“I could stare at myself all day.”
So jokes Timothy Reed Murphy, after some phone issues have us FaceTiming for our interview. That said, who could blame him? The guy surfs and models, and has the looks for both. Those two things alone made him a great choice to embody the spirit of our new surf-inspired S.C. 59 fragrance in our photo shoot, but Timothy is more than the proverbial pretty face: He also devotes his time to surf therapy, helping both special needs children and wounded veterans get on the water. We asked him about his important work, and how he came to surf in the first place, over FaceTime as he walked from Whole Foods to his new home in Venice Beach.
Here’s what he told us.
Like the ocean itself, Clara Settje contains multitudes. Just peep her Instagram bio: “Rock Climber | Lazy Yogini | Doula | Surfer.” And oh yeah, she models, too, having spent the past 12 years globetrotting for countless campaigns and editorial shoots. This multihyphenate resume made her a perfect pick for our S.C. 59 photo shoot, given how the scent also escapes easy definition—it’s surf-inspired, yes, but in a modern way, with an amber-y finish that evokes the feeling of sun on skin. Clara has that sunkissed look, and it’s one she earned the old-fashioned way: by spending her time riding the waves.
We asked her how she got into surfing, and how she makes time for her varied pursuits. Here’s what she told us.
