Fall 2021 Pre-Owned Designer Trend Report
Happy holidays! ‘Tis the season for our Fall 2021 wholesale recap on sales, best-sellers, and trends. We’re pleased to report the demand for designer resale items like the Chanel Classic Flap Bag and the Hermés Birkin haven’t slowed down at all — in fact, we’re seeing quite the opposite. As brands like Chanel continue to raise prices, boutiques and resale businesses like yours immediately dove in to scoop up the bestsellers to beat the inevitable price increases and the holiday rush.
With supply chain shortages top of-mind — driven by factors like factory closures, shipping container shortages, backups at the coasts, worker strikes, and other cost-cutting measures — one of the key shopping trends this holiday season is the growth of hybrid shopping as consumers go in many different directions to locate inventory and get the best prices.
So what does that mean for your business? Ensure you have the top sellers in resell to ensure you have the best sales. Here’s what was trending this fall.
TOP FIVE LUXURY BRANDS THAT DOMINATED RESALE THIS FALL
It should come as no surprise that overall, our best-selling brands were Louis Vuitton, Hermés, Chanel, Gucci, and Dior, and this trend remained consistent throughout our entire platform (wholesale stock and auction).
THE BESTSELLERS ON WHOLESALE STOCK & AUCTION
As of November 2021, Louis Vuitton is our top-selling wholesale brand, followed by Hermés, Chanel, Gucci and Dior. Each brand has its timeless designs like the Speedy, the Classic Flap Bag, the Birkin, Gucci Jackie, and the Dior Lady Dior, and while designers consistently launch new items in a rainbow of hues, monogram prints, and materials, neutral colors like black, white, grey, and camel tend to be a more in-demand option in fabrics like leather, goatskin, and exotic skins.
