A214887 - Muxo by Camila Alves Soft Pebble Leather Tote
perfect carry on
Just used this bag as a carry on again. It's perfect. Lots of pockets inside & out. I have received many compliments and people asking where I got it. QVC of course.
I've been looking for a great work bag for a while, and I think I found it! This bag is huge, in a good way. I can fit my files, lunch, snacks, and smaller crossbody bag with no problem. The angled pockets are probably my favorite feature. I fit my umbrella on one side and my travel mug in the other pocket. The lining is not too busy and it's easy to find things. The leather is soft and luxurious. I can load up the bag, and it still feels comfortable. The grey color is a taupe shade that goes with everything. This bag is different, but not too crazy for a conservative professional environment. If there were other colors available, I would definitely get them. I will keep an eye on this handbag line for future purchases. Camila, how about more bags with the angled pockets and a zip closure?
I'm a big bag girl but this bag is huge! It's beautiful leather with lots of compartments but unless you are carrying ALOT of stuff, it's just too big. It would make a great carry on for travel. Sadly had to return mine because it dwarfed my other big bags and was just too big.
LOVE THIS BAG !!!!!!!!!!!
Oh Goodness, where do I start.......I ordered the gray and I love it, I love the linen lining, one of my biggest pet peeves is a dark or busy lining ,where it:s hard to see anything, This purse is large, which is perfect for me , I love the deep pockets on the exterior which is greatt for quick access to important items. I have a deep love for nice bags and this one is just what the doctor ordered ! I have received several compliments from strangers .probably more on this purse than any I have owned. It is unique , kinda boho chiic ,I am 53 years old and still love that twist in the design. The gray is so neutral and goes with everything.............Gray is the new black for me ,I can:t get enough of it. I am so glad I tried this brand......this is my first purchase of a MUXO bag so high end , functional, I am a New FAN ,and this line will be my go to for great purses in the furture....Grab the gray one before it sells out , you will fall in love.
I love this bag. I get stopped very freqently while carrying it, with compliments and thie big question "What line is that bag from?" The leather is supple & of the highest quality. I own many high priced handbags, but this line has such a special LOOK, that you don't find anywhere else. I especially love the the handles on this bag, so comfortable, you can load it up & carry it with ease. Once the secret gets out, Camilla will be in all the stores
REALLY NICE BUT NOT GOOD ENOUGH
Luv this bag! I did check the straps and I see how the trim could come undone.
I would have given this 5 stars except for the strap trim being a little iffy and the front snap pocket is not attached well.
It is centered. One side is attached quite well. The other side, not so good. I would never put my heavy wallet in the pocket because I do believe it would cause the front pocket to pull away from the body of the bag.
With better quality control, this could be a fabulous line!
FAB BAG BUT FIX ISSUES
Thought this bag was great! Size excellent for me with kids, wasn't too heavy and sooooo stylish. Oh and the organization-great! Problems as another reviewer said, my whipstitching is coming apart after carrying bag for only 1 week. The leather around the kiss and lock hardware looks like it is pulling as if it will pull from hardware. So even with all the fab qualities cannot keep a bag of such price with defects. What will happen over time?
Best ever bag
When I first received the two of these bags in the black and the chamois, I felt that I should return them as I did not care for the linen lining.....WELL...I didn't return them, just set them aside for a week and when I re-examined them, had gained an appreciation for the overall style and quality of the soft leather and so, decided to overlook the linen lining and keep them both. Am I glad I did! These bags have become my staple for work and travel. I have come to appreciate the linen and it has also gotten softer with use. Surprisingly, it has not become dirty despite being such a light color. The front "purse pocket" keeps all my absolute essentials: keys, change and security badges readily available and secure. This is a fabulous bag and I only hope it holds up for a long, long time. As I have been carrying it constantly and it still looks and feels great, I believe that it will go the distance. While I like Bruce's bags, this brand is more bohemian and the leather is every bit as wonderful if not more so. Comfortable, slouchy and oh, so soft! Have ordered the woven leather bag (in two colors no less) and cannot wait to receive it.
OMG - FABULOUS!!!
Ordered the gray one first, notice I said first. This is a large bag, so anyone not liking to be able to pack everything you need to run away from home, don't order. After receiving the gray one, I HAD to order the black and beige also. I own my own business and need to carry my laptop or Ipad when traveling, plus other necessary papers along with my usual wallet, glasses, etc. that all we women need to carry everyday. So I bought this for on the road but have been using it for just everyday around town. The leather is very soft and supple. Organization is out of this world, lots of pockets on the outside and inside. The lining is not your usual slinky fabric more a good quality cotton, will wear like iron and is not a black hole. I find that my items don't slide around as much inside on this lining. The contrasting lacing on the outside is eye-catching but not too over the top with hardware. The weight is not heavy for a large handbag, in fact, I have several B. Makowsky bags that are smaller and heavier (because of the extra hardware and accents). Also own the Kiss -lock handbag in this line. I have over 200 handbags of all top brands you can think of - but Muxo is becoming one of my favorite lines. Can't wait for more.
More MUXO always
"I LOVE LOVE LOVE this bag. I have all three colors plus an extra one in the beige. I ordered the first bag when it was introduced during fashion week, its first airing. Since I made my purchases, I have not carried any other bag to work. On the weekends, I'm always sadden that I have to switch to smaller crossbody bag to run my errands or shopping expeditions. The front pocket is roomy, accessible, and secure. The leather is like b-u-t-t-a; it's velvety soft, very pliable. There are pockets for organization: each side of the bag has pockets large enough to hold a water bottle. The interior has pockets on either side of the walls of the bag; its large enough to accommodate a laptop and / or legal size documents. The bag doesn't start off heavy so you can stuff it if you need to do so. In fact, it can double as a chic gym or baby bag. I read some of the reviews which noted that the quality of their bag was not optimal. Like I said I have 4 of these bags and not one of them has been defective in any way. I brought the extra bag because I use the bag daily and never want to be without it. Trust me this is one purchase you will not regret. I am a bagaholic and some what of a leather snob. I own at least 300 bags; and, this is my favorite work bag. Another bonus is you won't see your self coming and going carrying this beauty. I'm petitte ( 5' 2" siize 10) but I like to carry big bags. The size of this bag doesn't overwhelm me. This is my second review of this bag. The first review which I put a lot of time into writing didn't get posted because I named other designers. I mention it because I wanted to let you know that my love for this bag inspired me to sing it's praises once again. In fact, I'm been contemplating purchasing a second set even though each of my bags look like they did when I first got them because I don't want to be without this unique bag. This is quality. Oh yeah, I nearly forgot to mention that the picture doesn't do it justice. Buy the bag, if for some reason it's not for you, send it back."
So sad to have to send back...
I loved this bag. It is so beautiful and different. Unfortunately, the leather of the whip stitching was partly ripped in 2 places so it wouldn't have been long before it ripped through and came undone. The edges of the leather whip stitching was also fraying a bit so it looked lived-in long before it should have. I returned it but I hated to do it. I just got a different Muxo in the post today and can't wait to move into it.
Oh, My Goodness!
Wow! This bag is SO special...So lush & luxurious...Feels so good nestled next to the body...What more can I say? I purchased this bag in the gray color, and it is so neutral that it works in well with many colors and gemstone jewelry. Camia makes luxury bags that rivals the best. I own many nice handbags, but find myself reaching for my Muxos...Like an old trusted friend. I also have two of her fringed crinkle lamb cross body bags in black and taupe. I keep coming back because her leather is so soft and moldable yet strong. These bags become part of you, not like some bags that you have to fight to be comfortable with.
