As we near the end of the year, we are naturally looking back at all the decisions made, moments spent, and adventures had in the last 12 months. Now, we’re taking a close look at the style choices we were part of, too! Google has released its official annual “Year In Search” reports, which includes the Top 10 Most Googled Brands of 2017.
Below, we’re sharing the fashion labels, designers, and beauty brands the world couldn’t get enough of in 2017.
Most Googled Brands of 2017: Fashion
Gucci’s creative designs, eye-catching color choices, and devotion to opulence have kept the brand highly-regarded this year. But many of the brand’s 2017 headlines have added to its #1 Google interest spot. Recently, the brand debuted its home decor collection, made an industry-changing decision to go fur-free, and made big strides in terms of model diversity. Gucci’s designs were also closely associated with influential celebrities like Harry Styles and Jared Leto, which only added to public interest.
Supreme’s January 2017 collaboration with Louis Vuitton is one of the biggest searches of the year. It’s no surprise, considering the huge amount of popularity both labels have separately.
3. Louis Vuitton
Of course, Louis Vuitton’s influence comes right after Supreme’s after their buzzworthy collaboration of 2017. But more of LV’s popular moments of the year include the line’s Jeff Koons drop and extensive campaigning with Jaden Smith.
4. Fashion Nova
Considered to be a surprise contender on this Google list, Fashion Nova is the non-luxury brand (aside from rising label Supreme) which found its way into the Top 10. The affordable global e-retailer is nearing 10 million followers on Instagram, so clearly their shopping strategy is on point!
Chanel’s 2017 partnership with Pharrell Williams is credited with bringing even more interest to the iconic designer brand over the past few months. Not only was the artist the first man to appear in a handbag campaign for the brand, but he recently debuted his first-ever sneaker design for Chanel’s Colette capsule.
6. Yves Saint Laurent
With ultra-chic campaigns highlighting stars like Zoë Kravitz, Kate Moss, and more, fans have been captivated by the way Saint Laurent mixes classic YSL and future-forward design.
7. Christian Dior
Dior caught major attention in 2017 for its “We Should All Be Feminists” t-shirt. But the brand’s new look under Maria Grazia Chiuri kept shoppers interested and fascinated all year long.
8. Dolce & Gabbana
Ever since the late 2016 launch of #DGMillenials, Dolce & Gabbana has been connected to a new social media savvy audience. Campaigns with influencers and celebrities like Zendaya, Cameron Dallas, Austin Mahone, and more surely added to the label’s searchability.
Valentino does street style just as gorgeously as the brand does red carpet looks, making the label a favorite of a wide range of fashionistas.
This brand is always keeping us on our toes with clever, humorous, and creatively-inspired collections. No wonder the whole world is Googling to see what Jeremy Scott is up to!
