Brand Ori­gin Bos­ton

Back­ground Founded in 1845 as one of the first lux­ury leather houses in the us, Mark cross closed its doors in the 1990s; the her­itage la­bel was re­vived in 2011. Tak­ing in­spi­ra­tion from its vintage ar­chives and us­ing tra­di­tional pro­duc­tion meth­ods, the brand fuses con­tem­po­rary aes­thet­ics with its rich past.

Brand Sig­na­ture With a history dat­ing back 170 years, it’s not sur­pris­ing that the Mark cross ar­chives pro­vide a key source of in­spi­ra­tion. The brand’s most famed piece is the grace Box bag—which has been re­vamped and repack­aged for a con­tem­po­rary feel.

LATEST col­lec­tion Stick­ing to sleek aes­thet­ics, sig­na­ture Mark cross pieces have been rein­tro­duced in new colours and ma­te­ri­als. Sat­u­rated hues in blood or­ange, aubergine and emer­ald add in­ter­est to leather quilting, hair­calf and python. The sea­son’s no­table new pieces are the Hart car­ryall and the rear Win­dow overnight case; the lat­ter is repli­cated from the brand’s ar­chives and was fa­mously car­ried by grace kelly in the 1954 Hitch­cock film.
