BOSTON, Nov. 5, 2019 /PRNewswire/ -- Grapevine Logic, a wholly owned subsidiary of Ideanomics, Inc. (Nasdaq: IDEX), has today launched five brand partnerships with direct to consumer brands onto their global e-commerce marketplace on the heels of their launch last week. These partnerships include:
Diego dalla Palma
Founded in 1970 in Milan, Italy, Diego Dalla Palma is an internationally recognized icon within the beauty industry. Sold throughout Europe and the U.S., Diego Dalla Palma is known for its fashionable, high quality, innovative and long-lasting products.
100% Grade A cashmere hoodies, scarves and hats designed by famous TV personality Yang Lang, that are sustainably sourced from inner Mongolia.

Holy Grail Steak Co.
Certified by the Kobe-Niku, Holy Grail is the only online source for genuine Kobe Beef; it is also the exclusive supplier for Chateau Uenae 's Hokkaido Snow Beef and Private Reserve offerings - perhaps the planet's rarest beef.
These brand partnerships are distinguished by the high quality of products. "Unlike many other e-commerce stores where the quality of product can be lacking, the brands we're curating for distribution on Grapevine are, by necessity, top-of-the-line," said Grapevine Village CEO, Kristen Standish. "We've received very enthusiastic responses from creators on the caliber of products they'll be able to promote through Grapevine Village."
In addition, Grapevine Village also announces its new service, Grapevine Audio, to connect musicians with creators and brands looking for easy-to-license music and audio to include in posts without the hassle of negotiating fees with large record labels. This launch will be accompanied by performances during the event from rising stars Jonny Glenn, Jon Robert Byrne, and Yoyo Ibarra, one of Cuba's top recording artists.
"With today's 'always-connected' consumers inundated with content, entrepreneurial artists like myself need to seek alternative ways to gain a following," said Yoyo Ibarra. "Grapevine Audio allows me to contribute music directly to posts created by consumers and brands alike that can potentially be seen by millions of fans around the world."
