Camila Alves’ Muxo Handbags | New Tribal Purses Designed by Matthew McConaughey’s Girlfriend

Posted on: Jan 8

Muxo Fringe BagIt seems Matthew isn't the only talent in the McConaughey household. The actor's model partner Camila Alves recently held a trunk show to introduce her Muxo handbag line.

Don't mistake this collection as the work of yet another celebrity turned designer, or worse yet, the pet project of a bored housewife. Alves began work on the line some five years ago with her mother, a former fashion and interior designer.

The leather bags embody the family's Brazilian heritage, with their fringe details and flower appliqués. The look has been described as "Gossip Girl meets Pocahontas," and after looking at a few of the purses I'd say that's pretty spot on.

While traveling the world for modeling gigs Alves longed for a unique bag that survived her busy lifestyle.

"Every handbag I had would break or fall apart," she said. "The ones that did stay together, the label handbags, everybody else would have it."

From humble beginnings in her garage, the line has grown to feature more than 60 purses, including totes, shoulder bags, satchels, and clutches.

"We still touch every single bag," she said. "We do the distressing. We don’t teach that to anybody, and you can’t machine copy it."

The Muxo bags are priced from $212 for small shoulder purses to $1800 for the stunning Queen of the Sea handbag pictured. They're available online through the Muxo website.
