MatchesFashion.com co-founders are listing their stylish 1960s Los Angeles home for $42 million

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

The sale of their business placed them in the ranks of the wealthiest fashion entrepreneurs. It seems, however, that they are not just business savvy when it comes to fashion. They’ve amassed quite an impressive real estate portfolio, which includes a Los Angeles home at Trousdale Estates. They bought this home on Trousdale Place for $24 million in 2017 and are now selling it for $42 million after a full four-year renovation.

Trousdale Estates is one of Beverly Hills’ most coveted communities, attracting global billionaires and wealthy tech entrepreneurs for its privacy and sleek mega-mansions with incredible views of Los Angeles. This property is no exception. For the renovation, the couple enlisted designer Pamela Shamshiri of Los Angeles-based Studio Shamshiri to completely reimagine the home, which was first built in 1962.
