Mark Cross Company Bags to Barneys | Resurrected American Accessories Label Launches

Posted on: Jan 26

Mark Cross Grace BagsIt's been some time coming, but Mark Cross Company bags will finally be back in stores.

The accessories from the American heritage label were favorites of Cole Porter, Ernest Hemmingway, and F. Scott and Zelda Fitzgerald. However when the company folded in 1997 it seemed it would become the stuff of fashion legend. Enter new chief executive officer and president Neal J. Fox, who snapped up the trademark and resuscitated the business.

It hasn't all been smooth sailing though. The label's new bags were scheduled to hit Saks Fifth Avenue in an exclusive deal in early December. However it seems that deal fell through, as now they're slated to arrive exclusively in Barneys boutiques on January 30.

I love the way Mark Cross' Collection 1 pays homage to the past, with its retro silhouettes and classic hues. The Grace bags pictured are trunk style accessories which recall the moment in Rear Window when Grace Kelly proudly demonstrated to Jimmy Stewart how much her Mark Cross case could hold. There's also the Madison Mini, a small purse fashioned after the label's vintage doctor bags, and the sleek Scottie satchel.

Are you excited to see the new Mark Cross Company collection finally hitting stores?
