If you have somehow managed to get your hands on the sought-after Bottega Veneta padded sandals â€“ they’re renowned for selling out almost the instant they’re restocked â€“ you’re now in possession of the hottest fashion item in the world right now.
Global fashion search platform Lyst analyses the shopping habits of more than 9 million shoppers each month and it has just released its quarterly report revealing the hottest brands and products on the market right now.
Off-White, which came in second place in Q2, has moved up a spot to take out the top-ranking place where brands are concerned. Balenciaga took out second place, while Gucci came in third. It’s the first time in two years the Italian fashion house hasn’t come in at either first or second.
Versace, Prada, Valentino, Fendi, Burberry, Saint Laurent and Vetements round out the top ten.

The Sought-After Fashion Items
When it comes to fashion items, the aforementioned Bottega Veneta padded sandals took out the top spot. The hand-stitched, quilted, square-toed sandals retail for $680 Euros and garnered over 27,000 online searches each month.
While a pair of Bottega’s might put a rather large dent in your bank balance, the Adidas Continental 80 sneakers â€“ the only other shoes to make the hottest women’s product list for Q3 â€“ come with a more affordable price tag. The sneakers came in at third place and retail for around $170.
According to Lyst searches for Bottega Veneta shoes spiked 156 per cent as the Spring/Summer 2020 fashion shows took place in September. Bottega Veneta climbed an impressive 21 places and the Q3 report is the first time that the Italian fashion house has made it into the top 20.
And while it’s undoubtedly teeny-tiny and arguably rather impractical Jacquemus’ ‘Le Chiquito’ mini bag â€“ pictured above â€“ took out second place racking up over 12,500 monthly skirts. Although the brand isn’t in the top 20 yet, Jacquemus jumped up 37 positions.
