2017 is officially headed towards its end. And, my my! This was a year of some ground-breaking and aptly revolutionizing fashion trends for both men and women. The flashy, ostentatious and flamboyant sense of styling was pushed to the peripheries and creative art directors of renowned fashion brands embraced the day-like practical wardrobe styling as the dominant in-trend vibe for their clothing lines. With practical clothing being the center of fashion runways this year, the top millennial clothing brands followed the suit, thus fashion finally made its peace with comfort wear. As the fashion runways move forward to the trends of the next year, let’s have a look back to past 12 months to see which clothing brands were the most successful this year in the market.
1- Louis Vuitton
For the year 2017, Louis Vuitton ranked the highest among global luxury brands of clothing and accessories. Not only in the Sates, Louis Vuitton was huge this year all across the globe. And while, the brand’s collaboration with Supreme may have caught attraction of many sports lovers, it is the inclusion of other cultures and the celebration of diversity in their prints, motifs and patterns that make Louis Vuitton one of the most well-to-do luxury clothing brand globally.
Originally known for its Hollywood-approved trench coats, the British luxury brand Burberry is also among those high fashion brands that made it to the top at sales chart for their clothing in 2017. One may think that this has quite a lot to do with fashion runways re-embracing the camel color and long trench coast trend this year. But, we also think that Burberry never losses touch with its roots when it comes to dish out new designs – and this just might be the think its loyal customers value the most.
Italian luxury brand Gucci was one of the leading clothing brands this year to pay homage to the 70s fashion style. From plaids, to long coats, to statement knitwear, Gucci had introduced some amazing retro and vintage styles in clothing. No wonder, the brand did amazing globally and is ranked one of the most successful luxury clothing brands of the year 2017.
The name of elegance and luxury, Chanel is always a class apart when it comes to clothing, accessories, or even fragrances. Founded by Coco Chanel, the brand currently has Karl Lagerfeld as its creative designer and it looks like Lagerfeld is so far quite successful in keeping up the elegant legacy of the brand. Chanel – no surprise – was one of the best-selling luxury fashion clothing brands for women this year.
There has been a constant, steady and impressive growth of luxury designer brand Hermes worldwide since the last two years. Hermes Berkins are still considered a thing of beauty and is one of the most sought-after and appreciated luxury handbags among the chic and classic fashionistas. This year, Hermes has jumped forward two spots from their last year’s ranking with their clothing lineup. Soon enough, it would beat all other competitors.
