Leather and snakeskin ‘Novak’ handbag with “Press Sample” label, Alexander McQueen

This design is the ‘Novak’ bag, part of McQueen's first complete accessories collection, proving an instant success that prompted long waiting lists and instant ‘It-Bag’ status. This bag was inspired by actress Kim Novak of Alfred Hitchcock’s Vertigo, who he adored as child and it was a top pick for celebrities such as Beyoncé and Sarah Jessica Parker. This bag was donated by Alexander McQueen to the Museum of Bags and Purses in 2007.
