Lane 8 - Today posts "Surf's up: Athletic beach gear rides the designer wave.  It seems the same goes for fashion, where designers have been dipping their toes into surfing-inspired apparel for the last two seasons. Michael Kors, Alexander Wang and Cynthia Rowley have each infused their recent runway collections with neoprene materials, neon-colored zippers and other cheeky surfer girl details.  But the trend seems to have hit an all-time high with actual surf apparel and gear hitting stores, items which were once solely reserved for sporting retailers — and which often came in dull, basic monochromatic styles."
