It Bag: Mark Cross



If you haven't seen Hitchcock's Rear Window, it's a must. Grace Kelly stars alongside James Stewart for a thriller. There is a scene, where Grace is packing up and while she is beautiful, so is the bag that she is putting her things into. I think this is probably what put Mark Cross on the map. Talk about good product placement, too... I mean who wouldn't want to carry a bag that Grace Kelly carries? But really... 
Mark Cross kind of fell off the map for a moment but it's back and better than ever. I am drooling over every piece and I can tell you that a Mark Cross bag will be my next 'big' purchase ('next' meaning in like 10 years, ha!). It's a truly timeless handbag that is impeccably crafted. My mom used to have a MC when she was my age and says it was one of her favorite handbags (why she ever got rid of it, I will never understand). The bags are pricey, but run in the same price range as Celine, Prada, Valentino, Givenchy, etc.

My favorite is the first option, the Grace, named after Grace Kelly. So elegant, timeless and luxurious... just like Grace herself! Do you love Mark Cross? Have a fabulous day!

I love that you posted about Mark Cross. I LOVE these bags and they definitely don't get the attention that they deserve. I have a vintage one from my mom and I love it. Great post!
