The upcoming spring/summer issue, which drops in May, developed very organically. As I started putting together the story ideas, concepts, contributors, photographers, and layouts, it took on a definite “road movie” type of vibe. One idea flowed into another, one collaboration sparked another. This issue speaks to me more than any other - my soul is embedded deep within.
The underlining theme continues to be style, design and music - bringing that to the readers almost as an “installation” rather than a typical magazine. There will be a revamped look to the issue and website - a modern, cleaner look with a Refueled edge.
Who’s in it? This issue features amazing personalities and creative energy. Cover feature with One Trip Pass mastermind Jay Carroll, a Refueled “exclusive” look at the 2010 fall/winter collection from Alabama Chanin - shot by Joshua Black, filmmaker Jake Davis brings us inside his “Test Shot” series, Coupe magazine’s Bill Douglas talks “Editor X Editor” with me, Cicero DeGuzman Jr. delivers a rad “NYC Surf” style spread, a trip back to “June ‘71” with ohio-based Black Owls, surf photographer Jay Watson and more.
Not to be missed.
