French retail conglomerate PPR posted a rise in first quarter revenues on Wednesday, thanks to strong luxury sales which managed to soften the effects of slower trading at its retail outlet Fnac and sportswear company Puma.
After taking out acquisitions and currency fluctuations, sales at PPR’s luxury division grew 17.8 per cent, thanks to strong growth in China and a thriving tourism trade in Europe and the US.
