In the Bag

Jaqueline Zenere | January 18, 2017 | Lifestyle Story Shopping National

Grace Kelly famously packed her clothes in Alfred Hitchcock’s Rear Window using a Mark Cross overnight box, and the scene brought the American heritage brand to near stardom. As a purveyor of leather goods since 1845, the House of Mark Cross has successfully evolved from a Bostonian saddle and harness maker to now outfitting the international elite with jet-set gear.

In the inaugural travel collection, Mark Cross delivered four key luggage styles, each carrying familiar details we know and love: calfskin in an array of vibrant shades, brass enclosures, the signature crimson lining and topped with the golden embossed house name. Our favorite, in keeping with the brand’s spotlight moment, is the Grace trolley. It is handstitched and crafted in Italy with concealed wheels for mobility, which captures a timeless √©lan the bags’ namesake emitted throughout her stylish reign.
