IN THE SURF: Cynthia Rowley, whose talents extend to being a surf enthusiast, has put her own feminine, yet sporty spin on the standard wetsuit. She has created two limited-edition color-blocked wetsuits that will launch at select J. Crew and Cynthia Rowley stores, as well as online, on Monday. The wetsuits will retail for $210.

“Regarding wetsuits, I always liked the Marilyn Minter quote, ‘Everything’s better when wet,’ injecting some style into sports utility,” said Rowley.
