J. Press celebrated its new association with the Cremieux collection at a party at its Madison Avenue store Thursday night. The event, which was hosted by the company’s chief executive officer, Kazutoshi Yamaguchi, drew some men’s wear industry stallwarts as well including Corneliani’s Roger Cohen, Barbara Blank of J.S. Blank neckwear, Fred Derring of the DLS Outfitters buying group and Peter Hunsinger of GQ. Making a surprise appearance was Richard Press, the grandson of the J. Press founder, whose heirs sold the business to its current owners, Onward Kashiyama, in 1986. Press, who was with Ivy Style blogger Christian Chensvold, said he was going to pick up one of the new Cremieux shirts as a birthday present for his 18-year-old nephew. Chensvold has been featuring an extensive Q&A with Press on his Website all week. Also greeting guests were Stephane Cremieux, son of the label’s founder Daniel Cremieux, and Martin Miller, who discovered the brand in St. Tropez 11 years ago and brought it to the States.
