It’s been an interesting year for siblings/business partners Philip and Courtney Crangi. They launched Giles & Brother jewelry over a decade ago, but thanks to Courtney’s highly publicized relationship with J.Crew president Jenna Lyons, a whole new set of eyes are watching them.
But here’s what’s so refreshing: Where most would be tightlipped in response to a sudden onslaught of gossip regarding their personal life, the Crangis acknowledge that Courtney’s relationship is a point of interest for press, embracing it in the most positive way.
Last we spoke, I was living in Cambridge, MA working on StyleUp between my MIT Sloan classes. Now, I’m in Mountain View, CA working StyleUp full-time. It’s amazing and crazy and daunting and strange and wonderful. Recently, my co-founder and I even raised a little bit of investment capital which makes me feel like I’m just starting to make it as an entrepreneur. There is a very long road ahead, but I thought it might be useful to hear a few things I’ve learned so far.
Thought you’d seen it all when Jennifer Lawrence face-planted in Dior? Wait ’til you see her standing upright in Calvin Klein Collection! Anne Hathaway? She’s got more than that little Prada (and, well, Armani) number up her sartorial sleeve. And Britney Spears? We know you’re dying to see what she wore last night! (Hint: It’s potentially the best she’s ever looked–and for once, we’re not being sarcastic.)

Going to the J.Crew presentation yesterday was like being a kid in a candy shop. (Really, though, I prefer salty things but no one ever says “like a kid at a store full of chips”, so, moving on.) The retailer’s fall 2013 collection was so rich in saturated jewel tones, so boldly printed, so unabashedly covered in shimmering embellishments, it was truly eye candy.
We’re approaching the home stretch of New York Fashion Week, which means many of our attitudes have shifted from excited and energetic to when-will-this-be-over? So, we asked some of fashion’s busiest bees to tell us what they do to stay sane (and no we don’t mean pharmaceuticals–though those certainly aren’t off-limits). From Jenna Lyons’ many coats, to BryanBoy’s cathartic Instagramming, click through for their (and our) tips and tricks!
In only eight seasons, SUNO has become the place to be on NYFW’s first Friday. Everyone packed into Milk’s tiny show space from the Courtin-Clarins girls to the Russian street style starlets to Jenna Lyons to, well, everyone. The scene inside was extra jammed because the center row of seats that usually divides the runway was taken out to make room for the prop tee-pee and scattered white rocks that set the stage for the more baroque, nature-inspired fall 2013 collection.
During a day of running around Manhattan while the rest of civilization preps for the Blizzard-pocalypse (twenty inches! maybe!), the Fashionista team took in shows from Richard Chai, Dannijo, Timo Weiland, Costello Tagliepietra and more. On the way we snapped Scott and Garance in the act, fashion’s silver fox Nickelson Wooster, and Jenna Lyons rocking the most envy endoucing leopard coat and bubblegum pants backstage at Kimberly Ovitz. We could not want to be her more.
