Lululemon Wannabe Fake Athleta Black Skirt Over Running Pants 560

This is a pair of Lululemon wannabe fake Athleta black skirt over running pants. I wasn’t aware of Athleta until a friend in New York told me about an Athleta store that had opened there. Apparently, they used to be an online retailer until they were bought by Gap.

Here is a full view of the front of the pants. It is made of a similar fabric but it is stiffer and not as comfortable as Luon.

I wonder how Athleta is doing. There are so many companies that have blatantly copied Lululemon’s design features. Does anybody know more about Athleta?

This is a pair of Lululemon wannabe fake baby groove yoga pants that I spotted today at Target here in Vancouver.

Here is a full view of the front of the pants. You can see the purple stripe around.

These are really adorable but of course, cheap imitations of the real groove pants! I just thought it was so funny to see these for babies! Has anybody else seen these?

Lululemon Wannabe Fake Leo Star Athletica Celadon Green Top 350

This is a Lululemon fake wannabe Leo Star Athletica celadon green top with back pocket. There are a few companies here in Vancouver that are suspiciously similar to Lululemon.

This is a Vancouver based company (eg: Leo Star, One Tooth,  J76). I have seen a couple of their stores. This yoga top looks  similar to the Deep V top. Their jackets also look very similar to Lululemon styles.

What they do offer that is different from Lululemon is a maternity line, dress skirts and dresses. I was surprised to learn that they have quite a few stores here in BC, a couple out of province and one in Hong Kong even.

Here is a full view of the front of the top. The fabric is very similar in texture and weight to the kind Lululemon uses for their top.

This is a close up view of the bottom of the back. You can see a fold over pocket. That is also similar to what has been seen on Lululemon’s tops.

This is a view of the inside of the top. It is bra lined with a soft beige fabric, just as Lululemon’s top is.

And here is the stamped label inside the pants. That looks familiar as well! This is a size 4.

IMGP2414 Lululemon Wannabe Fake Leo Star Athletica Celadon Green Top 350

Here is a separate tag that says that it was Made in China.

IMGP2415 Lululemon Wannabe Fake Leo Star Athletica Celadon Green Top 350

I wonder how many people have bought these tops thinking that they will have the same style and quality of Lululemon?! I think they do a pretty good copy job, considering. Of all of the wannabe companies, I think that Leo Star Athletica does the best in terms of quality. Have you ever bought Leo Star Athletica?

Lululemon Fake Wannabe One Tooth Black Whisper Yoga Top 340

This is a Lululemon fake or wannabe black ‘whisper’ yoga top that has a front crossover. I found this in a thrift store.

Here are a couple of photos of the One Tooth store that is not too far from where I live. Sorry for the window glare! Whenever I go past the store, there always seems to be some sale, so I guess they have their customers.

I have to admit that One Tooth does a pretty good Lululemon imitation in some items. They boast that all of their items are Made in Canada. They now have over twenty stores across North America and offer franchise stores. What do you think? Good fake? Imitation is the sincerest form of flattery?
