Where to buy lululemon’s Lunar New Year collection
Lunar New Year is here, and lululemon wants you to work out accordingly.
Whether you're celebrating Lunar New Year for the first time or have held annual celebrations since you can remember, you'll realise there's one type of clothing that hasn't quite fit the bill: activewear. It's easy enough to find dressy attire to celebrate in, but what happens if you want to celebrate the cultural event and work up a sweat at the same time?
Well, you're in luck. Canadian activewear icon lululemon has introduced a limited edition Lunar New Year collection that will have you feeling appropriately festive AND ready to rock your next workout. Lunar New Year, or Chinese New Year, is a huge celebration that marks the first day of the new year in the Chinese calendar. So start the year off strong by getting stronger yourself!
There are four pieces in the collection, which is comprised of a sports bra, two pairs of leggings and a pair of shorts. All the items feature a red floral print that was hand drawn to capture the feeling and meaning of Lunar New Year and then applied to the fabric.
The overall campaign is called "Practice Takes Practice", and the underlying message is to encourage everyone who purchases a garment to embrace lifestyle practices – knowing that sometimes things take time.
In addition to the pieces of clothing, stores in Asia will also stock red envelopes containing messages that link together Chinese cultural elements with lifestyle practices. The giving of red envelopes is considered good luck in China and is believed to bestow happiness and good fortune on the receiver.
Some of the practices within these envelopes include discovery, love, patience, consistency, endurance, mental clarity, fortitude, sharing, renewal and discipline. Despite it being the first Lunar New Year collection that lululemon has ever produced, we're pleased to note that it celebrates the event appropriately.
You can purchase the collection online at lululemon, and if you're feeling the Lunar New Year spirit you can also get your hands on collections like MAC Cosmetics' 2018 Lunar New Year range to really get into the festivities.
