• Retail revenue increased 18% on underlying basis to GBP339m
  • Comparable store sales increased 13%
  • Growth driven by strong spring/summer collection

Burberry has recorded a jump in first quarter retail revenue, which it said was driven by the exceptional performance of its spring/summer collection.

The UK luxury brand said that over the three months to 30 June, retail revenue increased 18% on an underlying basis to reach GBP339m (US$504.7m). Comparable store sales increased 13% over the quarter.

The company said growth was helped by its investment in digital, but was broad-based by product and region, both offline and online.

"We are pleased with our first quarter retail performance," said CEO Angela Ahrendts.

"Spring/summer 2013 was a standout season driven by innovative marketing, cohesive monthly fashion groups and exceptional execution from all corporate and regional teams.

"Looking forward, the macro outlook remains uncertain and we will continue to focus our investment on profitable high growth opportunities by channel, region and product categories."
