"2020 was undoubtedly a tough year for the apparel sector," said Richard Haigh, Brand Finance managing director. "Global and widespread economic disruption caused a sharp decrease in demand and lockdown-induced store closures forced brands to digitalize quickly or face dire consequences to sales and profits."

He added, "Despite the total brand value of the world’s top 50 most valuable apparel brands declining 8% year-on-year, on the whole we have witnessed remarkable agility and innovation across the sector, which will no doubt stand brands in good stead in the coming year."

Looks like these brands are going to recover—and fast.
