16 Hour and Power Play Dresses - More "Sustainable" Design Items








Two new dresses have come out. The one with the snug skirt is the 16 Hour Dress. These look a like Power Y mated with a black luon skirt. These are obviously the fruit of the sustainable design team which finds ways to reinvent product that doesn't sell. 

Shown with the Oh Hey Pullover (another sustainable product?)



The Power Play Dress is very similar to the 16 Hour Dress - a Power Y with a flared luon skirt on the bottom. I believe the price on both of these is $88.




I've been rather underwhelmed by the frankenlulu sustainable products that have come out thus far. I don't understand why undersold product can't have a cute "limited edition" screen print thrown on it, particular when it's something like a solid white Power Y tank.

I'm blown away at how ridiculous this stuff looks!

Is that city by the bay 105 F a new release in San Fran? Love that!

I like the fitted 16 Hour dress, looks like it has a decent length too which will be a nice treat, LOL. I know you can create this look with a tank and a skirt, but I don't like things shifting out of place when I have a long tank under a high waisted skirt.

I thought the black and white dresses were cute. Am I wrong? I thought they looked adorable on. Do you think they look ridiculous? Input is appreciated since I bought them. I don't want to look ridiculous. Lol.

Here's an idea LLL: quit cranking out some of this stuff just because you can, then you won't need to "reinvent" anything. Quit being wasteful to begin with.

When you knock it out of the park with something like the new Race Your Pace LS, yes produce that and items of that calibre!

Don't get me started on the quality of items offered at Wanderlust and Sea Wheeze. I agree people attending those events should have access to exclusive items, but move that quality of offering into the mainstream retail please.

What happens to the items that go to sustainable development that turn into this and then don't sell ? ????

Hehe

No offence to these designers, I am not a fashion icon but any means......but what kind "designing" does it take to sew your plain power y into your not even as flattering as the yoga over skirt? LLA your right, even a simple screen print would have gone farther!

The dress and the SF shirts are really cute, I do not think it is a bad idea. I would purchase and wear that dress. there are lots of different people with different tastes who shop at lululemon.

I think the girls look super cute in those dresses! I agree with the other reviewer, it's nice to have things connected so it all stays in place with no fuss. Honestly, I think these are more sexy and feminine then that $168 generic skater dress. Plus, reasonably priced. Not sure what all the griping is about?

It's ugly. There, I said it.

It would have been perfect if, like what a previous commenter said, it was the power y top attached to the yoga over skirt! I would have been all over that!

The black and white dress... hmmm. I'm not going to get into details, but it definitely looks a lot better on some than others... i'm not trying to be mean, but it is not a universally flattering look. The pic with the back view (headband and sunglasses), she looks great, but then again would probably look good in pretty much anything. I think if you go to Bloomingdales or Saks, there are a ton of similar styles, this is clearly out of LLL's comfort zone or area of expertise... It's frustrating when i see odd/one-off items on people from LLL on the street or at the gym or in line at Starbucks. Stick with yoga/athletic wear, venture into some items like a shawl/wrap to wear post workout... but please stop there.

The SF screen printed shirts are not "limited edition" releases. The girls who work at the Grant Avenue location designed the screens and offer complimentary screen printing for their guests.

I like the 16 hour dress, would have gotten it if it came out in the beginning of SUMMER! Too cold where I live for that, I'd have to wait until next year. So no. But I do think it's cute!

@ anon 2:33 pm - I would call it limited in the sense that you can only get it at the Grant Ave or maybe another SF-area store.

The skirt design on the more form-fitting dress is also a direct rip-off of the Iladora cycling skirt I have. Nice one, Lulu.
