    Default Mark Cross Grace Quilted Leather Bag

    MARK CROSS Grace bag.jpg

    I have to admit, I have never heard of Mark Cross before. But I came across this curious-looking piece earlier today so I thought I should check this designer out. It turns out that Mark Cross was established in 1845 in Boston. At the time, they made saddles and harnesses. Later, they expanded their business to include luggage and other leather goods. Along the way, the company changed hands and even moved to Europe. And in 1997, Mark Cross closed its doors. It wasn't for forever though. In fact, Mark Cross was relaunched in 2010 with a handbag collection that is like no other.

    The boxy, almost lunchbox-like shape is actually very classic. Even a bit retro-ish. I love the bright fire engine red and simple grid pattern quilting. This piece is quite adorable and perfectly sized for just your essentials. Use it to add a little pop of color to a simple black outfit.

    $2595 over on NetaPorter

    Thank you for the history! I've never heard of this designer either. So pricey. When I first read your post and saw the bag I thought you misprinted the price. lol. The bag looks amazing, and I love their other designs that they have up on NAP. But at $2600 (straw version is just under $2k), I wonder if the quality is worth that hefty price tag.

    Yes, it is rather pricey. They are pretty neat though.
