Jennifer Lopez is getting into the swim of things. The J.Lo swimsuit collection is expected to hit stores next spring, reports the New York Post. This follows news of a J.Lo fashion line that was announced recently. The manufacturer of the wet wardrobe will be A&H Sportswear, which currently manufacturers swimming apparel for Jones New York, Miracle Suit and Backflips, among others, says the Post. Lopez, who turns 31 next week, appeared on MTV’s “Total Request Live” on Monday, and provided screaming fans a preview of her J.Lo by Jennifer Lopez line. She showed off low-slung jeans and pants, as well as T-shirts, denim jackets and dresses, velour suits and knit tops. That line is due to hit department stores this October. Price points run from $22 (for T-shirts) to $350 (leather jackets). Industry experts have predicted $100 million in wholesale sales alone the first year. The line is actually designed by J.Lo herself, says Andy Hilfiger (brother of designer Tommy Hilfiger), who is credited with engineering the marriage between the pop star/actress and New York’s 7th Avenue.
