For the seventh year, Forbes has released its list of the world’s 100 most valuable brands. To rank them, Forbes looks at the brands’ earnings for three years, and allocates percentages of the earnings depending on the role each brand plays in its industry.

Predictably, the top 10 was dominated by technology brands, with Apple, Google, Microsoft and Facebook comprising the top four, in that order.

As for fashion and luxury brands, Nike topped the list with a ranking of #16 in the world, followed by Louis Vuitton at #20, and then H&M at #36.
