The hit HBO series Succession has not only captivated audiences with its gripping storyline and complex characters, but it also made a significant impact on the world of fashion, not least of which by making the phrase “quiet luxury” trend across the internet and the world.
The show, which follows the lives of the wealthy Roy family and their corporate empire, has become a source of inspiration for fashion enthusiasts around the globe. From the luxurious clothing and accessories worn by the characters to the brands that have experienced a surge in sales, Succession has undeniably influenced the fashion world.
Following the season 4 debut, the number of sales of Italian design house Loro Piana, made popular by Kendall Roy, surged approximately 50 percent across eBay globally compared to the previous month. Loro Piana, known for its high-quality fabrics and timeless designs, has become synonymous with the understated elegance and sophistication showcased in Succession. The Supreme Loro Piana alpaca wool overcoat pictured above is a great example.
Not only has the show influenced sales for luxury clothing brands, but it has also significantly impacted the sneaker market. The Gucci Run sneakers, sported by Kendall in the premiere, spiked over 40 percent globally. These sneakers, known for bold designs and high-end materials, have become a must-have item for fashion-forward individuals looking to add a touch of luxury to their everyday style.
Cartier Panthère watches, worn by Shiv Roy, were also up over 30 percent globally. Cartier’s classic and timeless designs, combined with the association with the powerful and influential character of Shiv, have made these watches a symbol of success and prestige.
