Posh fabrics, fearless design, expert tailoring and thoughtful versatility. What's missing from Koral Activewear's premium fashion-forward apparel? Only the sun-drenched Rio de Janeiro beaches that inspire Creative Director Ilana Kugel.
Created by industry expert, Peter Koral, and visionary Brazilian designer, Ilana Kugel. When Illana was living an active, wellness-focused lifestyle in sunny LA that she realised how hard it was to find workout wear that balanced style, fit and function perfectly. That’s when she realised her experience as a swimwear designer, passion for healthy living and understanding of the female body could lead to something beautiful - something that integrated completely into a woman's lifestyle. Soon, she’d designed a line filled with feminine silhouettes, edgy day-to-night pieces and luxe athleisure wear made from high-performance technical fabric under the brand name Koral Activewear, which made its official debut in 2014.
Why we love it:
We have a crush on LA-based Koral Activewear. It started with their chic day-to-night Lustrous Leggings and spun out of control from there. Koral Activewear interprets Kugel's Brazilian roots with urban sophistication, never compromising on performance. The brand's modern tailoring, shiny details and first-class fabrics give a nod to Kugel's design background in the swimwear industry. Need proof? Koral Activewear's Infinity Fabric is made with Xtra Life LYCRA® Spandex, which is ten times more durable than regular spandex and resists chlorine, fabric deterioration and shape loss. Yes please.
Koral's Lustrous High Rise Leggings are a hero piece. From Pilates and barre, to spin and circuits, they’re built to withstand rigorous workouts, with a lustrous shine that looks great dressed up with heels. Available in a range of on-trend shades, you’ll never have to worry about them fading thanks to the brand’s chlorine-resistant, colour absolute technology.
