Lululemon, the Canadian yoga clothing brand with 289 stores and 50 showrooms worldwide has finally coming to UAE. Majid Al Futtaim is planning to open between 15 and 20 Lululemon stores in the region within the next five years, with the first opening in Dubai this autumn.
Founded in Vancouver in 1998, Lululemon sells yoga-inspired fitness clothing for men and women. The deal with Lululemon is the latest coup for Majid Al Futtaim Fashion, which has signed similar licensing agreements with AllSaints and Abercrombie & Fitch.
The news has caused a stir among yoga fans.
However excited some may be, there is the possibility that Lululemon may have left it too late to delve into the UAE.
