Matchesfashion to move head office to The Shard

Matchesfashion.com will move its London head office from Clapham Common to The Shard in the second quarter of this year, as it plots further international expansion.

The luxury retailer, which was founded in 1987, will relocate to a new 35,000 sq ft office on the seventh and eighth levels of The Shard. The space is also occupied by jewellery firm Tiffany and law firm GTM.

Matchesfashion co-executive chairman Tom Chapman said: “In our 28 years in luxury Ruth and I have never felt more inspired about the opportunities ahead – marked by this move to The Shard, the peak of London’s iconic skyline.”

300 of its 500 employees will be located at the new office.

“We will see five of our London offices come together and strengthen the interconnectivity between departments, from buying to tech, ecommerce and content,” said Chapman.

“This inspirational working environment will maximise out unique position as the only true modern luxury shopping destination and continue to attract the best talent.”

Matchesfashion appointed former Harvey Nichols buying controller Richard Johnson as commercial director at the start of this year to oversee its global buying team across womenswear and menswear.

Founders Tom and Ruth Chapman stepped down as joint chief executives in July 2015, after 27 years.

Matchesfashion has four London stores in Marylebone, Notting Hill, Richmond and Wimbledon and sells its portfolio of 400 brands to customers in 176 countries.

The business predicts its sales will more than triple in the next four years, reaching £425m by 2019.
