Luxury brands taking the fashion world by storm

As this year winds to a close, you might be curious to know about how some of the most glamorous brands influenced the fashion industry over the past twelve months.

While the spotlight is still on famous brands like Gucci, Prada and Chanel, other brands have also taken the fashion industry by storm. 

In this article we will take a look at a few select luxury brands, the pinnacle of their designs and what they stand for.

Here we explore some of the year’s fashion highlights, from Coperni’s most iconic show of 2022 and Anna Octobers’ celebration of femininity to the fabrics behind The Row.

The Row

Many luxury brands around the world craft their products in Italy, this being one of the most respected clothes labels in the fashion industry due to their high-quality craftsmanship and materials.

The Row, a luxury brand that creates clothes in Italy where its competitors, such as Valentino, Marni and Zegna, also sources the country’s high quality silk, cotton and wool.

Founded by Mary-Kate and Ashley Olsen in 2006, it explores simple shapes and provides timeless looks, recently showcasing 14 outfits for fall.

Last year, it launched a trio of hand-blended oils carved from the elusive essence of Sandalwood. The trio was created in collaboration with L’Oeil du Vert, a fragrance company with the sole intention of exploring the botanical world through its aromatic oils, and was inspired by the phrase "Pasa-Thea Cale" in mind, meaning "one beautiful to all." The triad consists of an R Oil, O Oil and W Oil including Tobacco leaves, rose, Sandalwood, burnt Esfand seeds and Lily. 


Sebastien Meyer and Arnaud Vaillant founded Coperni in 2013, reflecting how much the pair have achieved with the brand over the last decade. 

Their focus is on creating minimalistic and chic clothes that are easy to wear. They use unlikely fabrics like alpaca wool which has a few benefits over the use of cashmere and mohair: its lack of lanolin means reduced risk of allergies and is light and airy with comfortable fibres.

This Parisian fashion brand is most known for its iconic Spring Summer 2023 show in Salle des Textiles during Paris Fashion Week.

On September 30, the audience at The Musee des Arts et Metiers saw model Bella Hadid sprayed with Fabrican’s sprayable, liquid fibre.

Hadid’s body was covered with Fabrican’s spray-on fabric made up of natural and synthetic fibres. This included wool, mohair, cotton, nylon and cellulose, suspended in a polymer solution.

Malene Birger

Malene Birger is an international brand that puts its own spin on the contemporary. The Birger style is aimed at fans of bohemian and Scandinavian styles.

Creative Director of Malene Birger, Maja Dixdotter, states on the official website: “I want women wearing our designs to feel comfortable, conscious and strong.”

Their festive edit demonstrates a curated selection of refined dresses, mules and shoulder bags perfect for every occasion. And their ‘Made With Care’ collection responsibly uses organic cotton, wool certified by The Responsible Wool Standard (RWS) and other low-impact fibres to curate long lasting fashion.

Many of Birger’s products require delicate hand washing to preserve the fibres and detail work.

Anna October

Prepare for an overwhelming array of items exuding femininity when shopping at Anna October, a Ukrainian womenswear brand encouraging women to indulge in sensitivity and freedom.

Anna October, the designer and founder of the brand, really set the standard with this brand, reflecting the love and appreciation that women are encouraged to feel for their bodies.

Every piece is created with a degree of femininity in mind through Anna’s use of pattern cutting and fine art.

A well-developed sustainable ethos also sits within the company, solidifying its spot in the current fashion industry.

Bright future ahead for luxury brands

These are just a few of the luxury fashion brands that have fought their way to the top of the fashion industry this year and are set to continue to impress discerning buyers.

According to the Bain and Altagamma analysis, the luxury market is projected to see a growth of at least three to eight per cent next year despite a downturn in global economic conditions.
