Brace Yourselves, The Fug is Strong in These New Photos (Updated)


I don't have a name for this new top yet but I really don't need to know it. Just box it back up and send to the outlet. Shown with new Departure Pants. Does anyone know what the Departure pants are made of - Luxtreme, Luon, or Swift?

Update - the pullover is the Departure Softshell we saw in last week's Britt's Picks. OMG. Why are students designing the &Go line?

Here is the same top from the front. It's not bad but it's not that great, either.

I'm not getting why the En Route jacket is back. Was anyone asking for it again? Shown with the Yogi Racerback.



More Departure Pant photos. Shown with a new Bordeaux Here to There tank.

Trifecta of the not-so-awesome - Departure Pant, En Route Jacket, and Here to There Tank.


The rest of the photos are non-fug. The Go the Distance shorts aren't the most flattering but I assume they are meant to compete with the diaper-butt Nike Tempo shorts that tons of people swear by.





Shown with the Mauvelous stripe Race Your Pace half zip.
The Coco Pique Stride has hit stores. I don't really mind the black sleeves on this but I know a lot of people prefer a solid pique jacket.

Straight Up Stripe Vita Racer Tank.

Just awful. I wear Lululemon shorts to avoid looking like I'm wearing a diaper. I've never seen anyone wearing nike shorts who make the diaper look look good. Just saying.

Your narrative of this post is hilarious! Thanks for making me giggle this afternoon :-)

Everything is awful on this post, just awful.

@Lndsey - Fall is THE time for lululemon to shine. I don't understand why we are getting these crap designs now.

I tried the Go the Distance shorts in a 6 which I always wear in everything from shorts to wunder unders to pace tights and they were awful. I sized down to a 4 and they were good, but not so great that I wanted to spend $50+ on them. If they go on markdown I will scoop a pair up. My reasoning is I really like having a liner in my shorts so the same price yet no liner - I can wait for a sale.

I agree with you, LLA. Fall is their time to shine. So disappointing!

Your headline is hilarious. I am itching to buy something and can't find anything droolworthy at lulu -- and this IS the best time of year for new buys. Oh well at least I am correcting for past sins of indulgence

What the eff is up with that Departure top. It looks like an ironing mishap where you accidentally iron creases into your garment. Blech.

@ anon 12:39 pm - I have the itch, too, and it's frustrating not to see anything worthy to get. I am hoping there is a Bumble Berry LS Swiftly coming. Or that Rust Berry Run for Gold Half Zip is uploaded this week.

I love "just box it up and send it the outlet". I have that that about of lot of Lulu items as of late!

I have an En Route jacket from last year and it may be one of my most worn lulu items ever. It's awesome and really cute, I got complimented on it nearly every time I wore it. It's very warm even though it doesn't seem that it would be. It was my staple jacket for the NYC winter.

I prefer my diaper butt Tempos to any of this rubbish ;)

I like my En Route jacket too...it's different so lots of people compliment me on it. I don't unzip it that far, just a bit.

Spot on with your observations LLA. Definitely had a laugh at the 'box it back up' comment and student design.

En Route jacket - ick ick ick

Shorts - I don't get those dumpy shorts and it's such a waste of resources.

Just when you think LLL is back on track, they AREN'T! What's going on there Laurent?
