GLOBAL: Louis Vuitton tops fashion brand rankings
Louis Vuitton continues to lead a pack of ten fashion names named in the latest rundown of the top 100 global brands drawn up by Interbrand.
The LVMH-owned label maintained its 16th place in the 11th annual rankings of the Best Global Brands, increasing its value by 4% to US$21.9bn.
Other fashion and apparel brands in the top 100 include Adidas, Hermès, Gap, Armani and Burberry .
All recorded value increases except Burberry, which dropped two spots to 100 with a value of $3.1bn, flat on last year.
Coca-Cola continued to lead the overall listings – the tenth year in a row that the brand has topped the list.
“2010 was the beginning of a long road back towards economic recovery,” said Jez Frampton, group chief executive at Interbrand.
“From real-time customer feedback through social media to increased transparency about corporate citizenship, brands were faced with a profound change in the way they relate to customers and demonstrate their relevance and value.
“Despite this new paradigm of brand management, the advantages of building a solid brand remain the same.”
