Ah, still in two minds over this bag. What I like about this bag is it's structured shape but I am suppose to be on a bag budget now.

But I must admit, the dark brown does look dreamy, like chocolate...

Thanks for the AWESOME photos La Mie.

You've made my life more difficult though ....I had already decided not to get the croc Novak (just the leather version, but I want it in a bold color) and wait for my croc Kelly, but seeing those pictures has rewhet my appetite.

Glad everyone likes them, I figured I'd share the wealth since I got the issue for free from a nice SA at neiman :p

Plus scanning allowed me to look at the details more closely than in the actual magazine

Chocolate is sold out on NAP, for now. Kinda regret didn't get on the list earlier. It's so beautiful! Red is stunning as well, but might be too much for me.

Say hello to the proud new owner of one sexy red bag~

Seiously though, thank you sooo so much to those that posted about preordering on NAP, without your awesome know-how, I probably would have missed my chance to get it! As soon as I finish posting, there will be some overdue karma distributed

La Mie - I'm so thrilled for you ! Please tell us what you think when you see it IRL. I am still undecided if it's really my style but I'm sure it'll be fabulous on you ! :p

You just write to specialorders@net-a-porter.com seems like a new thing they are doing where you can pre-reserve a bag and you have 48 hours to decide if you want it, after which they will release it.

Thanks so much! I will be sure to post pics and my review, hopefully on monday evening, when I arrive back at my apartment.

Now I just need a perfect matching shoe, according to that article in wwd I posted Anyone know of a beautiful round toe or peep toe red pump? Is McQueen making one? I felt like everything on the runway was kim novak-esque bone all the way, but then I saw the gold and leopard ones on NAP and I started to wonder about it... maybe I should post a shoe thread over there?

Also, I forgot to say that NAP's special orders lady, Lucie, was very polite, and seemed to answer special orders email every weekday at around midmorning for me, which I suppose would be midafternoon for her since NAP is in London.

I think someday I'd like to own the croc, and since all signs point to mcqueen making this a signature bag that will reappear for many seasons down the road, for now I'll just sit back and wait for a black or rougue hermes-ish color to come out After all, a great croc bag will always be in style.
Thank God for Hermes' prices, they enable us to justify nearly anything else I guess I prolly will spring for croc ... one of these days ... my dream would be to find something vintage that I like more than anything new for much less money

Enjoy your Novak

I think the brown is gorgeous, although that said, If there were no red, or equally appealing classic but vibrant color (like perhaps the green if it's a nice shade...), I almost definately would not have bought it. To me, without either the croc or the color, the bag is not as much of a standout.

I don't know if that helps your decision at all, but I hope the right bag finds it's way to you

la_mie congrats! I've decided to pass up my pre-ordered for the time being. Would you be able to confirm if the actual bag at the top area next to the zipper on both sides are bending. From NAP picture it looks like it is but it could be the lighting.
