Lululemon didn’t have to look far for a partner in its newest men’s line. Roden Gray, an upscale boutique (also based in Lululemon’s hometown of Vancouver) collaborated with Lulu to create a seven-piece line of athleisure apparel built with technical features geared for being active.
While Lululemon has cemented its name in the fitness and activewear sphere, Roden Gray comes from the high-end fashion world, which shows in the line. Muted colors and form-fitting silhouettes are paired with innovative materials like Hi Impact Swift (which is water-resistant and supremely comfortable). It’s ideal if you wear Stan Smiths to brunch, then Whole Foods and then head to the rock climbing gym in the afternoon to get a workout in.
The clean aesthetic of the hoodie, bomber jacket, short and long sleeve tee, pants and shorts mean everything works seamlessly together and look great around town. But that’s not to say you can’t sweat in it. The line is every bit as active as the rest of Lululemon’s line.
We’d be remiss if we didn’t say this collaboration reminds us of Arc’Teryx’s Veilance line (sold at Mr. Porter’s to put it in perspective). But now instead of dropping $300 for a pair of pants from Veilance, you can snatch a pair of Lulu’s for just $198.
