Evaluating Tommy Hilfiger’s performance
Tommy Hilfiger, which accounted for 43.0% of PVH Corp’s (PVH) 2Q17 top line, recorded a 4.0% YoY (year-over-year) rise in sales.
Tommy Hilfiger’s international revenues rose 9.0% YoY to $492.0 million during the quarter. Sales comps (comparables) rose 6.0% as the brand witnessed continued momentum in Europe and Asia.
North America sales, however, continued to fall 2.0% to $400.0 million, mainly due to the fall in revenue from the licensing of Tommy Hilfiger North America womenswear wholesale business to G-III Apparel Group (GIII). Sales comps in the region remained flat during the quarter.
Evaluating Calvin Klein’s performance
Calvin Klein accounted for 38.0% of PVH’s 2Q17 sales, rising 8.0% YoY during the quarter. Sales growth was driven completely by strength in international markets. North America sales fell 1.0% during the quarter. The Mexico deconsolidation and a 2.0% fall in North America sales comps were responsible for the fall in the North America business.
International revenues rose 20.0% YoY to $394.0 million, fueled by solid performances in the wholesale as well as retail channels. International same-store sales rose 6.0% during the quarter, recording solid performances in China and Japan.
