Unzipped: Cynthia Rowley

The New York-based designer, who launched a chic new activewear line, unpacks her gym bag.

An activewear line was an inevitable step for Cynthia Rowley.The designer, who recently launched a collection of leggings and track jackets under her namesake label for Spring 2015, was making sporty gear for the surfwear label Roxy back in 2010. She has since built her own range of surf and swim, which makes regular appearances in high fashion editorials. We asked Rowley to share some of the sweat session-approved pieces in her gym bag right now. Here’s what she had to say.
