    Default Mark Cross Grace Bag - inspired by Grace Kelly in Alfred Hitchcock's 'Rear Window'

    Mark Cross (est 1845)- Inspired by the brands rich heritage, the label was resurrected in 2011 to transform their classic styles into modern day everyday handbags. The best-selling Grace handbag collection, named after Grace Kelly, was produced with a dedication to fine craftsmanship and effortless elegance.

    Mark Cross is an American brand, that was founded in 1845 in Massachusetts, and at the time, specialized in horse harnesses and carriage saddles. Then in 1934 the namesake designer Mark Cross passed away, the reins went to Gerald Murphy. After seeing potential in the booming handbag market, and following the lead of other handbag designer at the time (such as Louis Vuitton and Whiting & Davis), Gerald Murphy took Mark Cross to the next level by expanding the brands offerings to include day handbags, cigarette cases (which were popular back then!), overnight luggage, and even jeweled evening bags which were made in collaboration with high-end luxury brand Seamen Schepps.

    The designer brand was an instant hit! Gracing the arms of celebrities of the day, and even appearing in blockbuster hits, such as Alfred Hitchcock's film 'Rear Window.' In fact, Mark Cross 'Grace' Bag was made inspired by the Mark Cross overnight luggage bag used by Grace Kelly.
