The Luxury division continues to report outstanding growth propelled by the momentum of our brands across all of the Group's regions.
“We are also pursuing the Group's strategic transformation. This quarter’s impressive performance bears witness to the complementary nature and growth potential of our brands, the strength of the Group and the balanced footprint of our businesses. This reinforces our confidence in PPR’s ability to deliver sustained revenue growth, along with gains in operating and financial performance, over the full year."
