Mark Cross “Overnight Sensation”

Mark Cross Gracie Bag

Regarde mes amis, whilst (killing time) conducting my usual thorough research I came across this truly amazing piece of cinematic memorabilia being auctioned on the Christie’s website. The actual, (as in touched by the hand of Grace Kelly!) Mark Cross “overnight bag” which featured in the 1954 movie ” Rear Window“. The bag sold for a not too shabby $5,019! As you know, I have been having something of a “Rear Window”, moment. Something to do with the long cold evenings no doubt… Having recently re-launched, the Mark Cross brand has a certain Je ne sais pas ce que. It is true to its vintage heritage whilst being instantly fresh yet classic. There is something incredibly “grown up” about these handbags, it almost makes one feel as though one were playing ‘dress up’ and in these dark days of financial austerity that can’t be a bad thing…Bisous
