Mark Cross, America’s first purveyor of fine leather goods, has been expertly crafting their incredibly chic accessories since 1845. However, the design most synonymous with the Cross name, the Grace Box Bag, came more than a century later in 1954. Originally produced for Grace Kelly to use as a prop in the movie, Rear Window, the Grace Box remains a staple of American history and style to this day. This iconic bag has been slightly altered since its debut, but still maintains the natural sophistication that we fell in love with on the big screen. With its clean lines and structured shape, the Grace Box holds a certain retro allure; like a magnificent little treasure you unearthed at your favorite vintage shop in Paris. An added cross-body strap, interior zipper pocket, and wide variety of skins, patterns, and colors, make this bag a perfect companion for the modern woman. Created by a traditional, American brand and inspired by a hollywood golden-girl turned Princess, the Grace Box bag is a true emblem of elegance, and yes, grace.
