Sneak peeks from this week’s lululemon product drops overseas. There’s quite a few this week since it’s the first drop of the season!
The scuba hoodie got a makeover. It’s called the scuba hoodie iii *terry, and it looks like the scuba and the on the daily hoodie had a baby. The first color is listed as hyper stripe deepest cranberry, which it’s clearly not, but maybe that’s a color that’s coming. The second one is butter pink. I’d be curious to try this on, but my initial reaction is not great. The sleeves are very loose (which usually looks bad on me), and it looks like it got the same fit as the OTD, which I really don’t like. Also, the logo looks a bit off to me here, too. I’m not sure if the scuba hoodie is being phased out in favor of this new design altogether or if it will still appear in older colors. Many scubas have been selling pretty slowly, especially compared to the OTD, so I can’t really blame lulu if they did nix the scuba as we previously knew it.
New speed shorts: so fly butterfly, cranberry, and mini pop stripe black/mink berry. I think I’m safe from all 3 of these–whew. I kind of like mini pop stripe, but not sure how I feel about mink berry, and I don’t love the pizazz accents. Note the butterflies have pizazz in the print, too.
The pleat to street skirt has been updated again. This is now the pleat to street skirt iii. The pleats are muuuch narrower than the previous verison. New colors are so fly butterfly angel wing and pipe dream blue.
So fly butterfly fatigue green cool racerback.
Free to be wild bra in so fly butterfly angel wing.
Pretty new tie dye swiftly short sleeve in cranberry.
Speed tights got yet another tweak to become the speed tight iv (shown in cranberry). It looks like the waistband is slightly different, and the logo is now on the waistband instead of the calf.
New tie dye seamless bottoms. These are cadet blue/sapphire blue and wine berry/bordeaux drama in the flow crops and ebb to street pants. This pattern looks really nice.
Super squad shorts in ziggy snake red tide. This color looks nice in these shorts, though the fit of these is still wildly unappealing to me. Look at that duck tail in the back. No me gusta.
Adding to the long list of tweaks and reduxes, these are the new stillness pants. The old still pants were phased out quite some time ago, and now a new version is finally back. These capitalize on the high waist trend with a rolldown option that goes all the way up to just under your bra line if you like. This makes them look like maternity pants, which is a purpose they’d probably be well-suited to. They have a similar fit to the old stills–relaxed and pretty straight all the way down the leg–but with the addition of a cinchable drawcord at the hem.
New circadian tank, made of pima cotton.
New go the distance jacket and vest. These are designed to be weather-resistant. Both have stowable hoods, and the vest packs into one pocket, like some of lulu’s other recent designs. Between this and the recent backpack it jacket/vest, it looks like they’re breaking out of the miss misty rut.
New vent it out crops with criss-cross venting detail. They are luxtreme and have a zipperless back pocket.
New all the right places pants. These have quite a few details, like strategic seaming, a side pocket, a zipperless back pocket, full-on luxtreme panels intended for compression/support, and no front middle seam for camel toe prevention.
New keep on track pants in butterfly texture. These are light luxtreme with a slightly tailored fit, side detail, and zip front pockets.
New follow your bliss bag, shown here in bordeaux drama/apex stripe/mink berry. As the name suggests, it’s designed to be a yoga tote. You can clip the strip of fabric (the one right under the handles) for a slimmer profile.
From Australia, a new down-filled vest: the fluffiest vest. The color is new also: soft earth. Since we’re getting into our chilly season, I’m guessing this is one seasonal piece that might come to North America. Last year lulu released the chilly chill vest in August as the first puffy cold weather item, so this might be this year’s design. Like the chilly chill vest, this one reverses (this color flips to so fly butterfly).
The new sunshine coast long sleeve reminds me a bit of last year’s cabin yogi long sleeve. This one looks like a slightly lighter, softer knit. It’s made of boolux, same as the cabin yogi collection. I like the design a lot, and might be tempted if some good colors come out since I could use some simple, casual long sleeve tees. So far there’s just medium grey, fatigue, and black.
New beyond boundaries pants, ziggy snake fatigue green here. It’s full-on luon with a high rise and laser cut side paneling.
New run wild 1/2 zip in classic stripe, made of light luxtreme. The back is solid black if you don’t want to look like the hamburglar, or it also comes in floral sport tranquil blue and solid black.
