Kanye West Commissioned An Artist To Paint A $40,000 Birkin Bag As Kim Kardashian's Christmas Gift

Business Insider

It was a good Christmas for new mom Kim Kardashian, who received probably the most expensive, bizarre purse ever from her fashion-forward fiancé, Kanye West.

Kardashian posted the below to her Instagram account Thursday night:

"#HandPaintedGeorgeCondo   #HermesBirkin #OneofOne   #ChristmasPresentFromYeezye"

We're sure it's what Kim has always wanted!

While a Hermés Birkin bag alone ranges in price from  $7,400 to $150,000, George Condo paintings have been displayed  in such prestigious museums as the Whitney, Guggenheim, and MOMA.

The Cut puts the specific bag's cost at $40,000, but has " no guess on what he paid Condo,"  calling it " the ugliest bag in the history of civilization."

But this isn't the first time West and Condo have collaborated —  the artist also illustrated  West's 2010 album " My Beautiful Dark Twisted Fantasy ."
