Ralph Lauren's market-beating sales extend a string of strong performances from global luxury groups, including Versace owner Capri Holdings, LVMH and Prada , as customers coming out from lockdowns splurge on high-end fashion, propelling sales to pre-pandemic levels.

The retailer's net revenue rose 27% to $1.82 billion in the third quarter ended Dec. 25. Analysts on average had expected revenue of $1.64 billion, according to Refinitiv IBES data.

The retailer said it expects constant currency revenue for fiscal year 2022 to rise 39% to 41%, compared with a prior forecast of a 34% to 36% increase.
