A couple of months ago we had the incredible honor of photographing Ilana Glazer for the Kordal Lived in Series!
Like many of us, I was introduced to Ilana through the genius of Broad City, a show that she and pal Abbi Jacobson created and starred in. For me, Broad City captured all of the strange, hilarious and soul-stirring parts of figuring out who you are in the weird and wonderful city of New York.
So when Ilana came to our Fort Greene shop last fall, we just about lost it! We shared that this year is Kordal's ten year anniversary and it would be such an honor to feature her in our Lived in Series to mark the occasion.
In our Lived in Series, we feature women that inspire us with their drive, talent and their genuine sense of self. It's women like Ilana that remind us of why we want to design clothing in the first place.
Fast forward a few months later and Ilana is rolling up to set in Crown Heights on her bike, and yes, she's just as cool and kind as you'd expect. She's generous with her time, has everyone cracking up and looks incredible in our knits - even on a humid 90 degree day. We got a chance to talk about pregnancy and healthcare, how styling informs her characters, and finding levity amidst existential challenges. We hope you enjoy the conversation!
The Celine tee, knitted In a beautiful blend of silk and alpaca, this classic tee has a distinct rib knit which perfectly molds to your body. We love the refined simplicity of this piece, accentuated texture, the slightly longer short sleeve, and the scoop neck. A fan favorite season after season it's officially part of our "Lived in Collection" which means it's so good we plan to keep it around for the long haul!Shop the Celine Tee
