I’ve been counting down the days until the end of next week since the beginning of October, and it has nothing to do with Thanksgiving. I’ve always been more of a Black Friday kind of girl (well, actually, I prefer Cyber Money for the obvious reason of not having to leave my couch, but you get the point). I love the sales, I love the resulting haul videos, and most of all, I love the limited edition collections that come out in time for the discounter’s dream holiday. This time around, the collection is coming from Lululemon: they’re launching an all-black line of exercise clothes that are anything but boring.

As you may already know, I’m an all-black everything kind of girl, so this collection is right up my alley. What’s particularly great about this line is that, while it is indeed all-black and therefore a perfect match for the rest of your pre-existing workout wardrobe, it’s got a little something special: it includes reflective snakeskin print that stays subtle in the daylight, but glows against headlights. That means night runners can do away with those neon reflective vests in favor of something a bit more stylish.

The collection is a bit on pricier side (it ranges from $68 for a hat to $298 for running tights), but that’s to be expected given the company’s push to raise prices and quality of product all around, especially in the aftermath of Sheer Yoga Pants-gate of 2013.

If the price doesn’t scare you off, or if you just want to torture yourself by looking at what you can’t have, take a look at the a sneak peek of some of the collection’s offerings:
