S, the upmarket womenswear chain, enjoyed a surge in sales over the Christmas trading period, boosted by a record online trading.

The chain said total sales rose 16.4 per cent in the 10 weeks to 5 January, driven by a 60 per cent jump in online sales. That compared with a six per cent rise in store sales.

Chairman Iain MacRitchie said the retailer achieved good growth across all labels and channels, “despite a tough trading environment”.
