RIGHT NOW, WHAT’S ON THE OUTSIDE COUNTS
Outerwear sales as a proportion of all sales are 115% higher than last Fall
With public health experts encouraging us all to socialize outdoors, activities that once may have taken place indoors—like weekend brunch or dinner—are now occurring in gardens, city sidewalks, or backyards. As a result (and as temperatures drop), we’ve found that right now, luxury consumers are investing in pieces they can show off outdoors. Outerwear sales as a proportion of all sales are 115% higher than last fall, with pieces like Max Mara’s Teddy Coat, Paco Rabanne’s Printed Wool Coat, and Staud’s Vegan Leather Jacket rising to the top.

THIS SEASON'S FASHION
The average handbag sold for $1,560 this Fall, compared to $900 at the same time last year.
We’ve also found that three-quarters of all handbag sales this fall are designer handbags, suggesting that consumers are spending more on higher investment pieces they’ll wear—and be seen in—every day. In fact, the average handbag sold for $1,560 this fall, compared to $900 at the same time last year. Our top seller? Bottega Veneta’s Chain Cassette Bag. Another popular handbag worth noting this season was Olympia Le Tan’s “The Ruth Bader Ginsburg Clutch”. The bag, priced at $1,250, featured a hand-embroidered felt-and-silk portrait of the legendary feminist and social justice advocate with the phrase, “Fight For the Things You Care About.” It sold out within hours of Justice Ginsburg’s passing, despite being on our site for over six months—a testament to the influence of RBG’s legacy.
