I adore Mark Cross for their timelessly elegant sensibility, rich history (which involves a classic movie star following), and emphasis on structure. But as much as I appreciate the Scottie bag for it’s unabashedly ladylike attitude, I can see how it can feel a little…mature.
Which is why I’m thrilled by Scottie’s new makeover! In time for Fall, the Cross classic has been reinvented into a miniature wristlet clutch that feels very right now, whatever your age. But not “right now” in the sense that it will fade as the trend does (like some bolder cuff-like wristlets). This leather-and-push-lock baby is designed to endure and surpass. And in three shades to choose from – clementine-yellow, burgundy, and scarlet – you can pick a hue that’s especially and uniquely you. Age is just a state of mind, and the Scottie just changed hers. Available for pre-order at Barneys New York for $1,695 (expect delivery in October).
