Luxury fashion brands are renowned for their exclusive, coveted, and expensive clothing, shoes, and accessories. From Louis Vuitton to Hermes, Salvatore Ferragamo to Gucci, and Prada to Burberry, these luxury fashion houses have created a spectrum of exclusivity and pricing depending on the brand. The most exclusive luxury brands offer pieces with a unique style that come with a hefty price tag.
