MatchesFashion.com Co-Founders List Their Stylish 1960s Los Angeles Home For $42 Million

Neighborhood

It was in 1987 when husband-and-wife duo Tom and Ruth Chapman founded MatchesFashion. Back then, however, it was a friendly neighborhood store in the posh London suburb of Wimbledon. Their business, eventually renamed MatchesFashion.com, was one of the first multi-brand luxury retailers to enter into the e-commerce space. That paid off—in 2017 the couple sold their company for roughly $535 million to private investors (Apax Partners), and the brand has continued to expand and evolve since.
