Our Vision


reflective jacket

VES•PER•TINE adj. 1) Activating, blossoming or flying in the evening.

Safety and style collide in Vespertine's Haute Réflecture® eco-chic reflective fashion collection, designed to have your back day and night. Our finely tailored designs, made in NYC from sustainable tech and luxury fabrics make you shine on the road and off. In other words, we make safety wear you'll love to wear.

We believe in slow transport: biking, walking, rowing, etc... and slow fashion. Our enduring styles are built to last with the highest quality fabrics, (100% recycled/recyclable ECO poly, British Mohair, etc...) and the brightest reflective material, visible within 2000' of cars' headlights. Yes, brightness matters, a lot! And not all reflective is equal. The farther the distance you are visible in the dark, the more time a car's driver has to react to you. This extra time is crucial, especially when cars are traveling at high speed.

Our vision of beautiful reflective wear was born in support of the flourishing of Bike Share Systems and cycling as transportation. We aim to inspire and empower cyclists in regular clothes who use the bicycle to get around, helping to save the planet one pedal at a time.

But our styles aren't only for transportation cyclists and e-bikes. Lounge at home, walk the dog, scoot to the train, push a stroller, jog to town, ride a moped, or sip a drink at a bar, Vespertine NYC has your back.

Sustainability is a core value for our company, from the end use of our designs, (to inspire and empower people-powered transport and exercise), to using recycled and up-cycled materials. We produce our collections locally and even bike to our studio.

Fundamentally, our Haute Réflecture® is head-turning, lust-worthy fashion. It just happens that it can also save your life.
