Looking forward, while we expect the external global environment to remain challenging, the team is intensely focused on optimising the significant opportunities that exist for the brand across geographies and product divisions, with particular emphasis on unlocking the potential of our digital platform and our newly-integrated fragrance and beauty business.”

Retail sales, which accounted for 75% of total revenue in the second half, grew by 13% on an underlying and reported basis, benefiting from the consistent execution of key retail strategies. All four product divisions delivered double-digit growth, as did fashion and replenishment.
