Ever wanted that amazing handbag from your favorite brand which was a tad overpriced? Did you wait for the Black Friday or Christmas sale, hoping it would be on a mark-down? Only for it all to go waste because some luxury brands never go on sale. Even if they do, their signature styles – the ones which you want to buy are always at their original prices. That’s because they pretty much sell themselves and that is their USP as well.
Today we bring you a list of luxury brands which have a reputation for never going on sale!1. Louis Vuitton
Louis Vuitton, the luxury brand which originated from Paris has a reputation for never going on sale. It operates in 50 countries and has over 460 stores. Founded by Louis Vuitton, it is one of the world’s most valuable brands today with a revenue of around $10 billion as of 2016. Its products include handbags, leather goods, shoes, watches, jewelry, etc.
Gucci, the Italian luxury brand having its headquarters in Florence, Italy is the biggest-selling Italian brand. Guccio Gucci founded it in 1921. Its brand value was around $12.4 billion as of 2016 with a revenue of around $4.3 billion. You can maybe find some seasonal products at a marked down price, but the most sought-after styles are rarely on sale.
Cartier, the French luxury goods brand which designs, manufactures and sells jewelry and watches. Founded by Louis-François Cartier in Paris in 1847, it has been particularly famous among the royal families as well as celebrities. As of May 2017, it was valued at $9.3 billion. You can occasionally find discounts on some engagement rings, but the collection pieces are never on sale.
Prada, the Italian luxury fashion house which specializes in shoes, leather handbags, perfumes, ready-to-wear and other accessories. It was founded by Mario Prada in 1913 at Milan, Italy. Again, it is almost impossible to find the classics on sale.
5. Canada Goose
Canada Goose, the extreme weather outwear maker from Canada is another example of brands which never go on sale. Its products include parkas, coats, jackets, pants, gloves, etc. The demand for their jackets always outweighs the supply – one of the reasons why you would never see it on sale. Maybe except for some small range of products here and there.
Dior, founded by Christian Dior in 1946, is a French luxury goods brand famous all around the world. Some designs like the original quilted, Lady Dior bag will never go on sale regardless of its color. Occasional seasonal markdowns can be found on selected shoes, accessories and ready-to-wear. But rarely on leather goods.
Chanel was founded by Coco Chanel in 1909. It is a French brand and fashion house having the valuation of over $7 billion as of May 2017. You can almost never find the brand on sale. Except for the past season bags sometimes.
Burberry is a British luxury fashion brand headquartered in London. It was founded in 1856 by Thomas Burberry. As per 2016, its revenues were around £2,500 million. You can never find its classic trench coats or signature styles on sale.
Hermès is a French luxury brand which was established back in 1837. It specializes in high fashion clothing and accessories. You will not be able to find its Birkin or Kelly bags on sale ever. But the seasonal ones, you might.
10. Tom Ford
Tom Ford, a luxury brand launched by the American fashion designer of the same name. After working as the Creative director with Gucci & Yves Saint Laurent, he launched his own brand in 2004. Today his net worth is $200 million. His products include menswear, beauty products, eyewear, and accessories. Again, a lot of his products have a reputation for not going on sale.
Goyard, the leather goods, and French trunk maker came into existence back in 1853 at Paris. It is one of those mysterious luxury brands which does not sell anything online. It is privately owned and is known for having a certain amount of secrecy, which does not even have to answer to its stakeholders and often refuses to give interviews. Yes, it does all this but still is one of the most famous luxury brands
12. Vera Wang
Vera Wang, a brand by the American fashion designer Vera Allen Wang. It has gained wide popularity over the years, and it is almost impossible to find any of the wedding dresses from this brand on sale ever.
