The Five Most Expensive Clothing Brands in the World

Suits

Clothing runs the gamut from the very cheap to the very expensive. However, it is interesting to note that high-end clothing makes up a huge proportion of the market, with some estimates putting it at something along the lines of $300 billion out of $3 trillion for clothing as a whole. To some extent, this makes sense because most people want to look as good as possible, which in turn, means that there are a lot of people out there who are willing to spend more for clothing that they think will provide them with the desired results. Of course, even when it comes to high-end clothing, there are still some brands that are more expensive than others.

Here are five of the most expensive clothing brands that can be found out there in the world:

Chanel

Chanel started up when Gabrielle “Coco” Chanel opened a shop that specialized in hats and other headwear in the flat of her lover, which provided her with the chance to meet a wide range of both men and women who moved in the fashionable circles of Paris in the early 20th century. In time, Chanel went on to revolutionize clothing, as shown by its creation of the little black dress, its replacement of the constrictive, overdone designs of the 19th century with much more comfortable but nonetheless elegant designs, and a number of other inventions as well as innovations. Nowadays, Chanel remains a powerhouse in the fashion world, encompassing not just clothing but also accessories as well as other products.

Burberry

When someone thinks Burberry, chances are good that the image that comes to mind would be a check pattern. To be exact, chances are good that the image that comes to mind would be a very specific check pattern that consists of a tan background with black and white stripes that intersect as well as narrower red stripes that serve as accents. This makes sense because said check pattern has been in use since the 1920s, with one excellent example being the lining of certain Burberry products. For a time, Burberry’s reputation suffered when it became associated with certain looked-down-upon subcultures in the early 2000s, but new leadership was able to correct that by reducing Burberry’s use of the check pattern as well as implementing other measures, with the result that its brand is healthier than ever.

Hermes

It is interesting to note that Hermes wasn’t named for the Greek god but rather Thierry Herm├Ęs, who was the man who founded the brand. In fact, Hermes’s famous carriage symbol comes from the business’s beginnings as a manufacturer of saddlery, though even then, it bore a reputation for excellence. Regardless, Hermes has long since expanded its range of products to encompass everything from clothing for both men and women to watches, jewelry, and even home furnishings. However, while the business has seen its fair share of ups and downs over the course of two centuries, it remains a towering presence in modern times.

Prada

Prada was founded by Mario Prada and his brother in 1913 for the purpose of making handbags, suitcases, and other leather products for the Italian elite. It is amusing to note that while Mario believed that women had no place in business, his daughter Luisa Prada was the one who succeeded him because his son had no interest the brand whatsoever. Later, Luisa was succeeded by her own daughter Miuccia, who proceeded to transform the business that had been entrusted to her. In particular, it should be mentioned that Miuccia was the one who launched luxury clothing lines for both men and women, which have become a huge component of Prada.

Gucci

When he was still young, Guccio Gucci spent some time working at Parisian hotels, where he was quite impressed by the luxury luggage used by the guests. Eventually, when he returned to his hometown of Florence, he decided to start his own brand by taking advantage of the city’s reputation for good materials as well as good craftsmanship while also introducing what were then modern manufacturing techniques and technologies. Since that time, Gucci has gone through more than its fair share of controversy, but the brand remains well-known to a wide range of consumers in a wide range of countries.
