Google partners with... Publicis and Conde Nast?

Yes. To build "La Maison". Could be huge PR gig as the press is not very informed about what exactly the partnership means and why Google would engage in such an enterprise. "La Maison" is supposed to be a platform to understand and reach buyers of luxury products with content and commerce. Publicis understanding how to advertise to such a community, Conde Nast knowing how to create appealing luxury content, and Google providing the data. Sounds like it makes sense, but what this will mean on a "freont end" for the customer or even for a Conde Nast editor, Publicis account director, LVMH product manager or Google... well... what? Data analyst? All this is unclear to me following the press. But I'll have an eye on "La Maison".
