History Repeats Itself: Mark Cross Returns to Saks

The Venerable Leather Goods Line Returns to Saks.

Before there the Chanel 2.55, Celine Luggage, or Fendi Baguette, the ultimate it bag was once a Mark Cross. What started as a saddle-making company in 1845 became a destination for luxury leather goods by 1902, with a flagship right on Fifth Avenue not far from Saks. After changing hands over the course of the 20th century and closing down in the 1990s, Mark Cross relaunched in 2011. It’s now come full circle, returning to its Fifth Avenue roots at Saks, where you can find the timeless styles that once graced the arms of Zelda Fitzgerald and Grace Kelly.

Sara Battaglia For Salvatore Ferragamo Hits Saks

The Maverick Bag Designer Brings Her Signature Quirk to the House of Ferragamo.

Six years old when she created her first handbag, designer Sara Battaglia grew up in a household brimming with imagination and creativity. Her mother was a sculptor; her two brothers became an art dealer and a prop stylist, respectively, and her sister the fashion editor and street-style superstar, Giovanna Battaglia Engelbert. So it was no surprise when Sara struck out on her own in 2010 with an eponymous handbag line, infused with the inventive spirit of her childhood.

Now, she brings that energy to a new collaboration with Salvatore Ferragamo. The quirkiness and humor of Sara Battaglia’s style joins the complex, unrivaled craftsmanship of Ferragamo – you can see it in pieces like a rainbow-striped bucket bag, finished with a bright satin drawstring and swingy leather fringe, or a slim little crossbody bad stitched with a cheeky pair of red lips.

Celebrating the idea of lo splendore della vita - the splendor of life – these two icons of Italian style, one a beacon of tradition and heritage, the other of 21st century wit and modernity, come together in a capsule collection that’s sure to add a wallop of splendor to your own closet.
