Every time, I’ve flipped through a tabloid while getting my hair done, or at the dentist’s office, there is inevitably a shot of a shirtless Matthew McConaughey romping on some beach in Malibu, pictured with his wife Camila Alves and their kids in tow. From the sheer repetition of photos of Alves in a bikini on the sand, you might think that she had no greater ambition than to work on her tan.
Not so! Along with modeling consistently since she was 19 and raising two children full time, Alves has also designed handmade handbags for the past six years. The line is called Muxo, and was created by Alves and her mother, inspired by her native Brazil and New York City, with a touch of Malibu (of course, all that beach romping had to inspire something). The leather hand bags feature a lot of fringe, many are large enough to stylishly tote your laptop along with your lipstick, there’s even a line of chic diaper bags…
Alves will be hosting a trunk show of her latest styles at Nordstrom’s Westfield Topanga next Friday, December 16. 12:00 pm – 5:00 pm.
