Most popular luxury brands in 2021

Lyst index

Gucci number 1, rise of Dior and Louis Vuitton, take off of queries on summer fashion… Here are the results of The Lyst Index report for the second quarter of the year. What are the most popular luxury brands in 2021?

For the fourth quarter in a row, Gucci continues to increase its popularity, as evidenced by the latest analysis carried out by the search engine Lyst for the period from April to June. The Italian brand is thus reaping the fruits of a powerful visibility strategy, between its hacking of Balenciaga, the launch of its Gucci Garden on the Roblox game, or the much publicized Gucci Beloved campaign on the set of James Corden. This success is in tandem with the financial results of the brand, which recorded a turnover up 24.6% to 2.17 billion euros in the first three months of the year.
While Kering’s flagship brand seems unbeatable, Dior and Louis Vuitton, in second and fourth place respectively, are gaining ground.
