"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.
