What do you buy for the woman who already has a Bentley and 225+ pairs of Louboutins? How about a custom designer bag hand-painted by a world-renowned artist?! With everything on her wish list already in her possession, this was possibly the only option left for Kanye West when it came to shopping for Kim Kardashian’s Christmas present. Lucky for him, the Keeping Up with the Kardashians star didn’t already have one stashed in her palace-sized closet, so the gift was a hit.
Kim showed off her one-of-a-kind present on Instagram the day after Christmas, posting a photo of the bag and captioning it “#HandPaintedGeorgeCondo #HermesBirkin #OneofOne #ChristmasPresentFromYeezy.”Wow, easy on the hashtags, Kimberly.
Kanye commissioned renowned artist George Condo to paint the Hermes Birkin bag, which is roughly the size of a Smart Car. The world-famous artist went with a surrealist scene featuring scary-looking naked people that will probably give little North West nightmares one day, but Kim seems to love it so it’s all good. In fact, the Keeping Up with the Kardashians star has already been spotted out and about with her new bag, when she and Yeezy were photographed shopping in Woodland Hill, California earlier this week.
This isn’t the first time Kanye West has sought out George Condo for his skills with the paintbrush, either.In 2010, the artistic geniuses collaborated on ‘Ye’s album cover for My Beautiful Dark Twisted Fantasy, where Condo created five different covers for Kanye to choose from. Perhaps the most memorable was one that featured a naked sphinx straddling the rapper on a couch, which iTunes and Wal-Mart later banned. Apparently, not everyone shares Kanye’s love for sphinxes in their b-day suits.
