  1. Glad you shared the WSJ article with Karl Lagerfeld reporting his opinions to the European Commission on ‘Luxury Internet Sales’. I was unaware this topic was on the table and will be watching the conversation, but unfortunately, the article did not clarify what exactly was at stake, leaving me with more questions than answers.
