A ROYAL DANDY OF DESIGN:MODERN TWIST ON BRITISH TRADITION INSPIRES THE FALL COLLECTION FROM CROSS®

As plaids perk up wardrobes this season, CROSS infuses a modern interpretation of British tradition into its new accessories collection. With a return to the classics as one of the fashion directions of fall, CROSS incorporates the look and feel of beloved British fabrics into its pens, business totes, leather, and stationery. On-trend hues and detailing add to the allure of these fall accessories, the perfect enhancement to stylish wardrobes.

The new CROSS collections will debut in September at all CROSS stores, at www.cross.com, and through select retailers in the United States.

CROSS TOWN COMPUTER BAG COLLECTION MIXES IT UP

Modern plaids, deep purple, warm gray and rich chocolate hues, gunmetal hardware – these are just some of the signature elements of the new CROSS TOWN computer bags. Each computer bag is designed for optimal functionality, with an interior design that performs as a laptop bag, but with an exterior so stylish that you can embrace it like your favorite handbag. Tote just one bag instead of two with a CROSS TOWN biz bag, so you can move through your entire day’s adventures – business and pleasure – with assured style and performance.

This fall’s softly structured bags mix preppy menswear fabrics with patent leather and contrast edge tipping that give a current twist on classic design. With five styles and six color selections, you can also choose a bag in solid grape or black as updated staples in your accessory wardrobe.

Features of each bag include: protective, padded compartment that fits a standard slim laptop computer (in most styles a 15” pc or 13-15”Mac); complimentary CROSS mini pen in dangling charm, so your pen is ready when you are; interior pockets including triple pen holder, cell phone pocket, accessory pocket and interior zip pocket. Suggested retail prices range from $195-$325.

CENTURY II PAISLEY

This limited edition ballpoint pen blends paisley with soft metallics to create a sophisticated wrap-around pattern of regal beauty. The pattern with its ombre color effects and whimsical paisley print is an overlay on glimmering metallic lacquer for subtle shine. In sync with the spirit of the season, this au courant CROSS pen features lustrous, chrome-plated appointments. Available in three chic colors: rose blush, champagne and blue silver, with an s.r.p. of $60.

APOGEE® EXECUTIVE COLLECTION

Cross introduces the Apogee Executive collection rendered in majestic, precious metals and inspired by the textural quality of twill fabric. The engraved design of this writing instrument feels sculptural to the touch and precisely balanced in the hand, a nod to well-tailored bespoke suits with their fine fabrics and fit. An unabashedly modern writing instrument, this pen speaks success, bringing distinction to everyday rituals with an exuberant design and ample scale. The Apogee Executive collection is an expression of functional jewelry, with a proprietary deep-cut design and a beautiful hand-polished finish for gem-like brilliance.

This collection will be available in: sterling silver with platinum plated appointments; sterling silver with gold plated appointments; 18K rose gold plate with platinum plated appointments; and 23K heavy-gold plate with gold plated appointments. The Apogee Executive comes in three writing technologies – ballpoint, Selectip® rolling ball, and fountain pens with an 18K solid gold nib. These pens may be personalized with engraving on the band or a monogram on the cap. Suggested retail prices range from $150 to $290.

WOMEN’S AUTOCROSS LEATHER WALLETS

Like a beautiful pair of spectator pumps, the Autocross Leather Collection updates classic style with its feminine color combinations and instantly appealing design. Rhythmically placed perforations in contrasting tones accentuate the design of this fresh collection that contains a selection of wallets and card cases, each rendered in supple, pebbled leather. Among the women’s style options are envelope and accordion wallets, bifold wallets, pouches, and card cases, each with leather-lined interiors.

The gorgeous colors include black with turquoise accents, brown with pink accents, pink with orange accents, and a bronze hue. A CROSS mini pen with textural engraving and telescoping twist action is integrated into the design of each wallet for a quick note or signature.

Autocross, one of the company’s most successful recent designs, now extends to this category of personal accessories with this pretty treatment that features clean lines, gently rounded curves and corners. Suggested retail prices for the women’s collection range from $55-$95.

MEN’S AUTOCROSS MONEY PIECES

The Autocross design hints at sporty, auto-inspired details influenced by the history of CROSS. Invoking some of the fundamental design elements of the Streamline Era of the 1930’s, these new accessories for men are based on the guiding principle of utility, including a mini pen for in-the-moment functionality. The full grain leather, in tones of brown and black, is run through a tumbling process that enhances the softness of the leather and creates a natural pebbled appearance, while also immersing the leather for maximum color saturation.

The men’s leather collection includes bifold wallets, trifold wallets, card cases and coat wallet. There is an integrated SIM card pocket on most styles to safely and conveniently hold your SIM card for cellular devices such as mobile computers and phones. Suggested retail prices for this collection range from $45 to $85.

CROSS SIGNATURE JOURNALS

For your bag, or as a great girlfriend gift, these journals feature fabulous colors for fall with contrasting perforations and stitching. The design incorporates a complimentary CROSS mini pen so that you’re always ready to write a thought or that bit of essential info. The high-quality, lined paper is acid-free; a brown ribbon marker indicates your desired page. An expandable pocket on the inside back cover holds notes. These leatherette journals come in brown with orange trim, violet with gray trim, or pink with red trim. An additional pen loop accommodates all full-size CROSS writing instruments. Small size, s.r.p. $20; medium size s.r.p. $25; large size, s.r.p. $30.
