Despite its rapid rate of success and growth, Saturdays Surf NYC is still perceived differently amongst its consumers. Encompassing the worlds of fashion, coffee, and surfing is, after all, a broad endeavor. Saturdays unveiled the inaugural issue of its magazine last year, in part to shed light on its interests as a brand, and as creative director Colin Tunstall explains, to clarify that an urban surfer’s lifestyle includes a variety of other activities. With the second issue of Saturdays Magazine having released recently, the brand shot a behind-the-scenes video with Tunstall and magazine editor Danny DiMauro to explore the process of creating such a diverse journal. Enjoy the video.

In Last Address, acclaimed filmmaker Ira Sachs (Keep the Lights On, The Delta, Married Life, and the 2005 Sundance Grand Jury Prize winning Forty Shades of Blue), who first moved to the city himself in 1984, uses images of the exteriors of the houses, apartment buildings, and lofts where these and others were living at the time of their deaths to mark the disappearance of a generation. The elegaic film is both a remembrance of that loss, as well as an evocation of the continued presence of their work in our lives and culture.
