MARK CROSS


MARK CROSS
Proudly identified as America’s first luxury brand, Mark Cross was founded in 1845 as a Boston-based saddle- and harness-maker. A more glamorous identity emerged decades later under the ownership of Gerald Murphy, the legendary friend of F. Scott Fitzgerald who guided the company from 1934 to 1955. Among his creations, still coveted today: the iconic Grace Box bag for Grace Kelly’s role in Rear Window. Murphy’s dictum “Living well is the best revenge” and the company’s extensive archives continue to shape the brand today.
