The ultimate blog for Lululemon Athletica fans. Photos, reviews, and news of the latest lulu.
What the heck? Thanks for the laugh!
Seriously? These designers must be out of their minds.
They really need to start random drug testing at lulu.
lulu's new products have been really out there.....
Well, they definitely "a muse me".
Loot city is right....OMG these are horrible!
You would have to pay me to wear this hideous drapes.
April fool's in may? You have to be effing kidding me! BAHAHAHAHA they a muse for sure! The price tag better say "we will give you a $100 gift card for getting this heinous pants."
Yessss these are EXACTLY what I need for my Genie in a Bottle costume!!
WOW. Just, wow. Now I'd like to see these paired with the Enlightened pullover. Between those 2 pieces you could have new lulu curtains for your bedroom (to match your lulu shower curtain, of course)!
Oh No! These are weightlifting pants for the men, correct? :)
Just saw these on another site. I was like, wtf? Looks like something MC Hammer wore back in the 80s!! lol Too funny.
These are really on-trend. I'm going to get them in every color.Bwahahahahahahaha! I'm kidding. Thanks for the laughs, lulu!
Did anyone notice that the enlightenment pullover in pink sold out on the Canadian side of the website? Some people must like the weird designs…not for me
But will those pants come in flash? How about flash light? Or heathered flash?I seriously give up on Lulu.
Haha, @ Ocean...you are Lululemon's Muse and they've created these for you!I hope you make 6 fgures so you can buy one in every colour!! LOL!!;-)
@ Ocean - I love that the lulu "muse" is chiming in. Keep it coming!
Yesterday, while my husband & I were looking at the lens' Lulu, a male educator commented that it's too bad that Lulu hasn't made Luon tops for men. I almost said that maybe @River doesn't like Luon....On a different note, what is up with those "A Muse" pants? I throughout it was a joke, especially because of the name they've given those hideous things.
Is it really weird that I'm praying they get to a good price in loot so I can cut the bottom off and make a skirt?
What a waste of fabric. Perhaps there are tack marks on the sides so we can cut it to the length we want and end up with a skirt.
Wow ! Lulu design team must be on drugs these days !!!
I'm gonna wait for these to be $10 in Loot, then cut the bottom off to make a pocketed skirt. :P
where have all the scubas gone. i remember when it used to come out with so many colors.....there's nothing on their website that i actually want
Bad, bad, bad lulu. Maybe the new shopping bags have it right. Run lulu, run! Away from these awkward designs you have lately! I am getting really worried. It is like lulu lab had a takeover and is keeping all the regular stuff hostage!
Well when they go into loot for $29 I would buy them and have them made into a maxi skirt ;)
Are these the pants that can be pulled up and worn as a dress? I thought I saw something on the lulu facebook page. A cute strapless bubble hem dress would be fun for summer. But marketing them as pants seems pretty silly.
STOP! Hammer time...
Those are hideous!!!Anyone notice that the new Deep Breath tank in black made it onto the US site already?
Correction maybe not "new" for the Deep Breath tank - maybe just restocked.
Can you imagine all of the great SNL skits that could be made with all of this LLL crap? Oh my gosh... That would be a funny show!!
Athleta has something similar on their website too - is everyone sharing bad designs together or what???
WTH! What's with these items? First the Drishti pants, now the Enlightenment Pullovers. I tried both items and both totally swallowed up my petite size 8 frame. I felt like I was swathed in too much shapeless cloth. Did the original design team go on vacation or something?
I'll start off saying I will never wear this style of pants. I think we are forgetting that Lululemon is rooted in yoga wear and yoga started in India and this harem style is exactly what yogis wear in India. The purists of yoga internationally will absolutely buy these and although they have zero mass appeal they are certainly perfect for a small group.Everyone keeps complaining about this style but I'm sure Lululemon doesn't produce the same amount as they do for more popular items. And they are not keeping something more stylish from you in lieu of these pants so don't buy them if you don't like them and laugh when they go to loot because we all know they will but just don't forget why Lululemon started and let those hardcore yogis have a few pants they can love too.
I kinda love these : )
no really. who are these pants for????
One would definitely get pulled aside by TSA for not so random check if wearing these while traveling.
For those of you, who have travelled throughout India, you certainly saw MEN wearing pants like this one, for everyday wear. I never saw a woman, or maybe it wasn't that obvious because of the dress they wear on top. But I did see men with similar pants.I could never wear them though.
i'm starting to wonder if there's some sort of psychological experiment going on here...lulu knows it has addicts (us) and they're trying to exam the effects of shopping addiction in two ways: 1)giving us only fugly ass pieces, keeping the good stuff from us, and seeing if the addiction is strong enough to convince us to buy it even though we hate it (or rather, to convince ourselves that we actually LIKE it, when lulu KNOWS it's fugly) and 2)giving us only 1 single cute color (flash) in endless variations (which all really look the same) and seeing if we will keep buying the same damn color over and over if they keep renaming it (but not even really trying hard at renaming)this is definitely not real. we're part of some psych student's dissertation, i swear.
