The Champagne was probably flowing in the Burberry offices this week, as the British designer brand announced a 19% rise in profits.

Ka-ching.

While other luxury brands like Louis Vuitton and Mulberry are struggling, Burberry are laughing in the face of their bank manager with soaring sales.

The luxury retailer famed for their checks, trenches and now horse blankets, credits the spike in sales to Asia.



Having opened a Shanghai store this month and growing sales in mainland China, Hong Kong and South Korea, it seems Burberry is making the most of their Asian market, and they're not alone.

Forbes reported recently that Coach handbags have been struggling in North America, but have seen a 25% increase in sales in China.

Best it bags ever?
