2017 FASHION RESALE TRENDS: MAXIMALISM REIGNS, GEN Z LOVES LUXURY & MORE

The fashion world continues to be a topsy turvy place in 2017. The game of Creative Director musical chairs at top fashion houses continues (Riccardo Tisci was out at Givenchy with Clare Waight Keller leaving Chloé to take his spot, for example), retail is undergoing major shifts and brick and mortar is both gaining and losing brands. While much of the focus is on the primary market, the resale market is not only gaining traction, it comes with its own set of unique insights into how people are consuming and selling luxury. To that end, we’ve compiled our second mid-year report on the state of luxury resale for 2017. From which brands are up and which are down among the top 20 bestsellers to specific items that are making their comebacks to how consignment affects retail, we’ve compiled the data and crunched the numbers to bring you some of the surprising trends taking shape this year. Scroll through above to see them.
