More than a quarter of French Connection sales were made online in the first half of its financial year – with half of ecommerce sales coming via mobile devices.

The fashion retailer said today that 26.5% of group retail revenue was generated online in the six months to July 31. That’s up from 22.3% at the same time last year, and comes following a steady growth in the proportion of sales taking place on the internet in recent years.

At the same time, mobile and tablet sales accounted for 50% of ecommerce revenues – up from 47% last time. This, said French Connection, came as the retailer focused on customer relationship management (CRM) and targeted social media advertising.
