The end of the earnings season is always a good time to take a step back and see who shined (and who not so much). Let’s take a look at how apparel, accessories and luxury goods stocks fared in Q1, starting with G-III (NASDAQ:GIII).

Within apparel and accessories, not only do styles change more frequently today than decades past as fads travel through social media and the internet but consumers are also shifting the way they buy their goods, favoring omnichannel and e-commerce experiences. Some apparel, accessories, and luxury goods companies have made concerted efforts to adapt while those who are slower to move may fall behind.

The 17 apparel, accessories and luxury goods stocks we track reported a mixed Q1; on average, revenues beat analyst consensus estimates by 0.5%. while next quarter's revenue guidance was 2.2% below consensus. Stocks, especially growth stocks where cash flows further in the future are more important to the story, had a good end of 2023. But the beginning of 2024 has seen more volatile stock performance due to mixed inflation data, and apparel, accessories and luxury goods stocks have held roughly steady amidst all this, with share prices up 2.3% on average since the previous earnings results.

Morris Goldfarb, G-III’s Chairman and Chief Executive Officer, said, “We had a strong start to fiscal 2025, delivering first quarter earnings per diluted share well ahead of our expectations. Our performance was driven by double-digit increases in DKNY and Karl Lagerfeld along with a successful relaunch of Donna Karan, reflecting our commitment to investing in our owned brands and our ability to meet the ever-changing needs of our consumers. I am also excited to announce our partnership and investment in AWWG, a global fashion group and premier platform for iconic international brands, which furthers a number of our strategic priorities. Looking ahead, we remain cautiously optimistic and are reaffirming our fiscal year 2025 net sales and raising our guidance for net income per diluted share.”
