The Latest



More Sattva Jacket and Pant photos. Kind of tired of looking at these sloppy-looking pieces. The more I see of them the less I like, especially for the price point. Hopefully, photos of the latest technical pieces will start popping up.


Sattva :Pullover photos.


The new Seven Days of Asana bag is $118. It's high but not outrageously high like the $148 Keep On Running Duffel.

A cute Paddington Jacket group.

Seriously?!?! If my hands are in my pockets and I'm holding up my boobs, and I'm paying $128.00 to do that, well... I'm just not. Plus I just got rid of a ton of stuff in my closet that "miraculously" got short through the years. I can't imagine what I'd think of this is a few years, sattva bra top?

That Sattva jacket is a travesty.

I snagged two Principle jackets at a thrift shop and I have a Scuba Shaped hoodie, I am a fan of cropped jackets. But this Sattva jacket looks really weird :/
The only thing I am interested in is the bordeaux drama Bang Buster, and of course the cashew tonka stripe Vinyasa, but I won't pay full price for a strip of fabric with some snaps on it :D

Haha everyone is waiting for the sing floss jacket and all they release is incredibly short hoodies that only suit a certain body type!

These jackets are a polar opposite of what the consumer wants!

What colors does the new bag come in?

@anon 8:44... Don't forget! They have also released drop waist costs with absolutely no tailoring. Well, half drop-waist... Even more atrocious.

@ anon 9:14 pm - I've seen it in Cashew (like a bone color) and black so far.

On the US website under Speed shorts you can see the flare/tonka stripe speeds in the video... WANT! They are so cute! I am definitely getting those and pigment stripe power y.

I have a theory that Lulu isn't releasing popular items like power y, CRB, speeds, etc at the same time as expensive jackets/bags so people will spend the money on expensive jacket this week and other things next week! I wouldn't because my Lululemon budget is about $100-200 a month lol.

Does everyone still hate the new inspire waistband? I love the angel blue but not if it causes muffin tops! The ones I have fit soo well. Might just have to search ebay/lulu exchange...

I agree with others in that I want technical, multifunctional pieces. I am not paying $108 for basic sweats! Wunder unders and CRB/Power Y's I can wear for both yoga/gym and casual wear.

I agree with your comments LLA, I do not like the sloppy items either. I think they are awful. Plus, you can be the cutest girl/women in the world, but that Satva Jacket is doing no one anything flattering by chopping up the body like that. What nonsense 'design' at the back as well.

They made 'flood' Running with my Homies pants, now they're making 'flood' sweaters.

I have two pairs of the "new-waisted" inspires, and they are a pain. I am 5'5 and 120 lbs (lulu 4 in most items) but i get a size 6 in luxtreme crops including inspires, and the new waistband still manages to create an imaginary muffin top. I always tend to grab my older inspires compared to the new ones, which only really get worn if my other ones are in the wash lol. I also love the angel blue, but the new waistband just doesn't work. Fool me once, shame on you lulu, but fool me twice...

none of that stuff is for me. but I see a lot of people in NYC walking around in weird stuff like that, so maybe we are not up to the latest fashion craze.
I stick to functional and simple although I like color.
I can't believe the pace setter in flare is sold out everywhere. I am sad I really wanted that skirt.
I saw a size 6 at my local store and I fell in love with the color. it is 4 way swift I like the 2 way in this skirt , but I am so in love with the color I would take it in the 2 way.

oh well.........

Apple launching the iPhone 5 on Sept 21, before the Sept 29 end quarter - this is a business model.

LLL designing and producing shoddy items that look as though they were designed while on crack... And then launching them at a schizophrenic, unreliable, inconsisent pace and color scheme is something else... but not a business model.

Focus said...

Ok, I'm sure several have posted but last night, in the very early wee hours, the button to purchase BD tonka stripe WU pants started working. Anxious to hear what you all are planning to wear with these, I am loving the pants but doubting my fashion sense utilizing a tonka stripe.

I just cannot believe how ugly these clothes look. I am in total disbelief!

Is that a new color WU that the middle girl is wearing in the last pic of the trio wearing the paddington jackets? That color is gorgeous! Sort of like jewel-tone purple.

Ann said...

I agree with LLA and others... these clothes are sloppy! If I wanted ragged looking sweatpants I would go to the Urban Outfitters sale section.

Does anyone have the Rest Day pullover and it it worth the price?

Stefanie said...

These clothes are horrid. We sit here and wait for the new and exciting colors to come out in our favorite tried-and-true styles, and they give us this sloppy mess. Being a top-heavy apple shape, flowy, boxy shirts do absolutely nothing for me. Disappointed. Although, this is good for my budget, so I guess it's not too horrible. On a side note, at what point (color scheme) did the new Inspire waistband come out? I'd like to get a pair but I don't want the muffin-top ones. I just ordered a pair of the bright at night crops last night because I love high waistbands. I hope they work out. Also going to give CW-X Stabilyx crops a try...have heard such wonderful things about them!

LuluAddict said...

@ Stefanie - My sister loves CW-X for her marathons/halfs. She does train in her lulu crops, though.

I think the lilac dot and flash light were some of the first inspires with new waist band. I have concord grape and porcelain/WAFS and they are fine.

@Ann - i just bought a Rest Day Pullover when it was released again recently...I was skeptical because it's a pricey sweatshirt, but I read comments about how everyone loved theirs and so got one myself. LOVE. i mean, truly LOVE. it's the sweatshirt i have stashed in my bag right now to pull on when the air conditioning gets to be a bit too much...and i'm sure it will be the sweatshirt i wear as a warm layer into fall. i love it because it's actually quite fitted without being skin tight, and it's much more compact that, say, a scuba but warmer than a define (i get cold easily). so right now it's been my go-to. i think it's fitted enough to not look too sloppy, and the cowl neck gives it a bit of fashionability (for a sweatshirt, at least). oh, and did i mention how super soft and cozy it is? because it is. i only wish there was a more exciting color than black or grey (i got grey). I would love this in a dense purple, for instance.

Lately, LLL seems to be designing more lounge wear than workout wear. Maybe this stuff sells well in Canada? Where I live, lulu is just starting to take off. People at my gym are starting to wear it and they always wonder why there is never anything cute on the website. I get a lot of compliments on things from around two years ago. People want more pretty, supportive tanks (for more than yoga) and the cute running skirts of the past, as well as shorts that provide coverage for gym activities. We all need to/from pieces to cover up afterwards, too. If they can figure that out, they will sell their product like crazy. I don't see most people paying those prices for pajama-like clothing, but I do see a huge market for gym-goers just discovering how great LLL is.

LLL seems to go through phases where they put out lots of lounge wear or lots of technical wear. I would love if they brought back a lightweight french terry or modal hoodie - just a basic hoodie, not a fashion statement - like the Remix Light (french terry) or Remix Lux (modal). That is a key piece that is missing from their lineup. I wear a lightweight hoodie around the house 3/4 of the year and the ones I have now are starting to show a bit of wear.

I was really bummed they never made more than a few Every Yogi SS Tees. I thought I found my classically-styled casual wear tee but then they started coming out with unevenly hemmed tops in the burnout material which doesn't wear nearly as well and is super delicate.

Why would anyone pay over $300 for what is essentially (IMO) an outfit that screams "help me i'm homeless"? Yuck.

Ann said...

Sophia, thank you! Your description is exactly what I am looking for.
