Is the bottom of that shirt for real? Hahaha, wow. A seventh grader using a sewing machine for the first time could do better.

There, we put some ruffles on a shirt for you - are you happy now? Lol.

Are the Pace Rival Crop and the Sole Train. crops model's inner thigh photoshopped? It looks so weird.

God I am getting SO sick of these busy black/white patterns that ALL look the same.

Oh boy are all the shirts and tanks going to be this short, I hope not. The bottom of that shirt reminds of a beautiful sweater I bought from Anthropologie that has a sheer panel with stitched dots on the bottom of the sweater and I also have a top from there as well with sheer trim on the bottom which are a year old so LLL is behind the trend on this one.

So, LLA, to be optimistic, when do you think we could possibly see a turn around? If the fashion cycle takes 6 months, I think by Nov/Dec, they had enough time to see the public's reaction to the new look (boxy, unisex, and cheap), so is it possible we'll see something more like the old Lulu by June? Am I kidding myself?

Nothing in this upload is the least bit interesting to me. I've moved on to wearing other brands, but I do still check in in the hope that they'll return to their roots.

@Rise and Shine -If the sales/profit numbers are fine then they have no incentive to change. I think the design cycle is more like 9 months so it would be a long time before we'd see any meaningful change, if they were going to make changes. I think they need a couple of bad quarters of bad numbers before they'd do anything.

That Sole SS is almost sold out in all colors at my local store. I tried it on and it is very cute; a little short admitted, but the cut is very flattering.

It seems like they are following current fashion trends for women's RTW. The 90's are back big time with cropped shirts and boxy looks. It sure seems they have been following along. Likewise, the color palettes have followed along too with very dark colors. If that is the case, we may see some bright colors with more ruffles/feminine details which is what spring/summer is all about in rtw. I guess I see the thought process with following the trends... but I don't think lululemon is making a wise choice. Most rtw trends are hard for many people to pull off and I don't think women necessarily want their athletic wear to be 'on trend'. What set lululemon apart initially was their unique and creative approach in designs... by following trends it's hard to separate lululemon from every other brand out there. They need to get back to their roots.

The Sole Training crop in that Poseidon colour is nice, but everything else can easily be ignored. Very easily. I was in a store this weekend ( I can only go the three times a year that I travel to the US) and the whole feel was "drab"

Omg. That's what I was thinking, too! Lmao.

Agree! I can't pull off anything that's cropped, boxy or short, bc of my long torso and pear frame. I don't want to look "dumpy" thank you very much. I used to be embarrassed by going into lulu sometimes multiple times weekly, sometimes going to the two different stores in my city regularly, weekly! Now, I'm a much more functional human being whose happily curing the addiction. Although, keeping an eye on things. I'll assume they are doing well enough, but it's not bc of me...and my wallet couldn't be happier!

I actually don't mind them following RTW. I would like my workout clothes as well as casual stuff(I wear lulu outside of the gym) to be on trend. I know I'm in minority on this blog, but I like muted colors with occasional brights idea. I think it's easier to transition from gym to the street and to lunch or shop.
