Tuesday’s merger between Net-a-Porter and Yoox, which will create the largest and most powerful luxury e-commerce group.

Here’s how Citibank described the combined entity in a note: “No other players match Yoox/NAP’s breadth of sourcing, client base, geographic reach, technological know-how, logistics efficiency and luxury expertise and relationships.”

Yes, presumably that means you, Amazon.

On the plus side, the combination of the two, which will be most apparent in their back-office operations, may lead to much better, faster delivery globally, more fun content on both sites (the Yoox chief executive, Federico Marchetti, calls the brand an “enter-tailer” — i.e., an entertaining e-tailer — while Net is more editorial in nature) and more personally tailored interaction.

The latter being, for me, the one eyebrow-raising bit of this marriage of equals.

After all, just think about the customer information now available to the group, which between the main sites (yoox.com and netaporter.com) and their fully owned brethren (theoutnet.com, mrporter.com, shoescribe.com and thecorner.com) will have a giant foothold in beauty, men’s wear, women’s wear, sale shopping and shoe shopping.

Why I Fast on Mondays

Monday: oh, the duality of it. I love Monday and I also hate it with a deep passion. I hate that it will take a full 5 days for the weekend/nachos to arrive. I hate that I have to answer my emails. I hate that my alarm goes off and wakes me from my Sunday slumber. Yet, once I’m conscious I remember that I love waking up early on a summer Monday, hitting the streets before 8am when the city is still sleepy and heading out for a slow sweat at SLT. I love hitting the re-set button and having another chance to do and be. I also love fasting on Mondays, my chosen day of the week to detox until dinnertime (if you’re forced to begin your week, you may as well dive in head first).
