Richemont Sales Bolster Revival Hopes (FT): Richemont, the world's second-biggest luxury goods group, yesterday reinforced signs of a recovery in demand for expensive watches, jewellery and accessories with Christmas sales well ahead of expectations.

Burberry sales rise stronger-than-forecast 15% (Market Watch): U.K. luxury goods retailer Burberry reported a 15% rise in sales for its fiscal third quarter, sailing past analyst estimates, and the company said it now expects pretax profit for the year will reach the top end of market expectations.

Coach Profit Rises 11% on Holiday Sales (WSJ): Coach Inc.'s fiscal second-quarter earnings rose 11%, with a boost from holiday sales that improved over 2008's weak holiday season. Results beat Wall Street's expectations.
