MILAN — Penélope Cruz wowed the waiting crowd in Milan at the Carpisa store in Corso Vittorio Emanuele II on Wednesday evening with her appearance to promote her capsule collection with the brand.
In a blink-and-you’ll-miss-it-moment, the Spanish actress, wearing a maritime striped sweater, blue skinny jeans, a blue fedora and dark blue and black Isabel Marant over-the-knee boots, smiled and waved briefly to her fans outside the Carpisa boutique.
The Italian mass-market travel and carry-on manufacturing brand has tapped the Academy Award winner and her sister, Mónica Cruz, for a capsule that includes styles in different colors and models, ranging from pouches, shoppers, bucket bags and backpacks in suede, animal print and crocodile print. The collection hit stores last week. Penélope Cruz also appears in the ad campaign for the capsule for fall.
This is not the first venture for the look-alike sisters in the design world. The movie star and her younger sibling previously designed a collection of jewelry and handbags for Japanese retail chain Samantha Thavasa, as well as a 25-piece collection for Spanish chain Mango and collaborated on Agent Provocateur’s first diffusion line L’Agent.
