New York City - The "Collection I" by Mark Cross is launched this month, and debuting exclusively at Barney's NY.

The bags range in price from $1,495 to $2,350, and include a collection made of Italian leathers and a refined color palette.

Mark Cross was originally established as a saddler and harness-maker - bought by the Murphy family in 1875. Gerald and Sara Murphy were good friends with renown figures such as F Scott Fitzgerald, Picasso, Cole Porter, Ernest Hemingway and Dorothy Parker.

"Collection I" produces pieces in the same factories as the celebrated originals, with aesthetic inspired by the vintage archives, which have been translated into a modern vision.

Today's Grace and the Scottie groups are both inspired by styles done decades ago along with the Marina clutch, which was inspired by a vintage piece.

The "Grace Box" bag is a very specific bag created by Murphy for Grace Kelly's role in "Rear Window." The piece became so famous that the company eventually produced it for their customers to satiate demand.

The Madison group represents a new vision of sleek sophistication, made with little hardware and with the utmost attention to detail and fine craftsmanship.
