ZURICH, Nov 6 (Reuters) - Richemont's deal with Alibaba and Farfetch will help the Swiss luxury good group to build an "omnichannel" business and improve service to customers and doesn't signal a lack of confidence in its online distributor YNAP or a takeover of Farfetch, its chairman said.

"This is not some land grab or power grab," Johann Rupert told reporters on a call on Friday following the group's half-year results. "This is really the pursuit of building an omnichannel business."
