Burberry said spring/summer was a "standout season" for the group, with its high-end Prorsum fashion range and accessories such as the Blaze and Orchard bags proving a hit with shoppers.

The first quarter like-for-like sales rise marks an impressive increase over the 7% growth seen in the previous six months, while retail revenue in the three months ending June 30 leapt 18% to £339 million, excluding exchange rate effects.
