Retrosuperfuture is distributed in more than 20 countries and is appreciated by celebrities like Beyoncé, Rihanna, Lady Gaga, Nicki Minaj, Dua Lipa, Kanye West, Cristiano Ronaldo and Yoko Ono, and has collaborated on special projects with Off-White, Gosha Rubchinskiy, Paco Rabanne, APC, Carhartt, Vans and, more recently, with Italian rapper Ghali.
Red Circle has an investment portfolio with equity interests in various sectors, from digital tech, for example with the H-Farm start-up incubator, to bio tech, with EcorNaturaSì, Italy’s leading producer and distributor of organic and bio-dynamic products.
