The ultimate blog for Lululemon Athletica fans. Photos, reviews, and news of the latest lulu.
They are gorgeous, but I can imagine the bleeding situation will be insanely out of hand. I am honestly surprised that they are allowing these to be released without making 100% sure that there are no bleeding issues. Oh wait, there is still the messed up gusset issue. Sigh...why oh why do you have to mess with something that was once so, so good?
I have a currant crb from last year, I've worn it many times, and it has never bled. I bet if they do a crb in currant this time around it will be heathered.Is that a new NLT pictured with the currant WUs?
Not to mention see thru and crappy stitching on the jacket. I once would have been excited about these items....
I'm not buying pants until they fix the gusset. I can buy red pants else where if I really want them.
I have the currant CRB from last year as well and have never had bleeding issues. I have worn it several times and washed it with all of my other lulu gear and have had no problems.
They are really cute but I wouldn't dare touch them. Those are going to be a mess.
The colour is nice, but I don't want to add a load to my already overburdened lulu laundry separation situation for one lone pair of WUs. At least with the pinks, I've amassed enough to justify a single load at medium water level.Then of course there's that gusset thing.These would have looked great with a currant scuba and in the past I'd have jumped at both pieces. Sadly, now, both are an easy pass.
Yuk...clown red pants, no thanks. That chick has an amazing body but I don't think that red is doing her justice.
I think I remember seeing heathered red CRBs a year or so ago. Was that currant?
Yeah that red is a bit much as pants IMO. As a top though...pretty!
Thank goodness for my LAVA red BY. look fabu and no bleeding worry.
actually full red pants look really awesome with a black flowy top =D gotta wear with lots of personality though!! no wall flowers allowed in hot pants!!!!
There, avatar now red pants plus my australian shepherd Teddy Bear taking a nap! Hot Pants for the win!!
I literally gasped when I saw the red WUC. I must have them !!I have washed lots of new items: Pow Pink Instride Jacket, Pow Pink NLT, Pop Orange CRB, Pow Pink Turbo Shorts, Power Purple WUC...none of them bled
Like Cari and Anon 4:13 PM, I too have the currant and heathered Tango Red CRB. None were bleeders. But keep in mind that these are the "older" color of same name, (at least the Currant). After the most recent currant Scuba fiasco, (again, I have the older version of the currant Scuba that doesn't bleed!) I am hesitant to order these new ones. Maybe we'll also see some safe neutrals in this upload! lol, as I am a lover of brights!
I love these! I'm trying to curb my lulu spending (which has been easier with all of the bleeding issues), and I figure once I have a decent rainbow of colors I'll be able to stop buying WUs. Now all I need are these, a decent green, and a true orange (I love flash, but it's not a "true" enough color for me) and I'll be finished! Yay! Hope they have a pacesetter in currant too.
Love the turqoise blue and red together like in the Sea Wheeze outfit!!!!Hope we get those red and turqoise speed shorts!There is also a lime green in the plaid on the mens goody bag shorts and what looks like a dark purple?
Okay Minda! Now I want one (the red pants and Teddy Bear!). How quickly she changes her mind-lol! Prefer the crops, though. Honestly, the only colors that bleed for me are the Paris Pink and Ray. And only in the wash. So far all the other brights are fine, but that doesn't mean I'm going to wash them with my whites anytime soon! And I am one of those few people that weren't bothered by the triangle gusset. Oval, diamond and triangle are all fine with no CT. :) Just can't do it with no gusset at all!
I have the currant CRB (solid) and LS swiftly that came out in December (I'm surprised they're re-releasing a color so soon....it's only been 9 months! Then again, they've been coming out with flash items for a solid 7 months now, so I guess I shouldn't be surprised). No bleeding. So here's hoping that the dyes and fixitive haven't changed!
Yes! Heathered Tango Red was the name of the color I passed up a while back. If the Currant CRB is rereleased and heathered, I'll snap that up. I can even wash it with my currant swifty, lol. Seriously, thought none of my pow items have bled. Hopefully, currant won't either.Gina
@Yogibabe ! YAY! Teddy Bears love red leggings! =D- I agree, all that red is a commitment, but I view it like I do the inkblots and FLASH . . . just gotta COMMIT! LOLCapris would be the happy medium! I wear this red with black tops or charcoal tops, also a chocolate brown cami. I'm madly in love with red and brown together!!
I just purchased the current scuba, haven't taken the tags off yet- what's the recent scuba fiasco?
I love red myself! Bring it. I can't wear to wear it with my boots in the fall and get my mood started on christmas shopping. I want crops but pants will do. I also like power purple but since I'm gearing towards the cooler months (what? in Texas?), I should get the ones that would look good with holiday outfits. I promise to wear more Lulu in my daily life outside the gym so I can get my money's worth. This is a good addition to my WU deep indigo denim slub pants I got recently. I am in the mood... I am returning the 2 scuba hoodies I bought last week since the zipper is really hideous. I felt insulted when I got it while thinking what an idiot they think I am to just be ok with this. It is not ok. They are saying sayonara soon. Tomorrow . Soon. I will save my money for the caspian scuba. I want to give my kids (2) and sisters (3 of them)a jacket for christmas so I am waiting for a good one so all will be happy. I am excited.I want to thank yogi babe again for hailing me about the scuba. It did not work for me this time but know I really appreciate you.
