Does it get any better than finding workout wear that both looks AND feels great? Bridging the gap between active apparel and fashion forward clothing is Ula Sport, an emerging line of athletic clothing. Based out of Brooklyn and designed by former stylist, Gonca Gul, this travel-friendly line of neutral, rayon jersey knits are meant to wrap your body in a comfortable, flexible, and flattering way.
The Ula Sport collection incorporates age-old elements reminiscent of spinning sufis, tai chi, capoeira, and ancient martial arts. The garments are made and fabrics hand-dyed in Bali by a small group of Balinese women. In return, Ula has created a fund to support these women’s children by paying for them to go to school.
Within the carefully crafted details on each piece, is evidence that the collection was inspired by human movement. From open back tops with built-in bras, to wrap pants with long belt ties, and all the necessary basics in between. A must try on, the Ula Sport collection’s beauty is best illustrated on the body.
Here are a few of our favourites:
This tank top with intricate back cut out and knot detail is fantastic on! We especially like it with the adjustable wrap skirt that can be worn high or low waisted, and even converted to a breezy summer dress.
This basic cami with ruched sides can be taken from a classic tank top to an adorable crop top. Paired with comfortable leggings that are able to be worn high waisted, or folded down and casual.
The finished touch of a great yoga outfit is a light cover up, much like this flowy, long sleeve batwing sweater.
This stunning tank top with an open-work back allows you to see muscles in motion, plus an inner bra and wide back strap offer support and camouflage for a bra. We matched it with these off white, slightly harem pants with long tie belt and the option of leg tie detail.
With pieces that are meant to take you from Hatha class onto the rest of your day, we can’t help but adore the versatility and uniqueness of Ula Sport. Head over to our Semperviva Lifestyle Store on West 4th to see the collection for yourself! We’re sure you’ll love it just as much as we do.
