BELL RINGING FOR GRANOFF: Vince chief executive officer Jill Granoff rang the opening bell Monday at the New York Stock Exchange.

The contemporary brand completed its initial public offering on Friday, raising $200 million, higher than initially expected. Due to the number of firms going public on Friday, Granoff had to wait until Monday to ring the opening bell.
