The transparent shopfront visually connects the store with the lively neighborhood of central, opening it up to all walks of life. Materials such as natural oak wood, terrazzo and white painted finish have been applied in the interior design to create an airy and inviting space. Inspired by the unique history of Pottinger Street, light art was created and will be installed in the shop to celebrate the richness of local culture and heritage.

To pay tribute to ambassadors and professional athletes, the new store features the first Athlete Wall in Hong Kong, which displays photos of five lululemon ambassadors and athletes from around the world, including three Hong Kong representatives – elite runner Ngai Kang, Hong Kong No. 1 tennis player Eudice Chong, and 2-time Olympic swimmer Camille Cheng.

These photographs will be on display alongside the Beach Volleyball uniform of Team Canada and Team USA worn at Olympics, and autographed golf club by Lydia Ko, golfer and two-time Olympic medalist.
