Mark Cross + Grace Kelly & Rear Window

I have been in love with the Mark Cross bag in Rear Window since the first time I saw the movie. In the film, Grace Kelly carries a Mark Cross bag {specially created for the movie} and in a momentous scene; in which the bag steals the scene, Grace Kelly removes her negligee while explaining to her boyfriend that she can travel lightly and be a part of his world.

That bag set my pulse racing {at 7 years old btw} and I have longed for it since. While on my honeymoon, I went to Barney’s and they had an entire wall of reissued Mark Cross bags including the trunk bag from Rear Window! I was torn between buying it {bye bye savings} or searching Ebay on an off chance. I took that chance and found a vintage one in mint condition! It arrived yesterday…I managed to restrain myself from hugging it while sleeping but otherwise haven’t taken my eyes off the bag! It is so exciting to have a lifelong love for a purse become a reality.

    Hi,

    I’m looking for a similar purse and am wondering if you would mind sharing the price that you’ve paid? I’m not sure where to start my search. Thank you and please have a wonderful day.

      Happy to help! I purchased the bag for about $450.00 . The new reissues are available at Barneys or you can search Ebay for a vintage one.