LLA where did you see these? I LOVE them and will order in every color. No--not kidding.Thanks!
Agree with that men would only be wearing these in India but in north America there are not the sameCultural obligations for women's dress as in India. I won't be buying these none the less.
@anons 9:52am and 1:06pmWonder if the 'sold out' items on the CDN side are another marketing trick................
That is exactly what I want....the crotch of my pants dragging on the floor! ARE THEY SERIOUS??? REALLY??2LEGIT2QUIT!!!!Has anyone seen the In Living Color (old, old show w/ Wayans bros) skit where Tommy Davidson (I think that's his name) imitates MC Hammer and his pants swallow him whole. That's the design inspiration here!
Has anyone seen my Parasail? I was planning on parasailing over the Gulf of Mexico this weekend but someone took my sail =(
Must accessorize correctly - wear it with the new turban. All I need is a short vest and a magic carpet....
Ok I'm relatively new to this LLA I've developed and I have to ask... have people always been this unhappy with what lulu has been rolling out, whether its colors or designs that people wanted but they wouldn't release at different times in the year? Or is this a recent issue? If so, I definitely picked the wrong time to start buying lulu!
I love wunder unders, cool racer backs, deep breathe bra, run ultra shorts 2, scoop tanks and scuba hoodies - also groove shorts! I'm never upset with those particular products ever. (deep breathe and run ultras are new to this list for me!) I think the more edgy trendy wanna be fashionista workout trend is where I don't think I jive all the way with lulu- but i'm happy if i can get the above mentioned in all kinds of fun colors! (if they aren't bleeding colors lol)
The Lab had a similar design recently. These actually look super comfy, but I think they probably would only look wearable on about 2% of the population, if that. Let's see how much they are when they hit WMTM. Anybody watch the show Girls? These look very Jessa to me. And to the above commenter, no, the addicts are usually happier about Lulu designs. When something comes out in a non-neon, non-blue green I will start buying again. Hear that Lulu? An actual green.
I guess these are good if you're really really concerned about camel toe....
@MELR - LMAO. i think you're right...these are for when even the gusset doesn't work..
I don't think these actually exist. I think Lulu just knows where LLA's buttons are and they like to push them.BTW- camel toe! HA!
Kinda look like an oversized pillow case with holes cut out for the feet to go through. Spongebob pants!!!In regards to the comments about this style expressly designed for hardcore yogis, (I believe you are refering to "Dhoti"), I'm just trying to figure out how to have my legs behind my head in this pants. A bit messy, I think.
@ anon 1:53The answer is yes. People on this blog are always pissed off at lululemon designs and knowing they are going to get super defensive over this i just encourage you to read back on ANY other post and you'll read the same old bitching over a brand they still buy anyway.After being part of lululemon since pretty much the beginning I can tell you that we don't make clothes just because people on this blog like or dislike them, and beleive me, there is reciprocal mocking.
WOW ANON 3;19 -- classy comments -- I bet you are the same smarky EDUCATOR who says "Well what have you been doing to your Groove pants to cause the pilling" or "Can you send me a photo to the GEC to see if the PP or Flash or Indigo REALLY bled all over" or "Why are you returning so much online stuff to the store, hmmpph" Insert Eye Roll -- I think if you really are a lulu employee you should be a little more gracious to the customers that pay your paycheck AND cause the stock to go up
Kristin, I have that on an old VHS tape here at my house somewhere! I loved that show when I was a teen - that skit is hilarious!Here it is on YouTube: http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=2tbzVjkkcsg
WoW Anon 3:19 confirms a lot of what I already guessed about the attitude of the company. . .
Was just flipping through the Athleta catalogue and they have something somewhat similar: Criss Cross Applesauce Skort (http://athleta.gap.com/browse/product.do?pid=221680002&userSearchText=criss+cross+applesauce+skort&searchCID=44995). Someone somewhere must like these things and harem pants (not me, but someone).
Anon 3:19...I find your comment maddening. That is of course if this is actually a lulu employee posting or not, which I doubt it is. Anyway, it pisses me off that here I am spending my hard (hard) earned money to pay your salary through buying $100 pairs of pants (I can't even admit to how many I own) and you all are up there in the ivory tower mocking us and having the audacity to put out pants like this "amuse me" pant. If lulu's clothes were expensive then I'd say mock away but at their prices, it's a total slap in the face to know we are the lulu laughing stock. I've cut down my lulu spending tremendously and have started to purchase Calvin Klein performance wear which is high quality clothing that mirrors lulu's fabrics (ebb and flows anyone?) for a fraction (fraction) of the price of lulu. I highly doubt anyone at CK is intentionally trying to piss off their consumer like lulu is.
*inexpensive, not expensive!I meant to say, if lulu's clothing was *inexpensive* then you could mock me all you want....Oops, that was a serious typo!
