lucy Introduces Fall 2009 Collections for Yoga, Running and Training


PORTLAND, Ore.- JULY 30, 2009 – lucy activewear introduces the first of its Fall 2009 Collections today, kicking off the season with the feminine Mantra collection, lucy’s latest yoga designs created to inspire a sophisticated state of Zen. The collection features graceful, airy designs made of lightweight, natural cotton in a calm palette of faded pastels like lavender, aqua and pale yellow. Bold ethnic prints and graphics inspired by henna body art bring a global view to the collection, honoring the worldwide community created by yoga.

In August, lucy’s Back to (gym) Class collection arrives, offering inspiration as women move their workouts indoors. A Broadway dancer’s workout wardrobe was the muse, resulting in blouson styling and bold color blocked straps executed with strong performance features and energetic hues. For runners, lucy delivers the Pace collection featuring powerful fashion silhouettes in statement shades of cobalt and signal yellow. Seamless construction, moisture management and form-fitting designs offer comfort for strong performance. www.lucy.com/falllookbook
