This week, rumors concerning the finances of Something Navy and the marriage of the company’s founder, Arielle Charnas, and her husband, Brandon, surfaced on the Instagram gossip account DeuxMoi and the message boards of Reddit.
As a result, the couple has decided to speak out publicly about the situation. Matthew Scanlan, the chief executive officer of Something Navy, responded to the allegations of misappropriation by telling Women’s Wear Daily that “this is false.”
“Brandon Charnas does not have the authorization to access any of the company’s bank accounts. He is not an employee of the corporation, hence the company has denied him access to any of its facilities.”
In addition, his real estate company refuted allegations that it had committed any financial misdeeds. “Current Real Estate was one of the companies that Brandon Charnas helped start.
At this time, there have been no instances of theft or fraud at Current Real Estate “WWD was told by a spokesperson.
In response to the widespread speculation that Arielle Charnas and Brandon Charnas are separating, a spokesperson for Arielle told Page Six the following: “This is demonstrably not the case.
They are deeply in love and have a happy marriage.” The Charnases, who tied the knot in 2014, now have three little girls of their own.
Arielle Charnas, who has 1.3 million followers on Instagram, has disabled the ability for users to leave comments on her posts in response to the rumors that have been circulating on the internet.
At the time of this writing, her most recent image shows her wearing a timeless OOTD while walking the streets of New York City while holding a cup of coffee (outfit of the day post). The remark was made by her husband.
This is not the first time that the couple has been the subject of heightened attention from the general public.
Reportedly, Arielle disregarded shelter-in-place rules to go into self-imposed isolation in the Hamptons during the early days of the COVID-19 pandemic.
She added in a statement that was published at the time on her Instagram that they remained in isolation at their house in New York City for fourteen days.
“Once we properly monitored our symptoms and determined that a) we had not had a fever for at least 72 hours, b) all symptoms had improved, and c) at least seven days had passed since our symptoms first appeared, we decided to leave the city after several consultations with doctors who granted us permission,” she said.
“Once we left the city, we properly monitored our symptoms and determined that a) we had not had a fever for at least 72 hours, b) all symptoms had improved, and
She went on to say, “We all make mistakes, including me, especially when a situation such as this is unfolding so quickly.” “We all make mistakes, including me.”
My family and I want to extend our sincere apologies to anyone we may have offended by giving the impression that we are not taking this problem as seriously as it deserves, and we are committed to making decisions that are both informed and responsible moving ahead.
Something Navy, which is owned by Charnas, was initially sold only at Nordstrom but will eventually branch out into its retail operation.
According to WWD, the company has a total of four retail locations, and its investors include names such as Beliead Ventures, L Catterton, Vanterra Capital, Box Group, Jenny Fleiss, Silas Capital, Third Kind Venture Capital, SWAT Equity, Black Jays Ventures, and The Seed Lab.
Arielle, whose children with Brandon are Ruby, 6, Esme, 4, and Navy, 18 months, founded Something Navy as a blog in 2009.
According to Business Insider, after more than a decade, the brand has evolved into a clothing line and is valued at $100 million as of November 2021.
According to WWD, Arielle’s first collection with Nordstrom, Treasure & Bond, debuted in 2017 and sold more than $1 million in a single day.
The following year, Arielle collaborated with the retail giant to debut her Something Navy line, which, according to the site, sold over $4.4 million in 24 hours.
The pair, who married the knot in 2014, reevaluated their connections in March 2020 in light of their rapidly expanding individual careers.
Brandon told Barbara Corcoran in a joint interview with Arielle in March 2020, “The problem is that she offers too much.”
“She believes that everything should be unconditional, but at the end of the day, you just have your family and your friends—there is always a transaction taking place.”
Brandon acknowledged that he “knew” the nature of such connections, but he added that one aspect will always predominate. “Do whatever makes you happy,” he advised. As long as you have a family and children, nothing else matters.
