Infographic - Step inside the luxury handbag

By FashionUnited

10 Oct 2016


The global fashion market is currently worth a staggering amount: approximately 3 trillion US dollars - that's 3,000 billion US dollars. The eighth installment of FashionUnited’s fashion industry statistics infographic series takes a closer look at the coveted market of luxury handbags. At some point in the 90s, ‘It’ bags became one of the ultimate markers of status and supreme fashion tastes. During the 90s, brands like Coach, Gucci, and Louis Vuitton had the monopoly on the luxury handbag market with their heavily logoed designer bags and paved the way for the rise of other brands, such as Celine. The last decade of the 20th century saw an explosion in the luxury handbag market as they became a must-have for many shoppers. Discover the infographic to learn more, and to find out why a Hermes Birkin bag is a better investment in gold.

This is the eight installment of a new series based on the fashion statistics pages, a product of FashionUnited Business Intelligence. These pages include data on the domestic market size of apparel and footwear, facts and market values on the largest fashion companies and fashion employment statistics.
