J.Crew president and creative director Jenna Lyons, newly split from her artist husband, Vincent Mazeau, could be expecting some jewelry in her future, having fallen for another influential woman in the fashion industry.
Page Six can reveal that the fashion executive Jenna is seeing, following her messy split with her husband of nine years, is Courtney Crangi, 38, the business brains behind her brother, hip celebrity jeweler Philip Crangi.
We revealed on Tuesday that Jenna, 43, and Vincent, whom she wed in 2002, are in the middle of an ugly divorce after splitting in the summer. They have a 5-year-old son, Beckett.
A fashion insider told us: “After the breakup, Jenna fell in love with Courtney, whom she had been friends with for some time. They’ve known each other for years through the fashion business.
“Courtney is an attractive blonde who balances working hard with her family.”
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.
Courtney runs the business side of CFDA award-winning Philip Crangi Jewelry and the line Giles & Brother, which is a favorite of Gwyneth Paltrow, Cameron Diaz and Rachel McAdams.
Lyons -- a striking figure and an icon for fashion lovers, having influenced the style of shoppers from Main Street to Michelle Obama -- and Mazeau have appeared on the style pages of both fashion and home magazines, showcasing their enviable Park Slope brownstone.
A source told us, “It’s a difficult time for Jenna and Courtney. Jenna’s divorce is really ugly but it’s great she has someone who is there for her.”Follow @PageSix
