NEW YORK — The 168-year-old Mark Cross brand relaunched with Barneys New York just over a year ago, and in that time has managed to grow its business domestically, internationally and is in the midst of developing luggage and a complete men’s collection.
In the U.S., the luxury handbags are exclusive to Barneys through the end of 2013 (the original exclusivity deal for 2012 was extended for an additional year). As of the fall 2012 season, the company opened up international distribution, according to Neal Fox, chief executive officer of Mark Cross.
