NEW Top Speed Crops and More

Also shown is the Alberta Lake Rose Herringbone Define

New Top Speed crops with bonded seams. I think that means they'll cost more than typical run crops. I like the shorter length.


More photos of the two new Define jacket in Polar Cream and Alberta Lake Rose Herringbone.


Photo of the new Raspberry Glo pink Inpsire crops with a matching Swiftly in Rapsberry Glo and what looks like Black Swan (it could be black, though).

A photo of one of the new No Limit Tanks in Black/Rose Herringbone and Herringbone Wunder Unders.

I'm personally not a big fan of the Herringbone pattern. I saw someone at the gym today wearing the Black Rose Herringbone Define and it just looked very cheap to me. Not digging the whole fake lace look.

Bummed that the swiftly is two tones :( would have preferred just rasberry glo.

actually i'm not loving the alberta lake herringbone combo. I got the black herringbone define and it is just so beautiful and goes with everything! Not really excited for anything other than raspberry glo items... might just need to invest in my first swiftly LS as i'm really liking it in that color combo)

Ot but what's with all the NLTs in different variations on white or black?? All the releases seem the same these days except that halloween one!

This is completely off topic, but could someone explain why people buy fulu? Because they love the design? Want others to think it lulu? I do not get it.

The Black/Rose No Limits Tank and the Herringbone Wunder Unders are beautiful together.

what on earth is brushed luxtreme? is this new, or has lulu put out items in brushed luxtreme before (i'm familiar with brushed luon, but have never heard of brushed luxtreme). if so, what items?

@ sohpia - they've used brushed luxtreme before. The Ambition Pullover came out in brushed luxtreme. It's a little warmer than regular luxtreme.

@ anon 3:59 pm - I don't get it either. You save money on it but there is no resale market for it. When I factor in what I get back on reselling my old lulu it often gets it to the price of fake lulu so I don't see the point.

I agree! I don't like the Alberta lake rose define but LOVE my black rose define... I wore it with my squiggle pow purple WUCs and my pow purple scarf and grey nike's and it was soooo cute together! Can't wait to pair it with everything!

I love my black rose Define, too. Gorgeous. A bit dressier than my other Defines, which I often wear to work.

I also love my fulu Costco "Defines" (teal and purple). I don't care about resale. They cost me $15-$25 and I don't plan to resell them. They are holding up wonderfully.

As for the Kyodan stuff that I also love (best Lulu knockoffs, imo), for me I don't care if anyone thinks I'm wearing Lulu or Kyodan or whatever. I buy something because I like the cut and the fabric. As long as it's made well (which most Kyodan is and most Lulu is, or at least classic Lulu), I don't care what brand it is. In fact, I often take a sharpie and color in my Lulu logos. I'd rather not have a logo.

But when I do splurge on a high-priced Lulu item, it is definitely a factor to me that I can resell it for almost the same amount if I change my mind. If that were not the case, I wouldn't splurge on a fraction of the Lulu that I do.

I also love certain items in other high-end brands.

Anyway, that's my explanation for fulu love. Less money, same quality. If it's less money and worse quality, I don't go for it, of course. Cost per wear is a factor, and cheaply made items will have a higher cost per wear because they'll go to pot sooner -- whether they're Lulu or another brand. So...all those factors influence me.

IMO, you do not make sense. Why mark out a logo, if you do not care about the brand. I do not like fake anything! Rather just buy Gap or Nike but faux stuff drives me nuts. I feel it is similar to cheating-stealing design concepts. I would rather go without.

I am a poor student, but would be embarrassed wearing fake lulu!

Does it really matter if people like "fulu" and you don't? It shouldn't matter, to each their own. It's rude to judge people. We are here to look at LLL not judge other people and determine if they make sense. Geez!

I would mark out a logo because I'm tired of people tapping me on the shoulder to tell me there seems to be a sticker stuck on my leg. And because I don't care if anybody knows I'm wearing Lulu or not.

I wear stuff for how it looks on me, and the quality, not whose label it is. If a knockoff is bad quality, I don't wear it. If a Lulu item is bad quality, I don't wear it. Simple.

But I don't have a problem with people who love wearing logos and having people know the brand they buy. To each his own.

The legality of knockoffs is a whole other debate, and a worthwhile one, but probably not for this site. It's a complicated issue, from what people in the fashion industry say. Lulu's lawsuit against Calvin Klein will prove interesting to follow.
