Cruz and her sister, a dancer and TV actress already design a collection of jewelry and handbags for the Japanese retail chain Samantha Thavasa.
The handbag line, called Samantha Thavasa by Penélope and Monica Cruz, is also sold in the Madrid-born actress' own store, Amarcord, a 1,000-square-foot location in Madrid's tony Salamanca area.
"I select every item, color and size myself,'' Penélope Cruz has said. "It's a reflection of my taste and what I wear." There is a mix of casual fashion, a few party dresses and accessories "at decent prices," she pointed out. The store's star brands are Theory and the French brand Maje — and Cruz has said she loves both.
