Free Circle's Latest

FASHION HAS ALWAYS BEEN AN EMBODIMENT OF THE FUTURE. AND WE'VE ADDED A LITTLE TWIST - CYCLING.

Cycling to work – the best part of the day for those who do and an enticing prospect for those who think they just might. But walking into the office looking like you’ve just finished a pro cycling race – not so good.

Cue the eternal dilemma – do I dress elegant or sporty?

That’s how fashion brand Free Circle came about – an idea was born to design and produce clothing in which you’ll look elegant and stylish for a business meeting or evening out in the city, but which is also functional so you feel natural and safe when cycling. And comfortable at all times.


E-SHOP

Hopefully by now you’ve begun to share our passion and are perhaps wondering when you can actually get to try everything out for yourself. We have good news – our e-shop is now open!

Welcome and enjoy here!


GAINING
MOMEN
TUM

We have the highest respect for those who are truly expert at their craft. Our designs come from the hands of internationally acclaimed fashion designer, Monika Drápalová, our materials from those who are at the very cutting edge of textile innovation, Schoeller® Switzerland, our production processes are overseen by top of the class sports professionals for whom clothing that is made to last is paramount.

FOR WOMEN WHO LOVE
A BIT OF STYLE
FOR MEN WHO WISH TO
LOOK THE PART


WHAT'S IN
THE WORKS

You know that remarkable sensation of absolute freedom that fills your entire being when you start pedalling and you move forward and forward? That’s the feeling at Free Circle now – we are accelerating. We’ve taken part two of the prototypes that held the public in awe at Designblok Premiere Fashion Week and are now re-creating them for you. Turning them into outfits you can touch, feel, live with and live in…


LOOK
CLOSELY

We pay careful attention to the way you live on your bike – and off it. And whether it’s that morning coffee you’ve just spilled all over your shirt, a business meeting in the scorching heat of the office, being caught in an afternoon downpour or slinging your heavy backpack over your shoulder heading for an evening at the theatre, well - we’ve been there too. And designed this collection so that you don’t have to miss out on all the exciting things you’d like to fit into your day.

Every detail you’ll find on our clothing is testament to years of experience and careful planning. We’ve studied the way you sit and move on a bike, the weather conditions you ride in – and adjusted our designs accordingly. See that button? And that change in texture? Everything is there for a reason.

FABRICS
OF THE
FUTURE

Aluminium jackets, perforated dresses and reflective ponchos that turn into evening gowns – we’ve gone for it and left the well-trodden paths to the enjoyment of others.

The way fabrics can enhance our lifestyle is truly remarkable. So we’ve teamed up with the very best innovators like Schoeller® Switzerland to embody the future now. In answer to sweat, to the fear of not being seen, to a fall, or to the car that’s veering way too close to that enormous puddle, we’ve chosen fabrics that are:

FLEXIBLE, to let you move about freely
BREATHABLE, so you don’t feel like a walking greenhouse
ULTRALIGHT, enabling you to roll your poncho into a tiny bundle
RESISTANT, so your clothes won’t be damaged all too easily
REFLECTIVE, to keep you as safe as possible in the dark
WATER RESISTANT AND QUICK DRYING, so you won’t mind that light shower
AND EASY CARE, to get a potential stain off in a moment

FREE CIRCLE
IN THE
PRESS

Outfits that can be worn on and off the bike, designs that bring to life what one would think could only ever pertain to the realm of imagination - Free Circle's entry into the world of fashion has certainly not gone unnoticed. Can't wait to see that list getting longer as we grow!
