lululemon has partnered with pro surfer Mark Healey to create the limited-edition Moon Drift Collection, which puts versatility and longevity at the forefront of design. Inspired by Mark’s high-intensity life, the Moon Drift collection fuses performance with a modern design build, introducing an outdoor collection that’s as practical as it is stylish.
Moving from concept to reality, lululemon’s design team strove to find elegant solves for water repellency, sun protection, ventilation, and mobility to create a purpose-built capsule that could keep up with Mark’s lifestyle: from dryland training to surfing and everything in between. Mark was involved in the process, working closely with the lululemon design team to fine-tune every detail. Once prototypes came in, he personally tested each piece, using the intensity of his day-to-day life as the basis of a technical performance standard.
lululemon’s SVP of Design and Concepts, Ben Stubbington, says “We saw Mark’s demands of product as an opportunity for robust, in-house, and real- life testing. We knew if we could create something that keeps up with Mark, it would keep up with anyone. The other side is the connection to self and breath that Mark maintains to stay grounded. We translated this into the artwork, title, and colour of the collection.”
The end result is something that truly overdelivers. As Mark explains, “It’s about versatility. This is gear that performs in the environment, feels comfortable, and transitions seamlessly into everyday life.” The 10-piece capsule includes quick-drying tops; a chlorine and salt-resistant rash guard; pants with strategically placed mesh fabric for ventilation; a water-repellent jacket that won’t cling to wet skin; and shorts that pull double duty in the water and training on land.
In short, the collection is what Mark calls “a bridge between two worlds, purposefully designed for longevity and practicality without sacrificing style, fit, and innovation.”
This limited-edition Moon Drift collection retails from SGD158 and is available in Singapore at lululemon’s ION Orchard store (2 Orchard Turn, B1-11, 238801) and online at lululemon.com
