“Confirmed Status: Bottega Veneta is the hottest brand on the planet.”
-Lisa Aiken, Moda Operandi Fashion & Buying Director
Thanks to social media, everyone can get a virtual front row seat to the big shows. Here, we looked at the collections that drove the most engagement on social media. Bottega Veneta overwhelmingly topped our list for the most preorder inquiries over Instagram Direct Message. Lisa’s declaration of Bottega as the hottest brand on the planet seems to be ringing true: The brand’s Dream Quilted Sandal in our in-season Boutique sold out in a week, and our most recent buy represents the biggest season over season growth of any brand in Moda Operandi history. Beyond Bottega, other brands that drove buzz on social include Brandon Maxwell, which generated the most engagement, and Loewe, which drove the most traffic.

The stylish Scandi teamed up with Gia Couture, an Italian label known for its high-quality footwear, to craft a tight edit of three designs, resulting in our bestselling non-apparel Trunkshow of the season.
