Hugo Boss chief executive officer Daniel Grieder said: “After our highly dynamic start to the year, we continued our strong performance also in the second quarter. Momentum once again exceeded our own high expectations, despite the overall challenging and uncertain market environment.

“Following our strategy update in June, both brands BOSS and HUGO successfully maintained their growth trajectory. We will make 2023 a new record year for Hugo Boss, thus providing a robust foundation for achieving our updated 2025 financial ambition.”

For the full year of 2023, Hugo Boss expects sales to increase between 12% and 15% to between €4.1bn and €4.2bn.

The company also anticipates that its EBIT will grow between 20% and 25%, a level of between €400m and €420m, in 2023.
