Premium online shopping platform releases a list of the hottest brands and products for the first quarter of 2023.

Since the first quarter of 2023 is ending soon, brands and fashion houses made waves with their collaborations and recent collections. A brand’s presence is an integral part of its business—it is what makes people buy the clothes and products they sell. Lyst, a fashion technology company, and an online premium shopping platform with more than 200 million users created a list of the hottest brands called The Lyst Index. The company uses a formula that is a combination of the shoppers’ behavior, product views and sales, and social media mentions.

Some brands improved their standing on the list, on the other hand, others went down drastically. Some brands are consistent enough to retain their ranking in the list. Notable changes in the list are Gucci falling from the second to seventh spot and Versace entering the top 10, placing eight this year after climbing up five spots.

1. Prada

Prada was also named the number one hottest brand in the Lyst Index Fashion’s Hottest Brands and Products Q4 2022. With Prada’s revenue skyrocketing by 24% and amassing €3.252 million in retail sales in 2022, the brand continues to grow exponentially. One contributing factor to this said growth is the attendance of Korean boy group Enhypen in the brand’s last  FW23 men’s show in Milan.

Aside from more celebrities using the brand, the recent sneaker collaboration with New Balance also bolstered the brand to success. The brand now sits on the second spot after climbing two steps up from last year’s list.
