Lyst has released its latest Index report, which is a quarterly ranking of fashion's hottest brands and products, taking into account "Lyst shoppers’ behaviour, including searches on and off the platform, product views and sales". To determine the same, it also tracks brand and product heat, social media mentions, activity and engagement statistics worldwide, over a three-month period. The latest report gave the verdict for 2022 Q4 - October to December 2022. According to Lyst, this quarter saw the most movement amongst the top 20 brands since the chart began.

Prada replaced Gucci, which dropped to second place after Alessandro Michele's unexpected departure, to become the hottest brand in the world, moving to the number one spot "for the first time with searches up 37 per cent this quarter". Seeing a significant rise, Moncler rocketed 14 spots up the chart and took the third position.

Balenciaga, on the other hand, was hit by several controversies including its infamous campaign featuring children this quarter. As a result, it dropped off the top 10 ranking to take the 11th spot.

Lyst also mentioned that several newcomers entered the index. "Gen Z shoppers are breathing new life into once dormant brands. Stepping up into 15th place — and with over 1.2 billion mentions on TikTok — Ugg’s influence is undeniable. Searches for its $140 ultra mini boots, which have been sold out across many retailers for most of the past three months, have skyrocketed 82%. In 19th place, Coach is moving up thanks to a rise in demand for its more accessibly priced handbags over the gifting season, which have increased in popularity among Gen Z shoppers. Alaïa and Mugler are this quarter’s Breakout Brands to watch, the continued appreciation for archive Y2K fashion propelling both labels into the spotlight," it noted.
