Strong sales performances were recorded in the Bonds, Berlei, Jockey, Kayser, Love Kylie and Voodoo brands. Bonds growth was driven by successful brand extensions and product development – in particular the fleece 'Hoodie' and 'Trackie', re-emergence of the Chesty singlet and babywear. All ranges were supported by strong advertising campaigns. Sales of Holeproof branded socks were driven by the successful campaigns for Computer Socks (using the Donald Trump campaign), Slipper Socks and Explorers.
