The CFDAs are over, Pippa is losing best-ass contests, and the fashion flock is off hiding from the city in beach mansions, yachts, houseboats, etc. And so, with slow season officially here, Reuters delivers this breaking news from the front lines of the FT Luxury Summit in Lausanne, Switzerland: "Thierry Andretta, chief executive of France's oldest fashion brand Lanvin, has found a radical remedy against the avalanche of emails he gets every day: he has declared Wednesday an email free day." This is an amazing idea; however, "there was not much enthusiasm internally" over adopting it as companywide policy.
