British luxury brand Burberry posted a 22 percent rise in third-quarter revenue as wealthy shoppers and tourists, particularly in Asia, showed their resilience to shaky economies in Europe and the United States.

The 156-year-old seller of raincoats and leather goods, known for its camel, red and black pattern, said Tuesday it made 574 million pounds ($880 million) of revenues in the three months to December 31.

That compared with an average forecast of 569 million pounds in a Reuters poll, and with first-half growth of 29 percent. ($1 = 0.6524 pound)
