Bodywear and board by designer and off-hours surf girl, Cynthia Rowley
When Cynthia Rowley burst onto the fashion scene in the early nineties, she was dubbed by many as the queen of the little black dress, or at least the cocktail dress, a look in which she excels to this day, sometimes colorfully in jewel tones. Now she’s applied that same fervor to designing a surf line for Roxy.
To go with that rainbow surfboard, Rowley resurrected seventies style “old school boy shorts” with white piping, beach headbands, gingham wedges, and towel-friendly shoulder bags in tangerine. My favorites ride with the brown low tide boots, a kind of summer cowboy shit kicker that retail at $180 a pair.
Last week, Rowley held a cocktail party at Barney’s Co-Op with her husband Bill Powers and several visual artists friends. Her plan for the summer? “I”ll be surfing every weekend in Montauk.” She said. But now, she’s personally accessorized her favorite sport. All that’s missing from the beach wardrobe is a good pair of Hudson capris for the post surf bonfire. Visit CynthiaRowleyRoxy.
