Kering has attributed the sales growth to its continued bounceback from the pandemic, which has prompted a sustained e-commerce growth. The Group’s e-commerce revenue for the period saw a rise of 55 per cent, when compared to 2019, and now accounts for 15% of total sales in the Group.

Kering was founded in 1963 and generated €13.1 billion in 2019. The Paris-based retail group owns luxury brands like BalenciagaBottega VenetaGucciAlexander McQueen and Yves Saint Laurent.
