J.Crew Goes Gritty Glam


Who knew that recent CFDA nominee Dana Lorenz, purveyor of “gritty glam” jewelry for line Fenton/Fallon (with a store on Freeman Alley to solidify her reputation), and J.Crew, the epitome of breezy All-American prep, would make such a great combination? After a series of chance meetings between Lorenz and J.Crew creative director Jenna Lyons, as well as unlikely commonalities between the two such as Michelle Obama, a collaboration was clearly in the cards. The result is a chic collection that stays true to Lorenz’s punk-bent aesthetic, yet fits in seamlessly with J. Crew’s range of classic clothes. In fact, all the edgy Fenton/Fallon elements are present – pyramid studs, industrial remnants and jumbled chains in various sizes and materials – at a fraction of the price, ranging from $95-295. The seven-piece collection is available now at J.Crew.
