The Five Designer Pieces Worth Investing In This Year

According to new research, these luxury items have the highest potential

We all know fashion is constantly evolving. Trends come and go every season, only to eventually come around again and again – just take Jane’s Birken to Carrie Bradshaw’s Dior Saddle. But after all the original hype has died down, which luxury goods are actually worth investing in? Stylight has teamed up with second-hand retailer Rebelle to determine which five “It” items have the greatest resale value. 

From categories, colours, materials and brands that have the highest resale value, Stylight’s Fashion Investment Guide explains which five luxury items will give you the greatest return on your sartorial investment. Below, what is worth investing in. 

1. Gucci Marmont

According to global Stylight shopping data of over 12 million monthly users, the most clicked-on model of the highly-coveted 2019 Gucci GG Marmont shoulder bag is in raspberry-pink velvet.

2. Dior Saddle Bag

John Galliano’s Dior Saddle bag has been an iconic model since its debut in 1999. Thanks to Maria Grazia Chiuri, Dior’s current creative director, the Saddle bag made its long-awaited reappearance at the Paris Fall/Winter 2018 Fashion Week.

3. Gucci Princetown Slipper

The Princetown slippers from Gucci are a winning combination of luxurious comfort and classic design. This season’s statement mules, ranging in colours, materials, and designs, have made their way into the wardrobe’s of fashion’s elite. On Stylight, the most-clicked-on pair of Gucci Princetown slippers in the past year is the black leather pair embroidered with gold bees and a star motif.

4. Fendi Baguette Bag

The Fendi statement bag, a cultural icon in itself in the late 1990s, was one of fashion’s first “It” bags. According to Rebelle data, the prices for second-hand Baguette models have risen dramatically in recent months, largely thanks to the style’s design revival and influencer hype.


5. Nike x Off-White ‘Air Force 1’ 

While Instagram may be riddled with popular sneaker models from Alexander McQueen and Balenciaga, the shoe resale market relies heavily on the singularity of a product. As an example, the Nike x Off-white ‘Air Force 1’ sneakers were originally listed for $170 but can now be found on eBay for $1,140, a 570% price increase.
