13 London stores including Diane von Furstenberg and MaxMara franchises

Who you need to know Co-founders Ruth and Tom Chapman

Brands include Acne, Alexander McQueen, Bottega Veneta, Diane von Furstenberg, Gucci, Lanvin, Sunspel

Set up by husband and wife Ruth and Tom Chapman, luxury fashion indie Matches is a store that others put on a pedestal. A champion of new designers,  it offers one-off pieces by collaborating with selected, premium designers – in the past year, designer Jonathan Saunders launched a capsule collection for the London-based indie.

Matches’ like-for-like sales have risen 10% year on year. Tom Chapman says: “We’re fortunate to be in central London, which sits in a bubble compared with the rest of the UK.”