@ lexaYou rock. Thx for the link. LOL!! You made my day. I miss that show. It was hysterical.
As an ACTUAL educator pants like this piss me off. They are 1) fugly 2) overpriced 3) they will go markdown soooo fast 4) what crackpot at head office approve this shit? Am I supposed to actually try to sell these (because that's what lulu will do - make a shitty design then push push push its employees to shove it down people's throats or else risk a bad performance review). As an addict and an educator I'm pissed that the higher ups are wasting money like this, or not quality testing and doing SO MANY product pullbacks. Please know lulu employees are getting ticked off too. The quality an design have gone down the drain. With all the money they use to produce bleeding colors or ugly designs they could instead lower prices!
@4:02 it's really nice to hear that we aren't the only ones that are weirded out by what's happening. I've wondered what educators really think of how things are run from the top.
@ anon 1:43 pm - LOL - rocking the Aladdin look.
@ anon 3:27 pm - I thought lulu values our feedback. Lulu puts out a lot of designs so they all can't be gems. The Namaste tank is quite awesome. The Ebb and Flows are great. Every now and then a classic is born. I've been buying lulu long enough to know the really great stuff comes out in the fall. You just have to wait out the lulls when the "b" team has been puton design.
Will these pass the bend over test? Someone else will have to check for me since I won't be able to see the mirror!
What is the color of the pants on the model wearing the deep breath tank? Are those lilac wunders!?! If so then I am cray excited!
Anon 6:45pm, good catch! On the website with the black deep breath tank, the model is wearing a medium bright purple legging pant that is definitely not bruised berry!
Purple pants on black x long crb model too
Hey Lulu, Jasmine and Alladin want their pants back
Everybody is just too funny today. I am rolling at these comments. My abs almost hurts. I don't want my husband to find out about these pants coz 1) he will cut me off and 2)he will sell his stocks quick. This is unsettling. Yes I know in the fall we'll definitely see more stuff. Hang in there one and all. I too have cut down. It's been nice going to bed on Mondays not thinking so much about how much you've charged to your credit card. Let's just say Lulu is forcing us to take a break. Namaste my friends...
Yes, I would be amused wearing these due to the fact that I could fit a vibrator wielding midget in them with me ;-)!
I see these worn more AFTER a hot yoga class or at the beach/boardwalk etc w/ flat sandals. There is nothing more comfortable on a hot sticky day, than a light, loose garment (it's almost like not wearing clothes) and they are fashionable too!So please tell me where I might order these. Thanks!
Me too, but I'd wait for loot. Delightfully wacky.
Anon @3:19pm = designer of these pants. Lol.
I have to whole-heartedly agree with the other educator. We want what you want: quality, great design, fun and awesome clothes. Nothing pisses me off more then to have to try and sell this junk. Oh, but that's "inside voice", only for LLL employees to hear. My "outside voice" is supposed to sell you this junk and a bleeding tank top too.
Somehow I just don't think wearing these pants would be at all like not wearing clothes. Dragging around the third leg sounds like hard work!
anon @ 3:19pm - mock me all you want. I'm not the one stuck with a truckload of these pants.
The crotch on those is lower than MC Hammer pants!! I'm 5' tall-can you imagine? The crotch would drag the floor. Such a stupid concept. The name even implies that they know they are silly.
2 Legit to QUIT, HEY HEY!
I like those pants. I think that they are really interesting. I would wear those at the beach,or yacht with a cute bikini top. I would not pay the high price LULU is charging, but I think they are wacky in a good way.
I am glad so many of you wrote some really funny things today- because when I first saw this, it just made me really sad. This boards had me laughing- especially with 'Ocean' chiming in and M.E.L.R.'s "camel toe" comment. I enjoyed Lulu so much in the past and want them to come back, but (for me) the designs keep going downhill. It's baffling. The swimsuit line????? I just don't understand. I wish they'd release less and do better. Some of my favorite and most flattering items in my closet are old lulu. I hope they manage to get their quality and aesthetic back. Then again, change is good and not everyone agrees on taste. Either way, I think I am now a recovered addict.
I somehow like the look despite of all these 'bad' comments on this pant.
I'm of middle eastern and indian descent... waaay back. I actually really like these pants. They're very exotic looking and I think they look great (if you've got the right body for them). I find them extremely comfortable, too!Yes, they look like they're from the 80s or they look like Aladin's pants, but seriously, they're so unique.I personally dress differently than most females around me, and they're always telling me they love my outfits, saying they could never pull them off, and asking me where I get my clothes and jewellery.It's all about confidence ladies! And owning whatever you're wearing. My boyfriend knows that when I make fashion choices wondering if he'll be seen in public with me is the LAST thing on my mind.I don't care if he likes what I wear or not, it's my body. I have to like it. But, he always seems to like my choices, anyways...FYI: I buy most of my clothes and jewellery from local fairs. Support local artists!
