Tapestry: sales of the group up by 19%
The New-York based house of modern luxury accessories and lifestyle brands, reported results for the fiscal third quarter ended on the 27th of March 2021. Quarter results above expectations with sales up by 19%
“Our third quarter results significantly outpaced expectations, underscoring the power of the Acceleration Program and enthusiasm for our brands. Through a sharpened focus on the consumer, we fuelled new customer acquisition at Coach, Kate Spade, and Stuart Weitzman and delivered robust sales growth led by Digital and China. Importantly, for the third consecutive quarter, we achieved operating income gains – compared to both FY20 and FY19 – supported by a continued reduction in promotional activity, higher AUR, and disciplined expense management”, commented Joanne Crevoiserat, Chief Executive Officer of Tapestry.

“Building on this momentum, we are increasingly optimistic about our ability to generate sustainable top and bottom-line growth. Looking forward, while the environment remains volatile, we see encouraging signs of recovery as vaccination efforts progress, resulting in increased consumer confidence, strong demand for our categories, and improving in-store traffic trends. In this context, we remain focused on driving brand relevance and customer engagement through product innovation and compelling marketing, supported by data-driven insights and a digital-first mindset”, the CEO concluded.
