Q: What's the most covetable designer bag of the season?
A: The Alexander McQueen Novak - which is, of course, sold out.
The good news for those of your wishing to get hold of the handbag du jour is that Net a Porter, one of the few designer retailers who don't operate a waiting-list policy, is getting more in stock. You'll need to chain yourself to your desk though. When the new stock comes in, they'll send out an email to everyone who's signed up for their notification list. Then, if it's anything like the Chloe Paddington, the bag will sell out again in a matter of minutes. The bag comes in brown or red for £595 / $1190.
