Total direct-to-consumer revenue for the second quarter increased 19%, while digital commerce was flat to the prior year period despite exceptionally strong growth in 2020 due to temporary store closures and occupancy restrictions.

"Based on our strong first half results, along with strong underlying trends, we are raising our full year outlook, which continues to reflect gross margins above 2019 pre-pandemic levels and further improvement in our operating margin," said chief executive officer Stefan Larsson.
Looking ahead, PVH now anticipates a 26% to 28% increase in revenue this year. In June, it projected revenue growth around 22% to 24%.
