You probably already know and love lululemon–the geniuses behind some of the hippest and most functional exercise apparel out there. But now Baltimore has a new reason to flock to the Harbor East shop this holiday season: The Baltimore Love Project Capsule Collection. That’s the name for the 52 unique garments being designed by local artist Michael Owen with Baltimore-specific imagery that will be available exclusively at the Harbor East location for a limited time. The collection gets released this Thursday, and is likely to fly off the shelves. So we recommend you fly down to the harbor yourself to make sure you don’t miss out.
Owen’s designs will grace lululemon’s Women’s Power Y Tank, Cool Racer Back Tank and Men’s 5 Year Basic Tee. The big release on Thursday (November 13th) will feature a meet and greet with the artist himself, and a VIP cocktail and shopping reception. Light food and drinks will be provided by Teavolve and a percentage of the proceeds will go towards Michael Owen and The Baltimore Love Project. The Baltimore Love Project is Owen’s self-initiated project of 20 love-themed murals connecting people and communities across Baltimore City.
“I was excited to work with lululemon on such a Baltimore-centric design,” says Owen. “I meet people all the time that have such an affinity for this town and I wanted to create something for them that expresses that pride while maintaining a local feel.” Well, as people with the affinity of which he speaks, we’ve got to say we’re glad he took the project on. And we’ll be extra glad when we can wear our new (Baltimore-themed) lululemons all over town– whether jogging the harbor or stretching out at Charm City Yoga.
The reception for the Baltimore Love Project Capsule Collection will be held Thursday, November 13th from 7:30pm-9pm. Lululemon Harbor East is located at 820 Aliceanna St. For more information, visit www.lululemon.com.
