After the reign of the house of Gucci, it’s now Balenciaga’s turn to take the position of most popular, or at least most sought-after label online. With its bold fashion designs, some of the buzzy label’s pieces, including the Neo Classic bag, are now considered the most coveted in the world.

Balenciaga has held this top spot for the second consecutive quarter, appealing to an ever-widening audience thanks to its numerous collaborations, including “Fortnite” and “The Simpsons,” and its advance into the metaverse. And the label is not expected to stop there, with a highly anticipated collaboration on the way with Yeezy Gap, a project featuring the ultra-famous Kanye West and Gap.

Founded back in 1921, Gucci combines extravagant Italian craftsmanship with current design trends to produce some of the most noteworthy pieces in fashion worldwide. Known for their stylish textiles such as Flora (specially requested by Princess of Monaco, Grace Kelly), Gucci currently markets ready-to-wear clothing, watches, fashion jewelry, handbags, shoes, accessories, makeup, and perfumes today.

What does Gucci mean?

Gucci has developed over the years as a symbol of abundance representing not only the luxury fashion house, but also as a form of slang. Its most common vernacular usage is to describe something that is “doing wel’”, and it can be seen in tracks by various established singers and rappers such as Cardi B and Kanye West, in addition to viral artists such as Lil Pump.

Additionally, Gucci’s history with boldness and opulence has similarly meant that it has lent itself over as a consistent source of inspiration for many rappers and hip-hop artists – leading to the development of this slang.

3.PRADA

Moncler is an Italian luxury fashion brand that specializes in down jackets and other cold-weather clothing. Moncler was founded in 1952 by René Ramillon when he began selling quilted jackets to men working in the mountains near Grenoble in France. The brand name comes from an abbreviation of Monestier-de-Clermont, the alpine town where the company was founded.

How can you tell a fake Moncler?

Many fakes and counterfeit items use cheap and low-quality materials that don’t last. They also lack Moncler’s attention to detail in terms of stitching and cut, which is why many counterfeits appear “wonky” or crooked.

However there are some very convincing fake Monclers that can be difficult to tell apart from the real thing. Look in particular at the quality of the stitching and embroidery on the Moncler badge.

Modern Moncler jackets also include an authenticity code on the label, which you can check on Moncler’s website to make sure your jacket is legit.

How much does a Moncler cost?

New Moncler jackets range from $750 (approx £550) for a women’s down quilted vest to over $7,700 (£5,700) for the top-of-the-range men’s down mountain jacket.

You can get Moncler items cheaper if you buy last season’s styles when they’re on sale from third-party retailers or by buying second-hand. However, there are many fakes out there so make sure you’re buying from a reputable seller.

With over 90 years of expertise, Fendi is one the most successful fashion houses worldwide, famed for its luxurious fur creations and exquisite leather goods. The Italian brand prides itself on being entirely made in Italy, so check your pieces—if they’re made elsewhere (e.g. made in China), you’re dealing with a fake!

To honor and celebrate Italian craftsmanship, in 2020 the brand launched the “Hand in Hand” project, inviting 20 ateliers, one for each Italian region, to reinterpret the iconic Baguette bag, showcasing their unique savoir-faire.

Founded in 1961, Yves Saint Laurent is one of the most prominent fashion houses of the 20th century. Originally a House of Haute Couture, Yves Saint Laurent revolutionized the way fashion and society merge and interact in 1966 with the introduction of high-end made clothes produced on a larger scale than the exclusive collections.

Since its inception, Yves Saint Laurent has held influence both inside and outside the fashion industry. Over the years, its founder, the couturier Yves Saint Laurent secured a reputation as one of the 20th century’s foremost designers and personalities.

The Maison was the first one to be revolutionary, and this spirit is a fundamental part of its DNA.

Founded by Gianni Versace in 1978, the house of Versace perfectly blends loud and flashy prints with a classy and luxurious aesthetic. The Versace Medusa logo has helped gain the brand recognition worldwide and was inspired by the floor ruins of an area where Versace and his siblings played as children.

The Italian brand markets premium and bold ready-to-wear clothing, leather shoes, and exquisite accessories. The success of the brand has led to other ventures such as Palazzo Versace (a chain of luxury hotels), and another fashion line titles ‘Versus,’ aimed at younger customers.

10.BOTTEGA VENETA

The Italian leather goods company is a pinnacle of quality, and each piece is intended to meld into the buyer’s lifestyle seamlessly.

From the iconic Intrecciato woven leather accessories, to the sleekness of each ready-to-wear collection, Bottega guards the threshold of opulence and taste.

The core ideals of Bottega still stand in 2020, which hold that its items should not only be durable in the face of wear for years to come, but must also remain relevant in style throughout the life of its loyal clientele.

Perhaps the current success of Bottega Veneta is owed to the minimal, but precise approach that Lee brings to the table. In an interview with Vogue in 2018 he described the brand as “a heightened aspirational reality,” stressing also the importance of teamwork within the company and a minimal approach to celebrities and branding.

He displays a keen understanding of the label’s core and the brand now has an air about it that feels both genuine and exalted, which is no doubt working for luxury consumers.
