Sales at high street chain H&M rose by 6% in September after slipping back in August.
The group reported a 4% dip in sales in August, which it blamed on unusually hot weather in Europe.
H&M said total sales including VAT in local currencies increased by 15% in September compared to the same month last year. It now has 2669 stores compared to 2636 on September 30 2011.
September sales will include its collaboration with US singer Lana Del Rey, who also fronted the retailer’s autumn campaign.
