MILAN — Tourists in Europe on the lookout for unique products along with boutique openings, strong demand in North America for elegant daywear and increasing appreciation for the brand in China helped propel Brunello Cucinelli SpA’s sales up by more than 10 percent in the first nine months of the year to 384.2 million euros.
Revenues increased in all channels, with retail — which benefited from the conversion of some stores from wholesale to direct management as well as from the opening of three new directly operated locations and the launch of the directly managed online boutique — seeing a nearly 20 percent gain over the first nine months of 2016.
