I may have British lineage, but this week it’s evident that I’m not from London. How do we know this? Per Wikipedia…
Roksanda Ilinčić is a Serbian fashion designer based in London, England. She owns a fashion brand named ROKSANDA, which she introduced in 2005, on London Fashion Week. Today, Roksanda is one of the most recognizable fashion designers in London.
Today, I googled who the eff Roksanda was and what in the world she did to warrant a Roksanda x lululemon collaboration. If I were from London, maybe I would have heard of her before this week. I have not. It’s tough to ignore the Roksanda collection, so let’s go through it front and center before I try and move through the rest of this post like it’s a normal week in lululand.
Per lululemon, homegirl is “known for her modern, feminine silhouettes and trademark colourblocking,” and she “infuses this collaboration with her signature craftsmanship.”
I mean, it’s definitely not the norm for my personal style and there are certainly some billowy pieces that I’m definitely not into, but quite honestly I’m pretty into some of the black/navy pieces with the yellow contrast. Of course most items are at an elevated price point, common with collaborations, but then the rest of it seems peanuts when you see that there’s a $1000 jacket in the mix.
I suppose if there are 44356 different ways to wear the Inner Expanse Infinity Coat, then the average cost per “item” is reasonable(ish). Right?
The Face Forward Define Jacket ($178) gave me hope for a hot minute, until I noticed the puffy sleeves. Someone call Jerry Seinfeld! While the pink/marvel/honeycomb isn’t necessarily wowing me, I will admit that the black/navy/sonic yellow is pretty sharp.
Are the Break New Ground Tights in my shopping cart? Yes, yes they are. I admit it.
5 Faves & a Dud: 10/22/19 Edition
Favorite #1: In Movement Tight ($108) in Brushed Spray Dye Lunar Purple Intergalactic
If I exercise self control and buy ONLY ONE item from this week’s upload, these are undeniably it. I love purple. I love celestial-ish looking prints. I love these tights.
Favorite #2: Speed Up Short *Long Updated Fit ($58) in Ice Cave
Also uploaded in the shorter version, Speed Up Short 2.5″.
Favorite #3: All Tied Up Tank ($44) in Short Serve Stripe White Black
Favorite #4: Align Crop ($88) in Garnet
Favorite #5: Ebb to Train Tight *Wash ($118) in Marvel/Black/Black
Usually I gloss over the Ebb to Whatever options, but I really like the subtle striped gradient on these 🙂
The Dud: YOU tell ME!
There’s obviously a lot going on with the Roksanda collection this week, but that means it was also prime time to sneak in some seriously simple snoozy designs, like the All Yours Zip Hoodie, All Yours Hoodie, and All Yours Crew.
I can sit here and doze off as if the Dud isn’t going to come from the SE capsule, but we know it all is. But, I can’t choose. The skirt? The onesie? The Jacket? Drop your least favorite in the comments section!
Garnet’s Garnering All of My Attention
So I only featured one piece so the entirety of this post didn’t look like a glass of red wine, but I am loving all the Garnet options we are presented with this week:
- Fast & Free Tight II 25″ Non-Reflective Nulux
- Pace Rival Crop
- Perfectly Oversized Crew
- Fast and Free Tight II 28″ Non-Reflective
- Align Short 4″ & Align Short 6″
Do you ever have one of those days when you blink at 6:30a and suddenly it’s 10p? Yeah, that’s me today. Drag it out of bed for a 5-miler before 7:00a. Race to work by 9. Vendor presentation at 10. Vendor lunch at 12. Conference Call at 4:30. Vendor dinner/drinks at 6. Don’t get home until 9. Blog until 10:13, longer if I don’t step away from the laptop right now.
Here’s hoping this food coma I’m in right now helps me get a good tempo run in tomorrow. Because truffle fries and sushi are the pre-workout meal staples of champions, amirite?
