Overall, Oakley’s sales rose double digits globally, with an 8% increase in wholesale sales in North America in U.S. dollars. In Europe, Oakley sales rose double digits.

 

Oakley retail comps in North America jumped 11.4%.

 

Sunglass Hut, the major sunglass retail player globally, recorded an 8.8% increase in retail comps overall. In the U.S., Sunglass Hut comps rose 8.4%.

Overall, Luxottica net sales rose 6.7% in constant currency to EUR 1.8 billion. Net income rose 30.6% to EUR 138.6 million.
