HYBE Corporation, Balenciaga and SKIMS Among 'TIME's 100 Most Influential Companies
See the full list here.
TIME has unveiled its list of 100 Most Influential Companies to highlight “businesses making an extraordinary impact around the world.”
The roster features names from diverse fields, including HYBE Corporation, the company behind BTS that went public in 2020. The septet took one of the three TIME covers, along with the K-pop company’s founder Bang Si-hyuk. “The music industry is losing quite a lot in the value chain. I feel the music industry should be making a lot more money and their value as a service should be recognized more… In a lot of cases, people just do things because that’s the way things have been. I have a hard time accepting that… And so in running a company, I always try to focus on: Why are we doing this?” Bang spoke about the structure of his company.
Other highlights include Balenciaga, which saw immense growth since enlisting Demna as its creative director. “Luxury powerhouse Balenciaga is not only reflecting the cultural zeitgeist, it’s also driving it. The Georgian designer known simply as Demna last year showed the fashion house’s first couture collection in 50 years, and broke convention by producing virtual Fortnite apparel and a real-life Simpsons collection,” the magazine writes, further citing Demna’s “disruptive approach to design” as the driving force to the fashion house’s growth. Kim Kardashian‘s shapewear brand SKIMS was also featured in the list. The label is described to “reinvent intimate apparel with an eye toward body-type inclusivity.”
