I'm not impressed by this line at all. The pieces are ugly. I really don't have another adjective to describe them with.
Ugh. Basic black blah. I have enough black at this point so I will pass on all of it. I like the pullover and the Varsity tight, but would like to see it offered in something other than black and inkwell. o/t but would also like the Om T to come out in some colors for spring. It sold well online & in store so I don't understand why Lulu doesn't bring it out again. And in some colors.
Wow. Not worth the price tags. This stuff is nothing special.
This comes a bit out of left field for me, but bravo lulu for testing new waters. The marketing feels a bit "fringe" to me. Not sure I get it. I did however order the varsity tight. I'll need to see live to make a call on keeping or returning.
Personally I dig all of the Lab pieces and I would have purchased the jacket, the pullover, the tank and the pants in a NY second if I wasn't already so Lululemoned out from buying and collecting since 2007.I get the urban edgy vibe, and I was fine with the online model, but this one....well, I'm not sure which audience they are trying to attract. Where's "Ocean"? lol (wan't that the name of LLL's muse?) These photos definitely have a "Portland/Northwest" feel to them, and anybody can take that any way they want to.
Lululemon lab colors are always basic: inkwell, black, white, shades of gray. I actually love the simplicity of these pieces with the gold zipper. I can't wait to hear reviews on those pants and the jacket!
Why are these lab clothes (with the exception of the skirt, perhaps)so androgynous? Is that supposed to be edgy and modern, so that we notice that it comes from a design incubating lab and Lulu can ask premium dollars for it? All I can see is some pretty straight-forward street/exercise wear, with severe lines and colours. Not a whiff of innovation here, not in the designs nor in the materials. The knock off bra nicely adds a finishing touch for sure!
I can get past the black color but what's with the androgynous styling??
I ordered the bra and tights in inkwell. I like the simple styling. I'm excited to try them.
Omg so ugly and cheap look , it look like from second hand...Lulu what's with you :-((( I am really sad to see how this brand is gonna to ending soon... At least in Europe is it over , online all peaces still there even after 3 weeks from upload ...it is not fun anymore what they are creating. I am afraid I need new sport clothes brand in Germany
I live 10 mins walk away from the Lab in Vancouver, and pop in to have a look almost weekly. The pieces are simple, but edgy, and great quality, and I have a hard time looking there without buying, especially as I am usually there after depositing money in the bank next door! The pieces I do have are awesome, so I was excited to see this line appear. It's really street wear, and the logo branding is more subtle, so maybe it appeals to a different kind of customer than the usual lulu. I love both!
Honestly it looks very forever 21-ish to me. I get wanting to try new styles, but these are way too basic for the price they are charging.
I like the lab pieces, I like the basic colour palettes, and the styling. I suppose one could argue the styling is androgynous but I might say that femininity doesn't always have to mean long, flowing hair, pretty colours, and "pretty details."I'm noticing a trend towards simpler, pixie cuts with the teenaged girls that I work with - and the look really highlights their delicate, feminine faces... Anyway, what I don't like about the lab pieces are the prices. And usually when I think of lab I think "experimental" and "edgy" and this collection is neither.
I might be one of the few that these items (and the photography) really speaks to! then again, I do love the pacific northwest. =^.^= The price point is my only issue, I get that these items are special edition, but holy moly that is way too much for basics! If anyone has any try on reports for the Varsity Pant and the Varsity Jacket, I would greatly appreciate it! I am wondering if I should size down in the pant, since it is a slouch trouser cut, and I also want to know what the inside of the jacket feels like.
Love the colab line. I love that the logo isn't flashy, and I can wear this outside of the gym! These pieces will be great to mix with a pop of color from the regular lulu line, and will also mix well with my regular casual clothing. Less "soccer mom", more street smart. As a 36yr old into fashion and fitness this hits the mark!
YES! less "soccer mom" is exactly how lab is different than the mainstream lulu. Not that lulu is really soccer mom, but that's the reputation it has.
Very masculine, nothing feminine about it at all. Not sure why lulu would venture into a line like this?? I shop at lulu because it's gym/casual clothes. Like for example, if you want something to wear outside of the gym would you go shop at the nike store?? Probably not. Same thing here.
Love the colab line. Unfortunately, I wish it was released longer after the holiday season so that I could afford them. A better price point would be nice too. So much nicer than all the bubblegum crap lulu usually puts out. Bravo.
I guess I love colab, because for me there isn't really a line drawn between my life inside of the gym and outside of the gym. As a trainer having functional casual wear is awesome. You never know when you are going to have to demonstrate a burpee to someone, have a plank off with a friend, or step in and lead a class at a moments notice. It is nice to see clothing that is ready for all of that and more, but doesn't look like you just stepped off of the treadmill.
I like the colab line as well and agree with some of the comments about the urban feel of the styles instead of the bubble gum girlie stuff which I don't mind, but sometimes it's nice to have something a little more edgy, I don't know if I will purchase any of it but I like that lulu is experimenting with different styles.M
Sorry ladies, I just can't agree with all the negative comments. This CoLab collection is sophisticated, interesting and for comfortable, easy street wear, downright chic - reminiscent of beautiful, simple Calvin Klein styling. I love everything - unfortunately I left it too late to order and only was able to scoop the pullover, jacket and pants. It pretty much sold out in a couple of days so I'm not alone in my love for it! Keep it up Lulu Lab - I want more!
