What is driving growth in the Global Luxury Apparel Market?

The global luxury apparel market has seen exceptional recovery since 2021, after the inevitable sales decline in 2020 due to the pandemic. This growth has largely been due to strong demand in the key market of APAC, with the lifting of restrictions leading consumers to spend more on luxury goods for events such as holidays and social occasions. This growth is only expected to continue, and GlobalData’s free report Global Luxury Apparel Market Trends, Size and Forecasts out to 2025, can assist companies in understanding the drivers behind this growth, as well as potential inhibitors and key trends affecting the market. Understanding these crucial elements will be essential for luxury brands and retailers to stay ahead of their competitors. This report provides comprehensive analysis of:
  • Luxury apparel market size at total, regional, and category level – with forecasts out to 2025
  • Market drivers and inhibitors
  • Retailer and brand market shares, 2019-2021

  • Key trends affecting the global luxury apparel market

Customers can drop unwanted items of any brand into participating Fat Face branches in the United Kingdom and will receive a discount of GBP10 (US$12.96) on a new garment from the retailer’s denim collection in return.

Meanwhile I:Co, whose name stands for I:Collect, organises the transport of the clothes from the participating Fat Face branches to the nearest sorting plant. Every garment is sorted by hand and categorised for best possible reuse.

Apparel that can still be worn gets a second life as second-hand goods, while items that are no longer wearable are recycled and processed into products for other industries, among them insulating material for the automotive industry, cleaning cloths or paint substrate.

“This cooperation with Fat Face is a further step towards a circular fashion industry,” says Axel Buchholz, CEO of I:Co. “With this take-back programme, Fat Face not only takes on ecological responsibility, but also increases the awareness with customers for the more and more important topic of textile waste and offers them an easy opportunity to keep their clothes in the textile loop.”

The partnership with Fat Face adds to I:Co’s global network that includes more than 60 countries and in excess of 40 partners, among them H&M, Vagabond, Guess and Adidas.
