New Guards Group is the home to 9 international luxury brands: Marcelo Burlon County of Milan, Off-
White c/o Virgil Abloh, Palm Angels, Unravel Project, Heron Preston, Alanui, Kirin Peggy Gou,
Opening Ceremony and Ambush. We work with the understanding that fashion and luxury can be
different: community-based, quality-driven, collaborative, truly global and quick. Our brands and
products stem from creative and managerial innovation and the philosophy of Made in Italy. We're
redefining the way luxury is conceived, communicated, and shared. Where others see limits, we see
goals. NGG is part of the FARFETCH Group and recently created a spin off business NGG++ that will
be a growth accelerator and an incubator of new ideas, brands, and businesses.

Our new office in Via Turati is a strategic hub, and home to all the NGG staff functions. Turati is where
the behind the scenes driving force of NGG is brought to life; this is harmonised with the archive
exhibits of brand collaborations found throughout the office.
