Kanye West's Christmas Gifts Are Just What You'd Expect
In a word: challenging.
By Alex Rees
After (likely fake) news of his plan to give Kim Kardashian her likeness rendered in a classic Warholian screenprint leaked last month, Kanye West had to improvise. Luckily, he's a lateral thinker and found some new and equally questionable artwork to gift her for Christmas. Thank goodness for that. Kim is now the proud owner of a new and unique Hermès Birkin handbag, a bag that features the work of artist George Condo naked ladies, green face paint, nipples akimbo. (Condo also painted artwork for Kanye's My Beautiful Dark Twisted Fantasy album.) As a one-off, the bag is priceless in every sense of the word, but for comparison's sake, a Hermès Birkin this size retails for $16,000.
The Christmas morning "oh, you shouldn't have" punch line from Kim is an obvious one too obvious perhaps. In fact, it's best left to Instagram user llondon26, commenting after Kim shared a gallery-esque photo of her Birkin: "Now does he get why Louis Vuitton didn't wanna hear from him?" Wrap that snark up and serve it with a bow please, because it's perfect.
