TIDAL is a biannual print magazine focusing on fashion, lifestyle, and culture that pairs East Coast sensibilities with a laid-back West Coast vibe. You can turn every page and see something beautiful: fashion that’s approachable, entertaining stories that are fun and inviting, and celebrity profiles that make you feel like you’re getting to know a new friend. Plus there’s a hint of the mystical…’cause that’s how we roll. Current is Tidal’s exclusively online outlet—all the same kinds of awesomeness, just with less page turning.