Anon@5:27- I'm not sure if the other post was implying that the currant scuba has been bleeding but what I do know is that the new currant scuba has been be mailed to people (myself included) with a very faded coloring instead of being vibrant and also the zipper is this hideous metal color instead of a beautiful red to go with the rest of the jacket. It really does look like I could have bought it at Walmart. I just called Lulu today and they have emailed me a free return label to send mine back since that is not what was pictured on the site. If yours looks like how I described mine try googling pics of the currant scuba hoodie and you will see how it is supposed to look.
I love these red WUs but with all the color issues, I can imagine they'd be pink....
@Pink Peony 4You're welcome but I am sorry that they didn't wok out for you. I am waiting for the caspian blue Scuba too. The color is purdy! I've bought both the caspian and pow NLT last Friday. Love,love love!!!Here's waiting for the NLT in power purple. ;D@anon 5:27Anon 5:47 pretty much explained the currant Scuba "fiasco". So, here's hoping that any other currant items will be pretty, vibrant red!
These WUs are a bit much for me and remind me of elf legs (though, the Pigment Blue WUs and Will Pant reminded me of Smurfs, so I'll stop now;). I'm a lover of all other things Currant though and went overboard when it was released last fall (Define, CRB, Scoop, Run for it Pullover). The re-release of Currant in July makes perfect sense to me. The Olympics are starting up later this week and Currant is the perfect patriotic red for Canada and the USA IMO. Lastly, I'm guessing the NLT pictured is new and has the gray chevron/zig-zag detailing on the Flow Y bra portion.
I saw someone wearing that NLT today, and indeed the bra portion is that gray zig zag print. I think it's called blazer, or something like that.At any rate, the top looks much better on a person than it does on the rack. It actually made me wish I had inspected it more closely when I was at my store last week. I passed up the Caspian blue NLT because I was on the fence about the color. It's just a little paler than I'd like, ideally. But now I'm starting to second guess that decision, too.
I agree the currant scuba looked so blah. I will be returning mine tomorrow.
July 2012 is a good month for my wallet! First month I haven't bought anything from lulu (yet) in the past 5 years!
Thank you for explaining the "scuba fiasco"! I did notice that the color looks faded, and that's why I didn't take the tags off yet. I really want a red scuba, but I'll hold off. I thought I was jus too picky and it was just me that struggling with the color. Thanks for the explination!
I love the currant leggings! (but then I love my red cotton pants too) I just hope they come out in crops coz I think the full pants will have too much fabric at the end (I'm 5'4") and I don't live near a store than can hem it for me.
The idea of currant wus seems great but even though the model is beautiful they aren't that flattering on her. I wonder if it's the outfit she has on? Feel like I need to see more with them before I make my decision.
I am also already thinking of fall. I think I'm going to be saving my pennies for the ls Turn Arounds that I'm dreaming will be rereleased. I need long sleeved tops to wear with my new pants and crops. I checked out my local store's selection of wunder unders and scored a reversible piqué pair last week. So soft and with the old gusset. I also picked up black denim wunder unders and non- sheer ebb & flows. Gina
I just have to comment on how we all watch out for the new and awesome colors and we almost want to have every one that comes out (speaking mostly for myself) but my observation is that the people who wear the black tops and bottoms in public (airport, tv shows, etc) are the ones I seem to admire the most. You just can't go wrong with it. It just proves to show that Lulu does look good whether in black or any color IMO. I really get excited when I see someone in a Lulu gear out in public. Of course I have not seen anybody wearing the amuse me pants or the head wrap thingy (turban?) yet. I would be scared to see one in this combo at an airport...
I was a little mad to see the re-release of currant since I just paid a ridiculous amount on an older currant Define on ebay but as Yogibabe reminded me, some older colors with the same name may not mean same quality. So I shouldn't feel too bad since at least I know I'm getting it from a better quality era.
I smiled when I saw the pic of the ed in Currant WUs. I'm an international customer from Singapore and our flag colors are red and white (like Canada's). Since our independence day is around the corner too, her outfit looks very patriotic to me :) Still, the Currant WUs look cute and I might just order them.
Thanks anon 5:47. I will call lulu and ask for a return label for my 2 scuba hoodies. I am glad to know that lulu owns up to misrepresentation. I could always take it to my store here when I go this week. You are right about it looking like you bought it from wal mart. I just did not like how cheaply made it looks. And I usually have a hard time returning colors I like. If it was on sale I might keep it for a spare jacket to use out in the ranch but not full price. Our cows won't care. Ha ha.
There were currant Swiftly Long Sleeves yesterday, and now they're gone from the website. I was hoping to order one with crops from today's upload, boo! I'm still new to Lululemon, is that normal? I know the tops didn't sell out.
