Kanye West joined the ranks of countless other men and gave his fiancé Kim Kardashian a designer handbag for Christmas – but this one was customised with an unknown price tag.
Kim Kardashian couldn't wait to show off her Christmas present and hit the shops in Hollywood with her expensive gift hanging off her arm.
The specially commissioned bag, is one of a kind hand painted by celebrated artist George Condo, whose work hangs in the Museum of Modern Art in NY.
The contemporary artist who is much admired by the rapper, hand painted directly onto the tan leather bag.
The image chosen by Kanye for this bag shows two nude women with what appears to be a man in a monster mask behind them.
A Hermes of this kind normally retails for €7000 plus, but having a leading artist hand paint directly onto the leather, leaves this bag with an unknown price tag.
Kim proudly showed off the bag on her Instagram account : captioning it #HandPaintedGeorgeCondo #HermesBirkin #OneofOne #ChristmasPresentFromYeezy.
However, reaction was not so enthusiastic. One commenter replied: Is that a joke? What a hideous bag, and it's even more hideous how much was probably spent on that piece of s**t.”
