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.

NGGH++

NGG joined the FARFETCH group in 2019, to leverage the groups innovative and technology focused

approach to the luxury fashion industry and to together explore unchartered territories. This approach led

NGG to create a spin-off of the group, called NGGH++, that represents a growth accelerator and an

incubator of new ideas, brands and businesses. This business will include several new projects in different

fields, including a creative hub with specialist functions around sports and sneakers. To build NGGH++ we

are looking to hire a brilliant team of experts who are passionate about their job, are curious and open-

minded, and are willing to join this new incredible chapter of our journey.
