URBAN CIRCUS

MAKE YOU STAND OUT

We develop clothing that makes users visible, respected and confident, so that everyone can be truly remarkable and experience the city freely.

OUR MANIFESTO

Urban mobility will liberate the city. They will make it healthier and more accessible. Playful and cheerful. Serene and peaceful. But only on one condition: that the space is shared in confidence. Cars, cyclists, e-scooterists, walkers or scooters, all are actors of this revolution. All must strive for unity, for balance.

In order to achieve this balance, what we can do is to change the way we are perceived in the city. What we can do is to be both visible and considered. What we can do is be remarkable.

With Urban Circus, serenely embrace the freedom to go. Be visible. Be beautiful. Be confident. Take charge of your look, and trade in your mackintosh for clothes of light.

Urban Circus. Be remarkable.

THE BEGINNINGS...

"It's yellow, it's ugly, it doesn't go with anything, but it can save your life".

We are in June 2008, and Karl Lagerfeld, absolute icon of fashion, poses in 4 x 3 format all over France for the Road Safety?

The message is simple, direct, and highly effective. The media are relaying the all-round campaign to "make the safety waistcoat and the warning triangle compulsory in order to better inform other drivers of the presence of a vehicle immobilised on the road and of its driver if he or she has to get out of the vehicle...". 

But this decree, promulgated by the government on 30 July 2008, does not concern two-wheeled vehicles (motorised or not), even though the latter also expected to make themselves visible. Many cyclists and motorcyclists are starting on their own initiative to wear a yellow waistcoat.

Between 2010 and 2016, the number of people killed on bicycles increases by 22%, according to Road Safety figures.

2016 : Urban Circus is launched, with the aim of helping to bring down the figures for two-wheeler accidents, thanks to a collection of reflective clothing specially dedicated to urban mobility.

2016
