What the Hard Core Lulu Fans Are Saying About the Latest

From a post on one of my lulu Facebook discussion boards:

I think we need a moment of silence to observe the death of good design.
  • Ummmmmm???? .... hmmmmmm. I'm kind of stumped by this ... no witty wisecracks, no digs, just pure confusion. I need a moment of silence.
  • Absolutely tragic. *Taps playing in background*
  • That's how I felt with the beaming blue Daily Yoga jacket. It's like they're taking inspiration from Hot Dog on a Stick uniforms and Captain EO shoulders.
  • I have no words  
  •  Barf
  • Oh I like it. Not!!!!
  • Can someone tag Jane Jetson? I believe this is her jacket
  • ewwww 
  • All it needs is shoulder pads.
  • Okay I do have some words...wtf?
  • Michael J Fox called and he wants that jacket to go with his dolorian... HELP we've been transported back to shinny sparkle spandex and the 80's!!
  • Ladies, I think we have officially jumped the shark 
  • One word friends: Athleta.
  • I can't stop looking at this pic. It's so horrible I can't stop! I just don't understand these colors.
  • Bahahahahahaha
  • It's like a jacket fashioned out of wrapping paper scraps 
  • I think I just threw up a little in my mouth
  • It makes me too dizzy to actually get a clear description. Words fail me. That in itself is note worthy ...
  • Lulu needs to drug test their design team. Then send them to rehab.
  • I have no words
  • Who's setting their alarm for this one? 
  • Blech!
  • oh man...
  • Looks like a modern star trek uniform. All she needs is the little button thing they push to say "beam me up scotty!"
  • I keep coming back to this post trying to think of maybe one positive thing to say....but really there is nothing! It looks like seniors leisure wear...so so bad!
  • I think that's it. I don't think this jacket is ugly or anything but it doesn't have a youthful or sporty look to it all. This would never catch my eye, that's for sure.
  • Maybe if we stare The black and mint pattern long enough, we will see a face or a secret message....or the fashionable Ikea monkey!
  • I think a monkey in this jacket just might make it look better .... and it would definitely explain a lot.

It's not that bad! I mean I wouldn't wear it but I'm sure some girl would look cute in it. First thing is that the jacket is thinner and not as nice as the heathered define. The normal define feels just like a Costco jacket. 2nd thing it doesn't fit her right.,It should be more snug. Also the reason why they changed is probably because almost all the workout brands have copied the define jacket. They needed a style that was better, but it turned out its worst. Workout gear is so competitve now since lululemon made the world know that people will spend a fortune on what they wear to the gym.

This is greatness. I giggled.
And they're right. What. The. Heck. BLECH.

LOL. I agree. Terrible looking design. So many of their new products make even the models look dumpy.

Great comments.

Totally OT, but did anyone else who ordered the new black and white stripe speeds shorts find they run a tad small? I haven't put on any weight (that i know of) but these seem a bit tighter than my normal size 4 speeds do? Also, I ordered the shell pink speeds and while they are lovely, they are SHEER. You can see the edge of the liner in the front just while standing and you can see it all the way across the bum when you squat. I am going to keep them as "casual wear in summer/to the beach" shorts, but yeah i won't be doing any sweaty workouts in them :S

If only it had matching pants, I would buy it for my grandma and she would love it.

"I need this jacket !", said no one ever...

Um no.....it's pretty awful!! Im a huge Star Trek fan and yep, it looks very Star Trekkie! LOL... I too agree, Lulu designers have been on crack lately...or smokin something!! (And they have yet to come down from their high!) I can't understand 98% of the color blocking, they've come up with, on their designs! WTF is right! I hear they are coming out with a new jacket and it will be called the "LMAO jacket" and seriously, you are gonna put that sucker on and people WILL laugh at you! The matching pants coming out...to go with this new jacket, will be crotchless, because they've decided to REMOVE the gusset & sew that gusset (from the pants) to the elbows of your LMAO jacket! STAY TUNED on this new and upcoming product line!! It is surely going to leave you saying OMG & WTF!! I hear this will be Christine Days new staple line!

