Our beliefs

Consumers are now “buying into” rather than “buying from”. At the heart of value creation for modern consumer brands is the new value system defining consumer culture: more conscious, more mindful, more sophisticated, better informed.
There is a theory brewing that plays into Redrice Ventures proposition, that as some form of normality returns the aspiration of consumers will have little to do with more more more, rather it will revolve around better. An interesting aspect of ‘better’ is that it generally starts with confidence. Not the shouty veneer we see all too often, but the inner resilience born of a true vision and a strategy beyond hope.
Premium brands deliver a higher value add to its users, a value beyond utility. The end benefit is a combination of perceived superior product functionality and the emotional reinforcement of its association. While premium brands almost always command a price premium being a premium brand is not a function of price per se. Simply being expensive is not enough to earn the moniker of premium.
Having a brand purpose is more important than ever before, if for no other reason than as guidance in times of great uncertainty. During the current crisis brands (the good ones) are recognising the need to act purposefully, not just broadcast a lofty brand purpose. There’s a difference.

Our сhallenger brands

Castore was founded by Phil and Tom Beahon, two brothers from Liverpool who abandoned promising careers in sport and then the city, to start a premium sportswear brand.

“We’d been living in sportswear for our entire lives. We had an athlete’s perspective on it. And, although we found the quality of mass-market sportswear to be quite good, there didn’t seem to be many brands going above and beyond”.

The world is better when women succeed. Founder Joanna Dai’s eight year finance career in New York and London instilled a sense of effortless style with cool attitude, but lacked the comfort and ease from her Californian upbringing. Yet, when it came to workwear, she felt increasingly discouraged by a market where fabrics restricted movement, designs lacked function and versatility, and quality mismatehed value. She had the vision of a brand where none of these factors were compromised – a brand of tailored performance wear where comfort empowers confidence.

War Paint’s purpose is to break the stigma that make-up is solely for women. They’re about making men feel comfortable to shout about wearing make-up. Founder, Danny Grey, has body dysmorphic disorder and has always felt that make-up helped him cope with his illness. He is passionate about helping men speak out and cope with mental health issues.
