Monthly Muse: Julia Muniz Robinson

Monthly Muse: Julia Muniz Robinson

Founder of Maoi Swim, model, surfer and mother; we sat down with Brazilian-born entrepreneur Julia Muniz Robinson, for the February edition of our Monthly Muse series. 

The epitome of a Wolf Gang girl; Julia exudes a worldy, free spirited attitude and is forever chasing the sun, touring the world with her pro-surfer husband Jack Robinson, and newborn baby Zen.

Recently stepping into motherhood, Julia has spent little time away from the ocean as she raises her bub and runs her brand, surrounded by seashells and surfboards. From being the face of our Santa Elena collection for W23 to wearing TWG in her everyday life, we are so excited to have the beautiful Julia as our Monthly Muse for February 2024.

Best advice for those wanting to get into surfing?
For those wanting to get into surfing, my best advice is to get out there and surf! Improvement comes with practice, so don’t be shy. Remember, everyone started somewhere.

Who is your fashion inspiration?
I draw inspiration from multiple people for different styles, as I’m really eclectic and enjoy dressing for summer vibes but also love dressing up. Icons like Elsa Hosk, Chloe Lecareux, and Camila Coelho inspire me with their diverse styles and fearless fashion choices.


What is one thing everyone should have in their wardrobe?
Everyone should have capsule pieces in their wardrobe that they can interchange between outfits. A black and white bodysuit paired with well-fitted linen shorts or pants is a must-have for effortless chic looks.
