How frustrating is it to put on a sporty-but-chic Lululemon outfit for your morning run, only to have it go unseen because you’re up and running before the sun? Or what about when you finally convince your coworkers to skip (okay, delay) happy hour in favor of an evening jaunt around Central Park, but it’s too dark for your crew to appreciate your coordinated cool racerback and pace rival skirt?
Well, #runnerproblems be gone, because Lululemon’s new capsule collection, dubbed Lucent, will make sure you shine bright no matter the hour. The four items—tights, shorts, a jacket, and a tank—all feature an innovative new design with reflective threading that becomes a print itself.
So instead of bulky reflective zippers or giant shiny patches, these pieces have flattering, strategically placed mesh panels and a cute floral design that gets high boho-feminine marks from us. “We designed the Lucent collection to seamlessly blend function with beauty in a new light,” Antonia Iamartino, Lululemon’s future concepts designer, told us. “Through a rigorous design and testing process, we were able to innovate—and elevate—how we use reflective thread, taking it from a strictly technical purpose to an elegant design element without compromising fabric functionality.”
The collection will be available online and in stores for a limited run starting March 15, with prices ranging from $88 to $198. Dark morning runs? No problem. Bring it on, Daylight Saving Time.
