The NYT interview with executive editor Bridget Foley addresses this technological shift and more.
Bravo, WWD! Hope to snap up a hard copy of this in the next few days. Some purchases can be rendered necessary on a “historical basis.” [Note: Said justification will someday be used when purchasing any of the following items: quilted Chanel bag, Cartier Love bracelet, a pair of Louboutins].
Over & Out for now.
