NEW! Blurred Blossom Cool Racerback and Concord Grape Apres Practice Anorak and More

New Cool Racerback in the Blurred Blossom print. Yay! A lot of people are finding the Daily Tank doesn't fit them well.

New Apres Practice Anorak. Ok, I didn't love the style of this jacket much initially but I think it works much better in an offbeat color. I'll have to give this another look.


Photo of the new Run: Wild Half Zip shown with the Flash CRB underneath to play off the zipper accents. This top looks great paird with the white Yoga Camp crops.

Cute combo - Fossil/Blurred blossom No Limit tank and white Yoga Camp crops.

Fossil Blurred Blossom Run: Wild Tech SS top. It's pulling across her back but I think she has very wide shoulders.

Flash Extra Long Cool Racerback

A nice featured in the mens line that should be brought over to ours - a loop in the pockets for your keys. My husband has some tech shirts that have a loop in the little pocket too. He attaches the little gym key to this sometimes.

Once upon a time lulu put prints on their silverescent knit tech tops. I wish they'd do that again. All these photos are from 2009, the year I (and quite a few others) consider the zenith of lulu design.

Breathe Tech
I wish lulu would come out with a long sleeve silverescent top like this again. It would be perfect for when the weather was a tad too warm for a Swiftly LS.

Ooh anorak!! Still too $$$ for what it is, but I agree it's so much better in an offbeat color. Now if only they'd bring out concord grape ebb & flows!

I was just thinking the other day how much I miss that era of lululemon. Too bad I was a broke student and could barely buy anything at that time, I'd LOVE for them to bring back some of these classy designs instead of the tacky stuff that's 3/4 of the store now

Wow those older tanks are so pretty. I would wear them as streetwear! Agreed that I would also love to see designs like that again. I do find myself fairly bored with Lulu lately...

I'm bored with lulu too but I find the earlier designs to be too old for me (32). And newer designs are too young. Ugh can't please everyone! They should have more variety at any rate considering everyone from pre teens to 70 year olds wear lulu!

I love the higher neck of the race tech! No one is doing that these days.

I think the designs are outdated and look like Athleta or something generic... Def like the direction lulu is taking now. I do agree that the styles seem to be repetitive at times... Just changing colors is all I've been seeing latley but potentially updating these previouse looks ... Making them more modern and relevant would be a nice addition as well as introducing new styles.

Thanks for the image of the Circuit Tech--- I've had that top for years but it was before I became obsessive about Lulu so I never knew what it was called. I wish Lulu would put out more in silverescent--- its an awesome fabric for hot yoga in addition to running (what I usually see it marketed for).

Which blue purple crops are those paired with the wild half zip?

Blurred Blossoms CRB??? For true?!?! *SQUEE*

I actually bought a long sleeve Swiftly's the other day too large intentionally for running in the hotter weather. We will see how it goes.

I completely agree with anon 8:36. Those older designs look like something from Athleta. I would not look twice at those prints. I actually was a little surprised to read they were from as recently as 2009. That being said, maybe digging back into the style vault for at least some inspiration may help break the style monotony.

Anon 1034pm: The crops looks like the Pigment Blue Wunder Unders that came out 2 months ago.

I also agree that the designs which I also was surprised were only from 2009.... look very outdated. I would not consider any of them.

Julia said...

The prints look out of date, but not the cuts of the tops. I would buy them in a solid, darkish color.

Oh, 2009... not so long ago. I had a few of those printed Race Techs, but they've long since gone to the Goodwill. The one item that I still have is the Circuit Tech (first picture). I LOVED (and still love) that design! Mine is white w/ silverescent and the color "alarming" was used for the neck inlay.

Did the flash deep breath tank come out already with the first run of flash items (back with wild lime) or is that still on its way? I remember seeing a teaser photo of it but can't remember if it came out.

Prints are "controversial", unlike solids. It's love 'em or hate 'em proposition. I'll work prints for streetwear, but for running I think it can make you look like you're trying too hard. That tropical print might look perfectly at home on an ocean bluff in Cali, but it seems fussy on the west side greenway in NYC.

LL needs to carry a bigger range of fabric weights year round. I love my Silver Bullet LS for days when it's a little too warm for a Swiftly. I'm excited for the Run Wild SS, it looks like the same fabric.

Glad to see I did not miss anything interesting before I became a lulu fan in late 2010.
I think those tank/tops pictured above have too much coverage, both on the chest and at the bottom. I so much prefer today designs and vibrant colours.

2009 RIP. Thank you for the printed race and track techs.

nice to see how lulu has gone way ahead with style, colors and technology. cannot wait until summer line comes out. ..

I think that the prints look outdated as well- I just think the newer items look more contemporary. That being said, I probably won't next year :) My mother-in-law likes to shop year round for xmas and in february she asked if she could get me a few lulu items- I said no because it will probably be old news to me by then. I have the blue floral race tank and its beautiful, but I do consider it "old lulu" and I don't wear it as often as my newer items.

I cant believe the track tech came out in 2009 not 1999. Yikes.

True, prints can be love them or hate them but it would nice if lulu added a complementing color panel (not just black or gray) every now and then to their tech tops, like in the Circuit Tech. Also, I would think people would like tech tops with some of lulu's contemporary prints on them. I sold my Circuit Tech because the front design gave the illusion of droopy boobs. Now that I am running I wish I had hung on to it. The Track Tech is too short. So glad they've gone to longer tops.
