The figure you are referring to up there is called a circumcircle - it's not esoteric as such, it's a fairly basic process in geometry. But no doubt it was adopted by those gentlemen to convey a sense of 'the occult'.
The recent trend for appropriating elements of occult symbols in fashion I see in parallel to the goth/post-punk revival that's been going on for the last five years (http://www.asgerjuellarsen.com/). The peculiar geometric symbols that pop up here and there in fashion, both very minimalist and sort of mysterious (like the circumcircle) I think come from (as often with fashion prints) the graphics of music albums. I sort of relate all this to the trend for witch-house and the turn to industrial sounds in minimal techno.
