He got the expensive part covered when he bought her a Hermes Birkin bag, one of the most coveted bags that money can buy. And he covered the unique part by having the purse hand painted by the artist George Condo. But the artwork wasn’t anything simple it was a full blown statement.
Kim shared a photo of the purse on Instagram tagging it with four hashtags: “#HandPaintedGeorgeCondo #HermesBirkin #OneofOne #ChristmasPresentFromYeezy”
She was happy enough and proud of her present to share it with the world, and she was spotted out and about carrying it around. But the jury is totally out on whether this bizarre Birkin is a hit or a miss. The bag features a topless woman surrounded by monsters. Personally, I think it’s all colors of creepy. A bag that may be one of a kind, but not many would actually carry it.
As for the artist, there is a reason why Kanye West picked George Condo to do this present for Kim Kardashian, Condo has done five, yes five, album covers for Kanye. But this sort of art seems better suited for a wall of someone who prefers the odd and the unusual rather than on a pricey Birkin bag. And really, how many times could Kim carry this bag around?
So what do you think? Is this bag a hit or miss?
