Placing oki-ni product in a surreal and mythic landscape, Art Director Andrew Stellitano has created an idealised world of crystal blue water, towering grey mountains and swirling white clouds in tribute to the idyllic compositions of Chinese Shan Shui painting.
Trained as a Graphic Designer at Central Saint Martins, Andrew is a multidisciplinary Art Director who is equally at home working with installations, photography or film. To date, his clients have been represented a similarly broad spectrum, including everyone from Aston Martin to The V&A.
For this shoot, Andrew has enlisted the help of still life photographer Sam Hofman. Cultivating a clean, graphic shooting style, Sam has worked with a number of leading magazines including Wallpaper, Pop, Hunger and Another.
HyperGrand makes its official debut with the 01 NATO Watch - A watch that comes with the world’s first graphic printed NATO strap.

Orbitkeys is a stylish key-carrying accessory that has been under development for the past year. The team behind it wanted to change how people interact with their keys.
Although we are all-too-familiar with the “key ring” and grew up using it, it was far from perfect; it was noisy, it was unorganized, it damaged anything that came near it and it was unappealing! Everything the Orbitkey is not! We started trialling with different materials and designs. The initial design involved the use of Chicago screws, but we quickly found these to be unreliable (and unappealing) as they would come loose over time. We then set out to create something of our own — a tool that could withstand the test of time!Kickstarter Page to find more...
After seven months of development, Techné is proud to unveil their Tropic strap, made in nitrile rubber. Inspired by a design from the 1960's, our Tropic strap is made with nitrile rubber. Silicone is normally used for moulding polymer straps but it is not resistant to petroleum, which it can be exposed to in the field of aviation. In comparison, Nitrile rubber is impervious to petroleum and offers superior tear and abrasion resistance when maintained around body temperature.

|On Ian Isaiah: KTZ, Umit Benan, Alexandre Plokhov|
From bedroom jams to club-ready bangers, Ian Isiah's productions have one thing in common: soul. Rhythm runs in the man’s family. His grandmother was a singer, his father plays the steel pan, and Isiah spent his youth honing his chops singing in church. Born and raised in Brooklyn, Isiah is a creative consultant for Hood by Air and a member of NYC’s GHE20 G0TH1K crew. His debut effort, L O V E C H A M P I O N, dropped last week on UNO NYC - home of Mykki Blanco.
|On SZA: Simone Rocha, Dion Lee, Christopher Kane.|
Ella Fitzgerald and Björk might sound like unlikely role models for an artist whose iTunes genre is “glitter trap.” But one listen to SZA’s extraordinary voice and it makes sense. That voice earned the New Jersey native a spot as the first R&B artist (and female) on Kendrick Lamar’s Top Dawg Entertainment label – a signing SZA claims happened organically. She brings the same unpretentious attitude to her music: candid lyrics, heartfelt vocals, and beats that do, in fact, sparkle.
|On Jessy Lanza: J.W. Anderson, Yang Li, Arielle de Pinto.|
You might recognize Hamilton, Ontario’s Jessy Lanza from her recent collaboration with Ikonika: her melismatic vocals appear on "Beach Mode." But don’t pigeonhole her as just a singer. Despite classical training in jazz piano, Lanza prefers to be known as both a songwriter and producer – titles she earned fair and square on her debut album Pull My Hair Back, produced in tandem with Junior Boys' Jeremy Greenspan. Hear her take on club-ready R&B in the mix she edited for us this week.
