You Should Know: Cynthia Rowley

by Christie Grimm · August 29, 2016

No trip to Ditch Plains is complete without passing by colorfully chic designer Cynthia Rowley. Perpetually posted up further down the beach (you know, that spot where it starts to get rocky, thus your sensitive feet would never think of setting up camp there), Cynthia's dead giveaway is her impossibly good looking, fashionably wet-suited family (see: little Miss Kit Keenan above). Far pre-dating the cool surfing bandwagon du jour, Cynthia's Montauk shop has been around for some six years, and is still the best place in town to have you sartorially set for everything from the beach to dinner to après hours.

What do you actually do? Beg people to make all the things I dream about.

My motto is: Today is a YES day!

5 Favorite Hamptons Places: The beach, the beach, the beach, the beach, the beach!

The craziest thing I've done out East is: Full moon surfing… don’t do it!

Best kept Hamptons secret? The back roads to Montauk.. I’ll never tell.

If you had one day left out East, what would you do? Spend every second at the beach.

Who should we know? Besides the maître d at Crow’s Nest… the Montauk “originals” Dick Cavett, Julian Schnabel, Peter Beard.
