The group, which has 81 UK retail stores, said total sales in the 13 weeks to July 29 were up 20% at £40.2m (€50.2M), while like-for-like sales rose by 1.7%.
The company, which was founded in Cheltenham in 1985 by chief executive Julian Dunkerton, said its sales of jackets, gilets and sweatshirts proved that the Superdry range offered a degree of protection against the weather.
Supergroup has endured a stormy period, in which its chief executive of wholesale and international stepped down, annual profits fell by 15% and it was forced to slow expansion plans.
