NEW YORK — Ian and Shep Murray are bringing Martha’s Vineyard to Memphis. The duo behind the highly popular Vineyard Vines sportswear label has partnered with the Levy family, owners of Memphis’s renowned specialty retailer Oak Hall, to open a new 6,000-square-foot Vineyard Vines by Oak Hall store in January—the first of its kind South of the Mason-Dixon line.
“Oak Hall is a great store and the Levy family has been doing an exceptional business with us for many years,” said Vineyard Vines CEO and cofounder Ian Murray. “They are doing so well with our product and our line has gotten so extensive that it’s really hard to give it the space and attention it needs without having its own store.”
“I see things on the hanger and I’m, like, ‘I never knew that color worked on me.’ It’s things you necessarily wouldn’t choose to wear, but once you put them on, you see why Janie is who Janie is." — Lily Collins on working with former "Mad Men" costume designer, Janie Bryant on creating looks for her role as Celia Brady's in Amazon series, "The Last Tycoon." 📸@jilliansollazzo #wwdeye
