Frasers, which was formerly called Sports Direct and is on a drive to move upmarket, said it now holds 4.3% of Hugo Boss stock directly and a further 30.03% via the sale of derivatives known as put options.

Hugo Boss is a supplier to the group's House of Fraser and Flannels chains.

Frasers has a long history of making strategic investments to develop relationships with other retailers.
