This is not surprising given only last month GlobalData analyst Pippa Stephens told Just Style the brand desperately needs to turn itself turnaround.

She claimed its future was looking bleak with constant currency revenue excluding Russia expected to decline by low double-digits in H2. 

However, the brand hailed a return to profitability for three months to 31 May and attributed the win to its Driving Change agenda, despite sales for the third quarter slipping 10.9% on a reported basis to £858.9m ($1.087bn).

Menswear brand Raymond Ltd was also listed in GlobalData’s so-called ‘top losers’ list with a sentiment score of 0.5 and US footwear brand Foot Locker joined with a 0.41 score.

In May Foot Locker released its first quarter financial results which showed a revenue plunge of 11%.

Foot Locker president and chief executive officer Mary Dillon said at the time that sales had softened given the tough macroeconomic backdrop. As a result the retailer reduced its guidance for the year and planned to take more aggressive markdowns to both drive demand and manage inventory.

Another footwear retailer sits fourth place on the top losers list – Genesco Inc. – had a sentiment score of 0.52.

Finally, the parent company of UK fast fashion retailer Primark, Associated British Foods Plc sits in fifth place with a 0.57 sentiment score.

However, at the end of last month Primark’s future was looking bright with Associated British Foods revising its profit forecast for the 2022/23 fiscal year, citing the positive impact of robust consumer demand for Primark’s summer clothing ranges.
