Global fashion search platform Lyst has released its quarterly report ranking fashion’s hottest brands and products. In the list, the Duchess of Cambridge gets a shout-out with demand for New Balance sneakers growing worldwide in terms of both searches and sales. Kate has worn her New Balance Vazee Transform trainers on a couple of occasions, but she's not the only fan! Rihanna and Kaia Gerber have both worn the cool sneaks, and page views for the label increased 41 percent quarter-on-quarter while the brand’s 993 running shoes entered the women’s hottest products Lyst list for the first time in 7th position.
