Mickey Drexler Sits Down With Bloomberg

Yes, you have twenty minutes to watch/listen to this interview (click here please).

We're getting pummeled with mindless, vapid, senseless information ("brands who fail to embrace omnichannel are destined for the scrapheap of history").  I mean, Amazon is 25% of e-commerce, and 52 companies comprise 75% of all e-commerce sales.  Channels are irrelevant.  Merchandise is everything!

This interview is the opposite of mindless, vapid, senseless information.  You'll hear interesting thoughts about the future of retail and e-commerce, based on experience, success, and failure.  What could be better than that?

Hint - he cares about merchandise.

Merchandise.
