Nike number one in Brand Finance Top 50

Despite losing popularity with American teenagers and a drop in brand value of 41 per cent, Nike is still way out in front in the Brand Finance Top 50 list of the most valuable apparel brands in the world.

In the list, just been release by the independent brand valuation and strategy consultancy, Nike’s main competitor Adidas was fourth behind H&M and Zara with an increase in brand value of 41 per cent.

In the realm of luxury brands, Hermes overtook Louis Vuitton, jumping two spots from 7th to 5th from last year. Luxury brands including Cartier, Gucci, Hermes and LV had strong growth in value as more consumers in emerging markets buy into the market.

Japan’s Uniqlo was the only Asian brand in the top 10, with Hong Kong jeweller Chow Tai Fook and China’s Anta Sports taking up the 13th and 33rd spots respectively.
