Kim Kardashian's new Kanye-gifted Birkin bag is hand-painted with nudes and a demon
Did you expect anything less? Kim Kardashian shared this photo of one of her favorite Christmas gifts from Kanye West on Instagram Thursday night: Based on the hashtags that accompanied the photo, it's a Hermes Birkin bag, hand-painted by George Condo, the man behind the five album covers of Yeezy's "My Beautiful Dark Twisted Fantasy." Embellished with images of three female nude bodies and one male … um … demon with a green face, the bag could almost represent a sixth version of the album art. But People notes that the painting is similar to Condo's 2004 piece, "Nocturnal Figure Composition."
The bag is, according to Kim, "one of one," meaning no other bags like it exist. And that may be a good thing, at least in the eyes of the folks who follow Kim's Instagram. While more than 183,000 users like the accessory, those who shared comments minced no words. Ace_1993's review was particularly concise: "Rich ppl spend their money on the dumbest things ever."
