Minka Kelly sported the IllBeCa by Joy Gryson Duane Street messenger bag as she left Salon Benjamin on Thursday in Los Angeles. The Gryson line gives three percent of its profits to three different charities, including Memorial Sloan-Kettering, the 9/11 Memorial Fund and Family Focus Adoption Center, for a total of a nine percent contribution. The ‘Butler’ star not only looked chic wearing the messenger bag, but also contributed to the three charities.
Joy Gryson launched her Gryson brand of luxury accessories in 2006. The brand has garnered attention for collaborating with Target for a limited time during the retailer’s guest designer program. It has also been nominated for the CFDA accessories designer of the year award for emerging talent.
The Gryson brand has also been distributed to retailers in over 20 countries. The brand has been sold in such stores as Holt Renfrew, Neiman Marcus, Bergdorf Goodman, Barney’s New York and Saks 5th Ave.
