Vineyard Vines Opens Two New Stores and Takes Over Our Instagram

Vineyard vines seems to be experiencing a growth spurt. In early November the brand opened their first shop in Charleston, South Carolina on historic King Street. In the same month, brothers, CEO’s and co-founders, Ian & Shep Murray, opened at 1151 3rd Avenue on New York’s Upper East Side.

“We’ve had our sights set on a store in New York for quite some time” said Ian, CEO and co- founder of vineyard vines. “Having quit our jobs in Manhattan 16 years ago to start vineyard vines, returning to New York is truly a celebration of our hard work and success.”

As for the Charleston location (they bought the entire building and are already selling on 5,500 square feet of it), Shep had to say,“We have an incredibly loyal following in Charleston and are thrilled to be opening a store in such an iconic and beautiful East Coast city. We have built our business and brand awareness in Charleston through extremely successful relationships with longstanding wholesale accounts and locally held events, such as Charleston Race Week and the Southern Ground Music & Food Festival. Our new retail location on King Street will allow us to better support those partnerships and offer customers the opportunity to shop a broader selection of products; we couldn’t be more excited to get more involved in the Charleston community.”

The company known for it’s pink whale logo and it’s motto, ‘every day should feel this good,’ was founded in 1998 on Martha’s Vineyard. Starting with ties, the brothers now have a mega brand on their hands with men’s, women’s and children’s clothing and accessories on board.

The top 10 most expensive watches at the Met Gala
Ben Simmons wearing dress by Thom Browne departs for the 2024 Met Gala on a theme 'The Garden of Time' from The Pierre Hotel in New York on May 6, 2024.

The Met Gala serves up some of the most jaw-dropping looks on a silver platter (or in this case a red carpet) and this year's theme, the "Garden of Time" did not disappoint. Taking inspiration from J.G. Ballard's evocative 1962 short story, the imaginative theme was the perfect backdrop for celebrities to show off some of their most expensive watches.

The core of the theme was the passage of time, and the world's most famous faces seized the opportunity to break out some of their most extraordinary timepieces, ranging from classic to avant-garde designs. For those who see fashion as more than just pieces of fabric and jewelry as more than just an accessory, the watches at the 2024 Met Gala surely commanded attention.

Tissot: PRX Powermatic 80 35mm and 40mm in mint green

The Tissot PRX Automatic collection has had the watch industry in a chokehold for a while now, having coincided its launch impeccably with the surge in demand for luxury sports watches (an idea that still makes us do a double take). Tissot has slowly expanded its lineup, taking its time and taking inspiration from vintage models that they infused with an automatic movement.
