Apparel company The Warnaco Group has recorded a double-digit rise in adjusted second quarter profit, thanks to a strong revenue surge led by its Calvin Klein brand.

International revenues surged up 32% and direct-to-consumer sales increased by 38%, the US owner of brands including Warner’s and Speedo said.

All three company segments – sportswear, intimates and swimwear – recorded revenue increases, led by sportswear and intimates, while Calvin Klein reported “powerful growth”, Warnaco said.

“Our second quarter results reflect the success of our growth strategies and the benefits of our global and diverse operating model,” said Joe Gromek, Warnaco president and CEO.

“We continued to invest in our key growth initiatives, namely maximising our Calvin Klein business, broadening our international footprint and expanding our direct-to-consumer business.”
