Last week CoolBrands, The Centre for Brand Analysis, released their latest list which details the brands in the UK that are simply put, the coolest! And it didn’t come as a surprise to us here in the Seriously Helpful office, that once again, Apple retained its crown for the third year running.

Of course, its popularity was enhanced due to the timely announcement of the iPhone 6, 6 Plus and the Apple Watch, as well as launch of iOS8, but still, Apple fended off some stiff competition to stay at the top of the pile.

So, let’s have a closer look at the top 20 brands in the UK, according to CoolBrands:

1.    Apple
2.    Aston Martin
3.    Nike
4.    Chanel
5.    Glastonbury
6.    Google
7.    YouTube
8.    Dom Perignon
9.    Rolex
10.    Netflix
11.    Bang & Olufsen
12.    Ray-Ban
13.    Alexander McQueen
14.    Instagram
15.    Bose
16.    Liberty
17.    Selfridges
18.    Sony
19.    Virgin Atlantic
20.    Stella McCartney

Now, we are not experts like our friends over at CoolBrands clearly, but if we were to compile a list of the top 20 brands that are cool at SH HQ, it would look a little something like this:
