Global fashion search platform Lyst just dropped the latest edition of its The Lyst Index, a quarterly report outlining what’s hot when it comes to fashion. While we’re already filling our shopping carts with quilted sandals, mini bags and printed sweaters (all hot per Lyst), it’s the top brands list that really caught our attention. Especially since Off-White is back in the top spot, despite Virgil Abloh’s well-documented absence from the brand’s Spring 2020 show.
Since the launch of the index two years ago, Balenciaga, Gucci and Vetements have made the list every quarter with both Balenciaga and Gucci consistently listed among the top three hottest brands. This quarter followed the same pattern as Balenciaga and Gucci ranked second and third, respectively. We aren’t at all surprised to see Versace jump from sixth place last quarter to fourth after Jennifer Lopez‘s epic turn on the brand’s Spring 2020 runway. But the fashion house that got the biggest bump was, drumroll please, Bottega Veneta, going from 37 all the way up to 16. (It probably helps that the brand’s padded sandals are the hottest product around.)
Check out the full top 20 list below to see if your favorite brand made the cut.
9. Saint Laurent
11. Stone Island
15. Dolce & Gabbana
16. Bottega Veneta
17. Alexander McQueen
