Burberry shareholders will be hoping the British designer can ease concerns over a slowdown in demand for luxury goods when it updates the market this week.
The London fashion house has suffered a share price slump since May amid investor fears about the economic outlook. It will provide a half-year update on Thursday.
In July, Burberry reported a surge in sales due to a post-Covid spike in demand in China – an important market for the group.
Revenues jumped 18 per cent between April and June compared with the previous year, it said.
But luxury rivals have reported a slowdown in sales. Louis Vuitton owner LVMH – the world’s largest luxury group – saw revenue growth slow to 9 per cent in the three months to the end of September from 17 per cent in the previous quarter.

And Richemont, the owner of jewellery brand Cartier, last week unveiled weaker-than-expected profits and slowing growth for the year.
Deutsche Bank analyst Adam Cochrane said: ‘The luxury consumer appears to finally be facing economic headwinds after a couple of years of strong outperformance.’
