Steppy Releases the Second Special Issue “BEYOND”
Talking “desires” as clues, it tells stories about people and things constantly surpassing themselves and go beyond.

We interviewed Hajime Sorayama for our second special issue “BEYOND”, and selected his famous artwork “Marilyn Monroe” as cover. 




The special issue focuses on a theme of “Beyond”. Talking “desires” as clues, it tells stories about people and things constantly surpassing themselves and go beyond. Hajime Sorayama’s straightforward personality exposed explicitly in the interview, and many of his opinions refreshed my views on “trend cooperation”, “art toy”, and “painting craftsmanship”. His most profound sentence is that, he believes “food cravings” and “sexual desires” are the purest desires of mankind.



The former creative director of Colette, Sarah Andelman, is another important guest in this special issue. She will be sharing her life and thoughts of the “Post-Colette” era exclusively in this issue.


In addition, stories of New York casual fashion Saturdays NYC, Japanese outdoor giant Snow Peak, urban function F/CE., American silverware North Works and Bill Wall Leather, retro furniture Journal Standard Furniture, military uniform Nigel Cabourn, blue dyed fabric KUON, exquisite footwear Foot the Coacher and other brands’ will be all included in this issue of “BEYOND”.




We hided “DESIRE” as a big clue in our editors’ articles, including the desires of the city, desires for emotions, and desires to purchase. In the DESIRE column, we try to overthrow the "low desire phenomenon of Japanese society" from the perspective of "automatic vending machines”, “convenience stores”, “the new generation of Japanese fashion trends”, and “the continuous exploration of fabric materials".





In “Manhattan Guide” and “Tokyo Guide”, we set foot in Manhattan, New York, and Tokyo Meguro districts to explore the desires in the back of the city, using the form of travel notes.


In “Over The Rainbow” column, we used colors to analyze emotions, for each color is a confession to what people feel emotionally.




We provide “material desire” to readers who like to pursue exquisite quality in work, home, outdoor, and travel for better living satisfactions.





In the new era of the media, many things have become "burn after read". We Steppy hope that everyone can immerse into each word of “BEYOND”, just as the end of the issue indicates: DO NOT BRUN IT AFTER READING.
