TOKYO — Thom Browne is plotting his future with his new Japanese partner, Cross Company.
The company, which manages a string of multibrand fashion retailers and manufactures apparel, agreed this month to buy a 20 percent stake in Browne’s business for an undisclosed sum. Cross and its president, Yasuharu Ishikawa, will also establish a new company called Thom Browne Japan to oversee the brand’s business here; its first order of business will be to open a Thom Browne flagship in Tokyo in fall 2010.
