a London-based fashion artist who creates stylish hand-drawn images for an extensive client list including Christian Dior Couture, D&G Beauty, Christie’s, Jean Paul Gaultier and Chanel Joaillerie.

What makes you wild?

"Creatively inspiring things such as the latest YSL looks in Cannes and the Met Gala, my passionate character and incessant drive to always be better, and my hair, which drives me and others wild on a daily basis!"

Richard Williams

What makes you wild?

"Wild with joy: the sound of a rookery at dusk. Wild with rage: private affluence and public squalor."
