During the quarter we saw strong sell-in of our spring and summer line into our wholesale accounts globally and solid initial sell-through in our own retail channel, all of which contributed to a 17 percent constant currency revenue growth during the quarter,” said John McCarvel, President and Chief Executive Officer. “As we look into the core of the spring summer selling season, we are confident that our product line-up, including a combination of new collections and core products will continue to drive revenues forward.”
