I don’t know about you, but I dream of going on an adventure during the golden age of travel. Travelers dressed up to get on an airplane and carried chic luggage like trunks, hat boxes, and small toiletry hold-alls.

Fortunately for me, we all can have a piece of the nostalgia with Mark Cross’ inaugural luggage collection. The brand that started in 1845 has become an American classic known for luxury and style. One of their most popular bags is the Grace, named after Grace Kelly who used a Mark Cross bag in Alfred Hitchock’s film, “Rear Window.”

For the new launch, the brand has designed four pieces that make up the collection. One side of the spectrum is the lightweight 22’ trolley and small roller bag that resembles a sleek pilot’s bag. Both are more classically designed luggage with interior and exterior zippers for extra storage.

The line also includes stackable Grace Trunks that come in three sizes, and the Grace Trolley, which is essentially the Grace Trunk with wheels. They come in neutral like black and brown, or more fun playful colors like orange, purple, baby blue, and even a sky printed option.

And with the holidays just around the corner, a piece of Mark Cross of luggage would be perfect for the stylish traveler in your life.
