Capsule Collection OPEN THE WINDOW for Mark Cross 2022


My capsule collection OPEN THE WINDOW for Mark Cross 2022 is inspired from Alfred Hitchcock's movie REAR WINDOW and the symbols of New York City.
The Chinese blogger Samantha (fantastic_bags) presented my bags in her article and took the pictures. 

 

 

Climb the ladder bag
A vertical take on an everyday bag. Drawing on the unique architecture of New York City, as seen in Rear Window, this crossbody is perfectly sized for a day or night out on the town. This satin-lined calfskin crossbody is secured with a unique ladder flap closure. This version is part of Mark Cross Summer 2022 Collection "Open The Window" - is a special-edition capsule inspired by the 1954 Alfred Hitchcock film Rear Window. Made in Italy from smooth calfskin leather. It features ladder-shaped hardware, a uniquely New York feature! As ladders may be climbed, its inclusion further demonstrates the uplifting spirit that informed this capsule. 

 

  

The Building Tote Bag
The Building Tote available in leather, canvas, satin or mirror, features an appliqued leather panel screenprinted with the building motif, an external pocket, designed to resemble an apartment tower in the dark. Through the windows, a few lights even appear to be illuminated, a secondary cleverly disguised internal pocket. This tote bag playfully captures the voyeuristic element that is both so palpable in Rear Window and so unavoidable in a place like New York City (Mark Cross's home). This version is part of Mark Cross Summer 2022 Collection "Open The Window" - is a special-edition capsule inspired by the 1954 Alfred Hitchcock film Rear Window. Made in Italy of mirrored smooth Italian Calfskin and lined in satin with Brick calfskin trim. 

 Open the Window Bag 
The Open the Window bag pays homage to the iconic Rear Window Overnight Case, specially commissioned by Alfred Hitchcock for Grace Kelly to carry in the eponymous film.  This brand-new design is a modern evolution of this signature bag. An Italian calfskin paneled exterior hides a zipper compartment and satin-lined interior, which easily holds all to go from day to night. An external shuttered window ‘mirror’ is a playful nod to the original, and the shoulder strap adds easy functionality. This piece is part of Mark Cross Summer 2022 Collection "Open The Window" - is a special-edition capsule inspired by the 1954 Alfred Hitchcock film Rear Window. Made in Italy and designed in geometric window motifs on smooth calfskin leather.
