Online fashion and beauty retailer Farfetch has reported its revenue for the second quarter of FY2023 dropped by 1.3% to $572.1m (€449.5m) from $579.3m in the same period of FY2022.

Farfetch attributed the decline to a 42.2% decrease in brand platform revenue and a 15.1% decrease in in-store revenue.

These drops were offset by digital platform revenue that rose by 10.5% to $482m, while digital platform services revenue increased 9.9% over the quarter.

Its gross profit margin for the quarter was 42.5%, down 370 basis points from last year due to the decline of digital platform gross profit margin to 49.3% in Q2 FY2023.

The retailer reported gross merchandise value (GMV) of $1.03bn in Q2 FY2023, up 1.2% from $1.02bn in the same period a last year.
