7 for All Mankind Loses #1

If word on the street is true, Andreas Kurz, CEO of 7 for All Mankind, will be leaving (or has left) the premium jeans company. With no formal details at the time of this writing, news of this separation comes as a surprise considering Kurz filled the post only last March after founder Peter Koral sold half his company to Bear Stearns Merchant Banking.

Having garnered experience as CEO of Hugo Boss USA and Diesel USA, Kurz was poised to bring 7 for All Mankind into the luxury goods world stage through both its denim and non-denim products. One can only speculate how the company, already shunned by many denim-heads for being too mass marketed and mainstream, will change if Peter Koral takes back the reins.
