Top 100 Luxury Fashion Trends of 2014

From Bespoke Designer Footwear to Wearable Art Couture

— January 11, 2015 — Luxury
The top 2014 luxury fashion trends prove that, no matter the state of the economy, luxury will always be a category that thrives.

Understated and experiential luxury are on the rise, catering to a younger, more digitally-inclined consumer. Moreover, shoppers no longer only want to look good; they want to know that the brands they're buying from use ethical and sustainable production methods, leading to brands becoming more thoughtful and aware.

Speaking more specifically to luxury fashion, there is a sense that the industry is taking itself less seriously. Designers have embraced a humor and story-telling within their collections, adding a playful element that was missing in previous years.

To understand the evolution of luxury fashion trends, among others, and the way they continue to grow, check out the 2015 Trend Report Video.
