lucy Summer Collection: Behind the Design

 

Summer, so close. One of the many splendors of summer we're gearing up for is being outside more. And if there were a time of year to celebrate your fitness, it's in the summer sizzle, in the water, the woods, the streets, the beach—anywhere. When temperatures rise, and sweat becomes inevitable, we turn to workout wear equivalent to the sundress, items that are lightweight, feminine, effortless. Bonus points for pops of color. The great outdoors, cooling fabrics, and bold color are just a few ingredients in lucy's summer collection.  Read on to hear what Keryn and her team have created to celebrate your fitness in this summer.

 

 

What was the collective inspiration behind this Summer season?

Taking your indoor workout outdoors. We focused on moisture-wicking fabrics that are slick-looking with a cooling feel. Vibrant, large-scale prints pop in a palette that reminds us of blue skies, sunshine, coral, lemonade—the juicy colors of summer. The season is also about Destination Anywhere, a travel collection of effortless, on-the-go essentials.

What are some differences between this collection and the previous Spring collection?

For starters, fabrics and silhouettes will keep you cooler. We also designed with layering in mind because we know you’re exercising outside and inside. Everything is versatile. The colors are energetic and strong while maintaining wearability; they're bold but still conducive to matching or mixing things up.

 

What colors and fabrics stand out?

Our Summer palette is a balance of brights with softer colors and neutrals. The colors meld together in our prints. Sapphire Blue and Azalea are two colors that are bold but not extreme, and also complimentary with different skin tones. We've mixed these brights with neutrals like Moss Green and Fossil Grey for an original look that is also timeless. Standout fabrics have quick-drying properties and are lightweight and anti-wrinkle, ready for the suitcase and any activity.

 

What is the leading print and its origin?

The Kaleidoscope print encompasses the energetic, carefree vibes of summer. It's interesting in a photograph, but you can get lost inside it in person. We loved it so much we made a grayscale version for those who want a toned-down print that's still fascinating.  This print is fun and flirty in our Mat and Move Legging paired with the Studio Hatha Bra.

 


What's unexpected in the collection?

A dress collection! Our new dresses range in silhouettes, from body-skimming to relaxed. Our Get Going button up dress multi-functions as a cover up before hot yoga and as a dress when you’re on-the-go.

 

There are many shorts and skirts this season, what's special about these shorter hemlines?

Our shorts have varying inseams so every woman can find a favorite length. Many of our summer shorts and skirts come in our signature lightweight woven fabric; it’s lightweight with ample stretch, also moisture-wicking and wrinkle-free. Once you wear and feel this fabric, you don't want to wear anything else in the summer heat.

 

 

One new styling tip for this summer?


We're already wearing the Destination Anywhere Tunic, which is ideal for layering over a workout outfit or for travel. The longer length provides just the right amount of coverage, and the fabric manages to be both airy and cozy.
