Our Story

When Brazilian designer Ilana Kugel was inspired to infuse her native roots into activewear, she quickly looked to partner up with industry expert Peter Koral to launch her collection to the world.  With Koral’s sharp intuition, he knew Kugel’s sophisticated edge combined with her understanding of function, fabrics, and form would elevate workout clothes as we know it and propel activewear into the spotlight of fashion.

Creative Director | Ilana Kugel

Versatility, sophistication, and figure flattering fabrics are top priority for Creative Director Ilana Kugel, who combines her native Brazilian flair with L.A. sensibility. Growing up on the spirited beaches and diverse streets of Rio de Janeiro, Kugel was inspired by her surroundings — from the sensual, organic shapes of The Lush Inland to the sleek lines of Rio’s modern architecture. With a thirst to express her cultural influences through fashion, she pursued an education in art and design at Universidade Anhembi Morumbi in Sao Paulo. She later uprooted to Los Angeles to unleash her creativity, talent, and vision in a city that’s home to some of the most influential artists and designers in the world.

Kugel quickly took to the California lifestyle, embracing a healthy, active way of life that undoubtedly fueled her passion for activewear.  With roots in swimwear design and construction, her expertise in elevating the female silhouette gives her a distinct edge in designing sexy, fashion forward activewear that effortlessly transitions from workout to night out and everything in between.

TECHNOLOGY

Evanesce by Koral

Koral’s signature fabric, Evanesce, is a high performance fabric that gives incredible support and serious stretch combined with compression technology. The slight compression supports muscles, reducing oscillation and muscle fatigue by improving blood flow. Softness is one of Evanesce’s most notable qualities, paired with water wicking and odor reducing abilities. These basic activewear staples are designed for all activities. Evanesce keeps you confident, cool, and comfortable throughout high-endurance workouts.

Jersey Mesh

Jersey Mesh is a highly flexible and breathable fabric offering optimal comfort. Made from Nylon and Lycra, our ventilated Jersey Mesh retains vivid color, even through high performance workouts and washings.

French Terry

With a highly absorbent loop pile on one side and a flat, smooth surface on the other, our French Terry is a perfect lightweight blend of cotton and elastane that provides comfort and conveys style.

Brushed Elastane

Our Brushed Elastane has the softness and comfort of cotton, but surpasses it in breathability, recovery and resilience. With the highest stretch tension of all raw textile materials, Brushed Elastane ensures your garments keep shape while you keep fit.

Modal

Smooth and soft on the skin, Modal is 50% more water absorbent than cotton. Resistant to pilling, fading and shrinkage, our modal tees and tanks are built to last, even through repetitive washings.

Stellar

Stellar is a high-tech Brazilian fabric that combines strength and softness of microfiber polyamide. Xtra Life Lycra gives this warp knit fabric stretch and light compression. Due to wet dye processing, the prints will never fade. Purple Cobra is paired with Koral’s signature fabric, Evanesce. Softness is one of it’s most notable qualities, accompanied by water wicking and odor reducing abilities.

Infinity

Koral’s revolutionary Infinity fabric inhibits the unbecoming bag-and-sag and keeps activewear garments looking fresh and new. Developed with Xtra Life Lycra, Infinity’s advanced protective technology resists chlorine and prevents fabric deterioration, thinning and shape loss. Infinity’s shiny texture brings edginess to any outfit.
