Chanel has slowly risen up the rankings to take the number two spot, could this be to do with the company’s ongoing presence in pop-up retail in 2018 and 2019 – a strong trend. How will Chanel fare on the poll in 2020 following the death of Karl Lagerfeld, and with Virginie Viard now at the helm? It will be the first time a woman has led the company since Coco Chanel.
