Is Jenna Lyons’ New Lover Jewelry Executive Courtney Crangi?The fashion industry has been dying to know the identity of the fashionable new woman in J.Crew president and creative director Jenna Lyons‘ love life. And according to reports Thursday morning, that woman is none other than jewelry executive Courtney Crangi.
Crangi and Lyons have been photographed together as far back as late 2008, but Page Six reports that the two didn’t fall in love until after Lyons began proceedings to divorce her husband, artist Vincent Mazeau, earlier this summer.
Speculation about Lyons’ new love erupted this week when Page Six suggested that Lyons was leaving Mazeau for another influential woman in the fashion industry, and Crangi matches that description. She is the CEO of her brother Philip Crangi‘s much-lauded eponymous jewelry line, and his secondary line Giles & Brother. In 2008, Crangi won the CFDA award for accessory design — and it would be remiss to think that his sister didn’t have anything to do with it.
Courtney and Lyons have apparently been friends for years, and they haven’t done anything to hide their newfound love:
Jenna and Courtney, a mother of three, have been spotted sharing romantic dinners at restaurants around the West Village and at some fashion events together. Friends say the new couple are quietly open about their relationship.
Still, we get the feeling we won’t be hearing a public statement of any kind from Lyons or Crangi any time soon. And so long as both of them are happy, that’s all we really need to know.
