A DIFFERENT CROWD: Tourneau chief executive officer Jim Seuss brought a little of his fashion past to an otherwise suit-swarmed party at Tourneau’s flagship on 57th Street last night. Seuss said of the difference between the event and soirees at previous company Cole Haan, “Normally I’m used to a lot more of a fashion crowd…and there’s men here! It’s been really interesting….Hopefully I’m bringing some new energy and excitement to the watch world.” Among the guests were lawyer-turned-media-magnate Dan Abrams, jewelry designer Anna Sheffield and former creative director for Harry Winston and co-founder of design company Omhu, Susy Korb.
The gathering was Seuss’ first as ceo, and was hosted by Leonard Green & Partners, a private equity firm and owner of the Tourneau brand.
Seuss mentioned that Tourneau had hired architect firm 8 Inc. (who has designed for Apple and Coach) to redesign the company’s store on 53rd Street, and planned to unveil the new look in June.
