Koral: sophisticated activewear from L.A.
Jan 19, 2017
Koral cites integrity as its core strength and the sporty elements of the label have, indeed, been rigorously thought through. Designer Ilana Kugel, who grew up in Brazil, and the industry expert Peter Koral combine Brazilian sexiness with a Californian obsession with sport. The resultant hybrid strikes a perfect happy medium. The brand unites sophisticated design with a high level of performance in a playful, fun-loving way.
’New Wave’ is the title of the collection that will set the tone in summer 2017. The Koral summer collection is geared towards the rigid lines and colours of the city. The prevailing colours here are therefore white, bisque (an off-white, biscuit-coloured hue) and claret shades that give the wine tones within the colour a light, chocolate frosting this season. Anyone feeling peckish at this point can indulge their appetite – provided they don’t lose a sense of balance in sport. The collection boasts sophisticated details and highly functional pieces that ensure you will look as good in the gym as you do when out and about. Cleverly integrated mesh inserts, elastic straps and camouflage prints give the collection a certain edge.
Kitted out with the Eternal, Evanesce and Koral Infinity tech, the label’s athleisure pieces feature all the refinements imaginable when it comes to performance wear. Quick-drying, anti-pilling, UV protection, odour control, compression and fast moisture wicking properties are just some of the benefits from the L.A.-based brand.
You can find Koral at PREMIUM Berlin in Hall 2.