Im SO embarrassed to be a Lulu Fan right now, that Ive gone into hiding! :(

I actually don't think these colors/patterns would be at all bad if it were a define!

This just sums up why I have not bought anything at Lululemon in awhile. Poor color choice and design. The educators are not even wearing the new stuff. Then there is the cheaper materials issue, and the inflated prices of items.
I just read an interesting post on Lulumum regarding sales at LULU recently. Apparently sales have been lagging. This jacket is a good example of why!

sophia said...

... no, anon 9:42. it IS that bad. yeah, it's just a jacket, so whatever. but it is that bad. might some people love this? sure. some people love eating dirt. that doesn't mean that dirt is good, it means there's something wrong with that person. if you love this jacket, your aesthetic sense is just plain flawed.

Anonymous said...

Those are hill airy ass!!!!!! But really that jacket is BAAAAAAD! I can't emagine them sitting there and liking this and saying okay its a win off to production people heres the order: make 100,000 of these bad boys. I just can't emagine that ha ha ha!

HAHAHAHAHAHAAAA

love it

Anonymous said...

lol have to agree with these comments... Lulu was correct in naming that line WTF. All of their products (minus a few nice things like the Back to Class jacket) recently have been WTF.

Anonymous said...

It may be "just a jacket," 9:42 a.m., but when you add it to "just a pullover," "just a tank," "just a bra," "just a hoodie" and "just a scarf," you've got more than just a design hiccup.

You could not pay me $128 to wear that. Is it possible they have completely different taste in clothes in upside down world in Australia?

Minda said...

I showed this pic to my husband and asked him what he thought - without mentioning any of these comments or even showing anything negative or positive in my demeanor - lol FIRST thing out of his mouth was -
WOW - it looks like something from a cheesy 1970's sci fi alien movie!
LOL

RunItMyWay said...

So many things wrong with the jacket. I think the comments above have covered the ugly design, pattern and colour blocking - but what really gets me is the shape of the jacket. That particular model has a KILLER body - and you'd never guess it based on the way she looks in the jacket! If this jacket can make someone so beautiful and fit look so-so, what is it going to do to normal folk?!

On the bright side, it's keeping me from spending Christmas money on myself this year :-P

Anonymous said...

Yip... your right anon 3:09! In Australia we all love to wear rejects from the 80's that someone designed while smoking crack!!! LMAO

Anonymous said...

I honestly don't think it's that bad. I wouldn't pay full price for it, but if it was ever on clearance, I would think about buying it!

Anonymous said...

Someone remind Lulu that people pay to look BETTER in clothes, not worse.

Anonymous said...

Omg I love how you said that they are going to remove the gusset and put it on the elbows!!!! You should totally do stand up hilarious!!!! And so so true.

It is Spring in AUS... This looks very "Easter egg" to me.

Anonymous said...

hey! Be nice to the lovely Australians!

They are upside down but still have taste :)

Good businesses, among other things, understand their niche. They excel at it and focus their efforts in that unique niche.

Lululemon has a beautiful base, but by veering away too far from their core items (athletica) they're risking losing their core following and all relevance.

Anonymous said...

I was just kidding about the Australians :) I want to see Christine Day wear this. That should be her punishment- wear this jacket every day and think about what she's done.

Anonymous said...

Anon @ 12:24 you are hysterical!!! Don't forget that if u get camel toe in the new crotchless pants it's totally your fault and not lulu's!!! Since they removed the gusset there can't possibly be CT anymore - it's a cutting edge redesign that their customers love!!!

Anonymous said...

you are so sweet Anon 9.09pm!

serious lolz at the Christine Day punishment... wear the jacket and write, x100 times, I promise to try harder in design class and will complete my homework next term.

Thats the very reason we don't have proper gussets in our Lulu pants anymore!! :( They got mixed-up with their elbows & their who whos! And we all know....those are two very different areas! One is north and one is south...in the hot zone! LOL... See they are right! Drugs are bad for you!! LOL... lulu, PLEASE lay off the crack!
What's next? An eye patch made out of a gusset? Oh gawd, please Lulu, NO! LOL

My goodness they can't even put the right size on the damn model! You want the clothes to fit and flatter while displaying for sale...hello, common sense one would think!
